By now, v/e hope that all
old and nev;, feel at home here in Mono.
Whether you have had time to realize ,i
or not (amid the flurry of sitcases,
truifcs, nev; faces, and introductions),
you are now a part of L'ontreat. It is
true that no organization can be better
than those people who are in it, and fc
that reason, the future of Hontroat lies
in your iiands. From nov/ on, it is up to
you to keep alive the Christian spirit g
friendliness, unselfis ness, truth, ar-'
loyalty, that will make Ilontreat the ki
of place you want it to be.
May t is year be the best yet for v
and for Montreat I
