Jacey Gamroth placed third in the 100-metre dash and fourth in shot put; Tianna Gamroth placed first in shot put, first in discus, first in long jump, first in the 100 metres and second in triple jump; Haley Grice placed second in shot put and second in discus; Madelyn Schauer placed second in discus, second in shot put and third in the 1,500-metre run; the Grade seven relay team with Leif Neufeld, Madelyn Schauer, Liam Grice and Tianna Gamroth placed fifth.

Congratulations to all the students.

Congratulations to Grant and Judy Musgrove on the birth of a son, Tate, born June 4 in Red Deer. Siblings Abby, Bailey and Raymond welcome the new addition.

Special birthday greetings from the community go out to Don Emmett, who celebrated his 80th birthday Saturday with a houseful of family and friends.

Bill Tomlinson had a birthday Sunday. He’s now employed by the federal government and will be picking up his paycheque at the post office. Best wishes, Bill.
