So much work also went into the program for the evening, the students sang wonderfully, and the slide show sure brought back memories!The gym was full to capacity, and there were still people standing in the hallway! We estimate that at least 275 people came to help us celebrate our new building. It was wonderful to see so many people there showing their support, and taking an interest in our school. Many former students, and of course present members, but also some (hopefully) new members.
The highlight of the evening was the unveiling of the new sign out front, which clearly proclaims who we are. It's a beautiful sign! My pictures aren't great, but you get the idea....
The student body. Don't they look great?

There were so many things I didn't get pictures of. Such as the huge tree in the gym made entirely of construction paper hands (the students did a lot of tracing and cutting last week...) The amazing bulletin boards by the front door..... the crowds of people..... it was such a great evening! What a wonderful blessing for our society!
On another note, if you read my previous post, you know that Art's car was a write-off after getting flooded....
Well, the insurance offered him a very generous settlement, so this is his new ride:
A 2008 Impala. Black. Pretty cool. And so far, I've driven it more than he has..... (lol!)
I'm sure that will change VERY quickly!
Enjoy your March Break! Looks like it's going to be a beautiful week!
