SCHOOL NEWS Looking for an opportunity to do something fun, that also blesses others in your community? Then think about volunteering with “of Rack and Room”. We are currently looking for volunteers for one morning/afternoon a month (or more would be fantastic). No prior retail experience or knowledge is necessary as we are happy to train. Meet people from the community….fill a necessary void…. and do a little “thrift” shopping as well. It doesn’t get much better than that!! If you’re interested please call Brenda (manager) at 519-440-2744 or Kirsten (our calendar coordinator) at 519-807-5728. Thank you, we look forward to hearing from YOU! The Tuition Bursary Fund at Huron Christian School has been a tremendous source of support for 26 students and their parents during the 2017/18 school year. God has blessed us with generous donors so that to date we have raised $52,000 of our $103,000 goal. Our fiscal year ends on July 31, at which time we trust that our goal will have been met. Please consider making a donation to this fund so that we can continue to provide Christian education to families for whom the tuition cost is just not affordable. You will receive a charitable receipt for your donation. Great Wolf Lodge, 2018….It's that time of year again!
