With Remembrance Day just around the corner, our thoughts turn to our Canadian Forces and the tremendous sacrifce they make each and every day for our country.
As a symbol of support for our troops, we encourage everyone to wear red this Friday November 2nd. A sincere thank you is extended to the men and women of our Canadian Military, past and present, who help keep us safe and guarantee our many freedoms.
Congrats to both Croft 1 and Croft 2 for some excellent soccer action at last week-end's jamboree. Special congrats going out to Croft 1 who took home the silver medal!!
Also, special thanks goes out to our two coaches, Colleen Barry and Charlene Coull-Savard, for their dedication throughout the soccer season.
We are all very proud of the hard work and sportsmanship displayed by our boys and girls this year. Two thumbs way up!!!!
