Random Island Academy held its annual Remembrance Day Assembly today to honour those who have served and those who continue to serve our country. We were very pleased to have Canadian Armed Forces veteran Dale Benson speak to our students today, and we were equally pleased to have members from the Canadian Rangers attend the ceremony.
We would like to thank Kayla Watton for emceeing the event, Mr. Cook for leading us in the act of remembrance, Damian Marsh for his reading of the poem, ‘In Flanders Fields’, & Mr. Mulrooney for delivering a message from the office. We were also entertained by the elementary choral group and Matthew Drodge, Sheridan Parrott, & Keisha Parrott.
Members of the Random LIons Club also attended and presented the awards for the annual Peace Poster Contest; the theme this year was ‘The Future Of Peace’. Lion Bev Penny (organizer of this event) and Head Lion Jim Penney presented the prizes for the annual peace poster contest. We would like to congratulate Jake Baker on winning first place; Second place went to Faith Butt, and third place went to John Frye. Thank you to all who participated in this event. It was a great year for peace posters!
Please remember to take the time on November 11 at 11o’clock to have a moment of silence and remember the sacrifices of those who have served!
