Heather MoatYou brought back memories of Miss Scholar’s class yes not enough books so we shared.That was a long time ago,you have a great memory.Cheers

from Don Andrews… “hello almontemay years ago when i was in grade one, mrs scholars class, i wonder how many people remember her.there was always a shortage of books and we had to double up.i was always paired up with elizabeth warner, me being from the country and being very shy, i think i was doing a lot of blushing.she moved away and i have thought of her many times over the years”,-Don Andrews

Norma QuinnMiss Scholar was my grade one teacher and also taught my dad

Janet I. ScottMiss Scholar taught my brother David Ritchie too.

Sandy FranceMiss Schoular taught my father in 1918 and me in 1946.

Susan Elliott ToppingDuncan J. Schoular’s daughter Elizabeth, is also a retired teacher.

Dave RooneyI delivered the Ottawa Journal to her in the 70s until the Journal shut down. Very nice woman.

Margaret Jones DrennanMiss Schoular taught me in 1950. I remember that I loved her class. Every Hallowe’en I remember her well because she showed us how to draw and colour pumpkins.

Margaret McNeelyIf u check out the pic of my 1943 school class Miss Schoular is in the background.

Janet I. ScottShe taught my brother in Grade 1. Probably 1954 at Church St. Public School.

Judy MortonLoved Miss Schouler, my first grade teacher. I was only five years old in Grade 1. I went over to the school with a friend when his Mom was registering him for Grade 1 and since there was an xtra desk, Miss Schoular said I could stay, so that’s how I started school at age 1!

Peppy MockoI remember her as a real nice lady & a character

Sheila BelrangoIt was ‘Miss’ Schouler and she taught Grade one in the ChurchStreet Public School. She taught both my Mother and myself. There are a very few teachers today as dedicated as she was.

I remember Miss Schoular also, although she never taught me as I moved to Almonte from Windsor in 1952 when I was placed in Miss Ross’s Grade Four class with Don and his cousin, Bob Andrews. We went through the next four years in the same classes and you’re right Don–you appeared very shy, an admirable quality in hindsight!
I met Jack De Sadeleer once as his sister, Judy, was one of my best friends until she married and moved to southern Ontario.As to the photo of the grocery store (see story), I don’t believe it was ever Harry Gunn’s. In the fifties it was owned by a Mr. Pobst ( sp.? ) until he closed it . But you would buy items at the counter and he or his assistant, Harold Woermke, would climb a ladder and take the items off the shelves, wrap them in brown paper, tie them with a string and hand them to you. Kind of like a sketch from “the Two Ronnies “.He closed the store in the late fifties and it became Mappins Jewellry Store, managed by Mr. Pobst. In 1965, my father, Perce Baker, bought the building from Bob France and it became Baker’s Gifts and Flowers, as my dad had also purchased The Flower Shop on Farm Street from George Gomme.Harry’s grocery store was on Bridge Street, just behind our building. He later had a dress shop across from Peterson’s Dairy on Mill Street. Since my husband Derek died almost two years ago,I now spend my time living between Ottawa and London, England where my fiancé lives and when people there ask me where I’m from, I very proudly say ” ALMONTE ” !Marte ( Baker ) Sheldrake

About lindaseccaspina

Linda Knight Seccaspina was born in Cowansville, Quebec about the same time as the wheel was invented and the first time she realized she could tell a tale was when she got caught passing her smutty stories around in Grade 7 at CHS by Mrs. Blinn. When Derek "Wheels" Wheeler from Degrassi Jr. High died in 2010, Linda wrote her own obituary. Some people said she should think about a career in writing obituaries. Before she laid her fingers to a keyboard, Linda owned the eclectic store Flash Cadilac and Savannah Devilles in Ottawa from 1976-1996. After writing for years about things that she cared about or pissed her off she finally found her calling. Is it sex drugs and rock n' roll you might ask? No, it is history. Seeing that her very first boyfriend in Grade 5 (who she won a Twist contest with in the 60s) is the head of the Brome Misissiquoi Historical Society and also specializes in local history back in Quebec, she finds that quite funny. She writes every single day and is also a columnist for Hometown News and Screamin's Mamas. She is a volunteer for the Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum, an admin for the Lanark County Genealogical Society Facebook page, and a local guest speaker. She has been now labelled an historian by the locals which in her mind is wrong. You see she will never be like the iconic local Lanark County historian Howard Morton Brown, nor like famed local writer Mary Cook. She proudly calls herself The National Enquirer Historical writer of Lanark County, and that she can live with. Linda has been called the most stubborn woman in Lanark County, and has requested her ashes to be distributed in any Casino parking lot as close to any Wheel of Fortune machine as you can get. But since she wrote her obituary, most people assume she's already dead. Linda has published six books, "Menopausal Woman From the Corn," "Cowansville High Misremembered," "Naked Yoga, Twinkies and Celebrities," "Cancer Calls Collect," "The Tilted Kilt-Vintage Whispers of Carleton Place," and "Flashbacks of Little Miss Flash Cadilac." All are available at Amazon in paperback and Kindle. Linda's books are for sale on Amazon or at Wisteria · 62 Bridge Street · Carleton Place, Ottawa, Canada, and at the Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum · 267 Edmund Street · Carleton Place, Ottawa, Canada--Appleton Museum-Mississippi Textile Mill and Mill Street Books and Heritage House Museum and The Artists Loft in Smith Falls.
