Mentors' contributions make difference in lives of students

I would like to thank the following individuals for volunteering their time as mentors with the Aspirations Advocate Mentor Program at Skyview High School: Thelma Antila, Rick Abbott, Doug Blossom, Tim Cooper, Scott Earsley, Joan Miller, Brad Phillips, Janet St. Clair, Pete Sprague, Scott Stubbert and Marlys Verba.

These dedicated men and women have spent countless hours working with our students. They have given of their time, their talents and, most of all, of themselves. The concern for our youth and fine character of these individuals is notable and commendable.

Mentors, Skyview High School is a better place because of your willingness to make a difference in the lives of young people. Thank you for all that you do. It is truly my privilege and a joy to work with you.

Winter festival fun for all

Feb. 16, we had our first Winter Fun Fest Day at Laidlaw. The day was planned as a family fun day and a fund-raiser for Children's Miracle Network, our sponsored charity. It was a great success and lots of fun for the families that came and participated.

We need to thank Mitch Michaud from the Peninsula Dog Sled and Racing Association, and Tammy Westover for bringing their dog teams and giving out rides. Also, thanks to Sarah and Mike Donchi of Sarah's Sleigh Rides for the horse and sleigh rides. We had games for the kids, a great potluck and ice fishing on Sport Lake. I want to thank all the committee that helped set this up and made the day a success. A special thanks to Mark Conway and Jerry Westmoreland; you guys made this a great success. To all the people who came, thank you for your donations and hope to see you back next year.
