Smile Introduction

In the summer of 2007 Tom Brooke (Kitchener, ON) began wondering where his fellow class mates where. Joining a commercial classmate's site had limited success. In November of 2008 Jack Peltier (Calgary, AB) and soon thereafter Jean (Brown) Williams (Orlando, FL) joined the same site and an exchange of ideas and friends was soon underway. The three became an interesting team . As they talked with other classmates, memories about Merlin itself became a focal point as well as just finding classmates from MDHS. Jack, due his excellent memory of Merlin became our Historian. Jean became our Private Investigator due to her excellent tracking skills and Tom became the Systems Administrator due to his computer skills. It wasn't long before the Jack & Tom discussed the reasons many did not join the commercial site and it was felt that the cost was prohibitive and site was very impersonal. Shortly thereafter they decided to share the cost to bring this free bulletin board online January 30, 2009.

Our goal is to list everyone who ever attended MDHS and contact as many as possible. Our classmates are living all over North America and we hope that word of this website will spread and allow them to reach out and touch old friends.

The development of the site has now expanded into full historical record of the life and times in Merlin and the surrounding area. Pictures and records are constantly being added some dating back to the 1920's. Several links have been added to other community sites.

If you or you know of anyone who wants to contribute material please use the Contact US tab at the bottom of the screen.

We want to thank everyone for joining and especially those who have contributed their time, material and information to make this site informative. Special thanks to my daughter Michelle and her husband for their technical expertise.

You don't have to be a MDHS classmate to join. All friends of Merlin are welcome. The website is FREE - there is no charge to join but you do have to be a member to post, contact other members and to view attachments.

No commercial advertising is permitted. Any member who posts commercial or spam messages will be deleted. We reserve the right to ban/delete any user not deemed to be in the best interest of this site.

Thank you,

The Merlin Forum Team
