"I have this a.m. seen the restored School Banner and am so thrilled with the finished result. Thank you so much for your part in helping to prolong the life of this treasure of our Church.
Several of our Guild ladies were present too and they expressed what fine work you have done. Interestingly, the French newspaper you found in the backing, gives credence to the story of the origin of the banner. "
