Back by popular demand, Silver Star Rotary hosted the Back to School BBQ at Mission Hill Elementary on Thursday September 16. Most of the 330 students, their families and the schooll's 44 staff came out as over 500 meals were served. While in the queue, students and their families were asked by the repsective home room teahers to update their contact information for the new school year, making efficient use of the wait time.
The school, located on 36 Street has an amazing view of the valley and serivces several families new to Canada. Everyone seemed to appreciate the free food and the spirit of community. The event if put on by the members of the Silver Star Rotary Club of which I am a member. We really had a wonderful afternoon flipping burgers and I was surprised to see the burgeoning popularity of veggie burgers; some chose the veggie burger for religious reasons, while others seemed to select it for health reasons. Whatever the motivation, livestock operators take note!
