911 Dodgeball supports Greentree class trips
Grade 5 students at Greentree School and members of Drumheller’s Emergency Services are getting ready to dodge, duck, dip, dive and …dodge.
Come Thursday, April 28, the Grade 5s will be taking on the RCMP, members of Fire Department, EMS, and commercial vehicle enforcement in a no holds barred dodgeball match. It is a lot of fun and also a great fundraiser. Eric, left, and Jack Doucette are going head to head in the 911 Dodgeball match to raise funds for the Grade 5 and 6 Greentree School classes yearend school trip.
“Every year the kids go on an end of year class trip,” explains Constable Eric Doucette. “We do it as fundraiser.”
This year the Grade 5 class is going to the Inglewood Bird Sanctuary and the Grade 6 class is going to Telus Spark.
The game is between 1:15 and 3:15 p.m., and students wishing to come watch can make a donation. Doucette adds the members of the 911 Dodgeball team that participate, typically also donate to offset the costs of the trip. Parents and well-wishers are welcome to come and support the cause.
