It’s a “C-D” Day!

Happy Birthday to Tristan Chatman and Dylan Lowery. Also to Alanna VanWiechen who is having a birthday tomorrow.

Welcome to the following guest staff today: Martin Zver for Lianne Garland, Mike Hambly for Andrew Henderson (am) and Jonathan Hayes (pm), Pamela Betteridge for Tim Lea, Brian Somers for Peter Connaughton, Donna White for Janet MacDougall-Turner, Lynn Gorvette for Gail Greene (pm), and Wanda Cheverie for Yvonne Higgins.

Wow! The Women’s Basketball team beat Morell 39 – 36 last night in a very entertaining game. It was back and forth all game. With less then two minutes left in the game, the girls were down by 3 points. But they never gave up and battled back to go up by 3 with less than 20 second left in the game. Great job ladies!!!
