Hello Elizabeth, We made Sorel by 7 PM. I called Albert on the phone and wanted us to come to Drummondville but we stayed at the Sorel Hotel. We saw Drummondville lose a tough game 3 to 2. The game went 10 inings. Firoud picked for Drummonville. We got your letter tonight and we regret that you couldn’t come because we are staying at a pretty classy dump and we have twin beds.

  2. The back of the vehicle looks like a face–at least in the scan!

    • Hello Burt,
      I’m glad you like the postcard of Sorel. I don’t deal in postcards – I just collect and study them. Sorel is part of a Cities of Quebec collection that I’m building to help me in my teaching of Quebec social studies in my elementary school classrooms.
      What is your interest in Sorel?
      Evelyn in Montreal
