Cottage 5 was adjacent to the large building which was used as administrative offices and rec room for the children’s home. Later this cottage was used by the Boys and Girls Club.
I lived in cottage 5. 1984 – 1985. I was 13 when I first arrived. I was picked on in all sorts of ways. Scares that have lasted me a lifetime. I once wished everybody ill will. Now I’m more curious than anything. I think people treat others poorly, because they were treated poorly, and/or were never taught how to care or be kind. It’s sad that “we” have to be taught that. –A.S.
I was in Cottage 5 1975-1977. Osbournes were the cottage parents. Remember Vicky, Sue, Sandy, Sandra, Laura, and a few others. There were good times in the time spent there. I will never regret being sent there, learned alot and a better person for it. –Debbie Duerksen-Flatt
I lived in cottage 5. There was was a great group of girls there. I felt like they were sisters. We made Beckers life a living hell. And for that I am sorry. We called her beck beck becker and made it sound like we were calling the chickens. Shame on us. I would like to thank the adults that tried to change me. In the long run you made a great diff. in my life. I thank-you all for the time you spent with us. Sorry I gave you such a hard time. But you did make a diff. in my life. -Betty Hogland
