Hi Ozzie, my name is Silvio Rodriguez and I was also sent to Helena, MT in August of 1962. I lived at Brondel Hall till 1965, but continued living in Montana until 1997. I am now back in Montana and getting together a reunion of kids that were in Montana in the 60s. I would like to invite you and your family to this reunion. Please go to this link for details, and add yourself to the classmates: www.brondelreunion2013.com
Please let me know who may have a list of the kids that stayed at the orphanage. If possible get in contact with me as soon as you can. Thank you.

I went to New Mexico, but spent a few years in Gt Falls, Montana, while I was in the Air Force, and I have been thru most of the areas that you mentioned. I too got caught off guard, by the cold weather.

I don't think we evrer meet, our lives has been very close. I was in Helena for almost 5 year, the lived in NJ. New Providence for almost 3 year then moved to Westfield for 25 years, raised 3 sons, and after they left the house my wife and I moved to NYC. I went to Helena on November 1962, I traveled with a 11 years old boy that went to St. Joseph orphanage. I can remember his name. Maybe some day we will finally meet.
