2006 GRAD CARD
glitter alpha: Kristin CB
stick pins: Jenn Star
intensity Kit: Lauren Grier
Congratulations to our Grads at the Okanagan Similkameen Learning Centre, where my dear husband instructs!
The Centre is a place where adults attend on a drop-in basis to complete their highschool. Ages range from teens to 80 and upwards! I know firsthand the value of the Centre as I graduated a mere 6 years ago! There are Centres in three communities - Keremeos, Oliver and our own town of Osoyoos. I would especially like to congratulate our Osoyoos grads - Miles says Rob Tunnel has worked hard for his certificate, and there's a soft spot there for him. Patty and I've enjoyed 'Scrapping' together (scrapbooking, that is...we DON'T fight in school...) I look forward to working with you more, Patty!
Linda James - what a sweetie! Linda is a Gramma who has been not only attending school for this past decade, she's also held a job down at a local cafe. She just bubbles and glitters with happiness - WAY TO GO Linda, you deserve this so much!!
Val Scheer. Your not HERE - but you will be with each of us tonight. You worked SO hard. School was a passion with you. You lost a valiant battle with cancer, but you won over going passively. We love and miss you Val. Just 3 months short of your celebration day - we will have a space reserved for you tonight, center stage ... in our hearts. You were a HUGE inspiration to all, teachers and staff and students. We will look out for your husband, Gary in his time of need. We are so glad he will have an opportunity to share tonight what a special person you are, and what school meant to you.
Please pray for the Grads of our school as they accept their awards today.
BARB'S TIP #48
TO 'PIT' A CHERRY - CLIP IT
This is a way you can use a paper clip to pit a cherry - Over a bowl or sink, unfold a paper clip at the center, and depending on the size of the cherry, slide either the clip's big or small end throught the top. Loosen the pit and pull! You can even leave a stem on your cherry, for decoration - simply insert the clip from the bottom. Be careful, as cherry juice stains!
