Karaoke Kids & Awards

It was just like going to the Academy Awards!  The room was full of flashing cameras, proud parents and grandparents in attendance to see their amazing youngsters receive their medals and certificates in our Literary and Poster Contests.  It all started last fall with their participation in our contests at Branch Level, going on to Zone and the anticipation of making it to “District”.  So to that end, it takes a bit of time to get all the results in but we were happy to announce the winners at our last week’s General Meeting and I am pleased to share those results with you now.

Zone B-1:  Cassidy Smith from Fairview Public School won 1st place with her colour poster in the Primary Division giving her a gold medal and a $40.00 monetary prize.  Cassidy also received an Honourable Mention and a $10.00 prize for her poster at District B.  Well done Cassidy!

2nd place and a silver medal along with a $30.00 prize went to Mallory Vaughan from Fairview Public School for her Intermediate Black and White Poster.

A silver medal also went to Esther Westendorp who is home schooled, as well as a $30.00 prize for her Intermediate Essay.

The bronze medal went to Nicole Brown from Fairview Public School and a $20.00 monetary prize in the Junior Poetry Category.

Our congratulations go out to all who participated and it was wonderful to see so many of our own, do so well.  Congratulations to all.  You make us proud!

I am keeping it short this week hoping to save a bit of space for a photo of our winners.  In the meantime, think “green” this is being submitted on Earth Day and we all need to do our bit for our fragile eco-system.  Oh, and speaking of ‘green’ – the ole right winger Dave Green will be at the Legion next weekend reminiscing over the good old days on the hockey circuit.  Come in and share some of your stories.  Call the branch 905-774-5942 for details.
