Though the weather outside was cold and blustery, inside the Oxford Auditorium it was warm and sunny on Saturday! Many, many people came to celebrate belonging to the Woodstock Christian School community - students, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, alumni, friends , neighbours, and even strangers. So many people came out for the day to support the school, to meet with family and friends and just to have FUN being community! And fun it was - lots of laughter and visiting over breakfast and/or lunch, lots of bouncing and games in the children's play area, lots of shopping for those of us who love to shop, and then the finale - a very enthusiastic auction! The youngest person attending was 2 day-old Emmett Paul Wesselson, who anticipates enrolling as a WCS student for the year 2018, and the oldest person enjoying the festivities was one of the founding JKCS Board members, Mr. Klass Visbeek who is 94 years young.
What a blessing, what a wonderful time to celebrate, what an opportunity to thank God for the past, the present and the future of Christian Education in the Woodstock Community! As I think back on the day, I smile at how God has placed us all together to enjoy one another and to serve Him in a special way to be light in His world! Thank you, God!
