    Last week, the Sr. Choir performed two beautiful songs at our bi-annual membership meeting. A HUGE thank you goes to the Sr. Choir, Mrs. Martin and Mrs. Clifford for their hard work in preparing. The song that has stuck with me the most however, is "In Flanders Field". With Remembrance Day quickly approaching, we are preparing our hearts and minds to say "Thank You" to all those who served and continue to serve so that we can live a life of peace. Our thanks and prayers continue to go with them daily, as well as their families, as they sacrifice many things so that we do not need to live in fear. This Friday, we spend time remembering and honouring them with our Remembrance Chapel as well as a moment of silence. I encourage you to join us to remember them, as our Grade 8 class leads us in our chapel at 8:30 Friday morning.

        In Flanders fields the poppies blow
        Between the crosses, row on row,
        That mark our place: and in the sky
        The larks still bravely singing fly
        Scarce heard amid the guns below.
        We are the dead: Short days ago,
        We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
        Loved and were loved: and now we lie
        In Flanders fields!
        Take up our quarrel with the foe
        To you, from failing hands, we throw
        The torch: be yours to hold it high
        If ye break faith with us who die,
        We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
        In Flanders fields            ~ Lt. Cl. John McCrae; May 3, 1915
