Soccer Challenge 2017 Awards
This is photo of a couple of the students from St. Thomas More school who participated in the Soccer Challenge in June of this year. They are the district winners. There were five students in all. These two are still at this school but the other three are in different schools being tracked down to give them their certificates and medals. Also pictured are Br. Stan Balemba and Mike Arsenault, the new principal at St. Thomas More.
In September 2017 there were two separate events in which our brothers participated as photographed by Br. Frank Cuvelier.
The Annual Parish Steak Dinner requires the skills of our BBQ chefs and the equally dedicated indoor food handlers, the quick and efficient cleaners and dish washers and especially our hungry parishioners.
Both the St. Thomas More and St. Paul Parish Schools had their BBQ welcome to both Parents and Students this September 2017. As in past years they called upon members of our council to again successfully handle the BBQs as can be witnessed by the photos below.
The September 2017 General Meeting began with a BBQ hot dog meal. Several other such meetings are scheduled to also begin with a meal.
