Ap­pre­ci­a­tion for Apex

Isis Town and Country - - OPINION -

ON BE­HALF of the chil­dren, fam­i­lies, man­age­ment com­mit­tee and staff at C&K Isis Com­mu­nity Preschool & Kinder­garten, I would like to ex­press my ap­pre­ci­a­tion to the Apex Club of Childers. Apex have been ac­tive sup­port­ers of our kindy since the be­gin­ning when they helped es­tab­lish Isis Pub­lic Kinder­garten in the early 1960s, and then again in 1965 when they helped to move and im­prove the cur­rent kindy build­ing. Apex mem­bers have sup­ported us with a va­ri­ety of fundrais­ers over the years, lend­ing re­sources and man­power to set up, cook bar­be­cues, run the bar, pack up, etc. They have also made sev­eral gen­er­ous do­na­tions over the years, with these do­na­tions used to buy books and other re­sources for our kindy. Last week, as the Apex Club of Childers came to an end, we were once again touched by their gen­eros­ity as they pre­sented us with a cheque for $1000. Com­mu­nity or­gan­i­sa­tions such as ours rely heav­ily on the gen­eros­ity of lo­cal clubs and groups and en­joy the feel­ing of “work­ing to­gether” that comes from tak­ing part in lo­cal events with these clubs and groups. With such a strong his­tory in Childers it is sad to see Apex un­able to con­tinue, but it seems to be a sign of the times (with more fam­i­lies hav­ing both adults work­ing, run­ning own businesses or one par­ent work­ing away; it is a jug­gling act to find time for work, fam­ily and out­side com­mit­ments). We wish the mem­bers of Apex all the very best and once again thank them for their con­tin­ued and gen­er­ous sup­port of our kindy.
