Attention Donald Young School students. A Fort High teacher will be on hand March 25 to help with Grade 9 course selection.
In other news, “The Wizard of Oz” was a successful play produced by DYS students and staff. Now they have no use for some costumes, such as two Tin Man costumes, one Dorothy costume, and five tye-dyed T-shirts.
If anyone is interested in these items, call the school at 482-1438.

This past week, I spoke to Stephanie Hawkins about her health while she was shopping at Cloverleaf ShopEasy. She was cheerful, smiling, and said so far all is well. She had been taking her treatments.
We wish you the best of health, Stephanie. We’re all praying for your full recovery!

This week is March Break and I noticed all the college/university students around. Our grandson, Todd Michl, is home from Confederation College, and noticed at the Christian Reformed Church on Sunday morning that the pews had been taken up with these students.
It is fantastic to see them.
Because of March Break, Coffee Break at the C.R.C. was cancelled.
On Wednesdays at noon, the Lenten lunch service continues at St. George’s Anglican, with a meal following in the lower hall. Pastor Andrew Hall of Calvary Baptist was the guest speaker today.
Proceeds from this event are earmarked for the World Relief and Development Fund.

About 60 people attended the St. Patrick’s Day supper Sunday evening at St. Patrick’s Church. The meal consisted of various kinds of stew, buns, coffee, and juice plus two kinds of ice cream.
The low attendance could be blamed on the weatherman, who was not particularly friendly over the entire weekend.
