Fri­day, May 13, 2016 was a spe­cial day for our fam­ily as our youngest grand­son, Caden Leon­hardt grad­u­ated from Ecole Cam­rose Com­pos­ite High School. Caden is the son of Gor­don Leon­hardt and Cheryl Leon­hardt and brother of Michael, Cur­tis and Court­ney. Ron and Les­lie and I and Lynn and Clint Hem­ming at­tended the grad cer­e­monies at the Cam­rose Re­gional Ex­hi­bi­tion where 164 grad­u­ates re­ceived their diplo­mas. The theme was “The World Awaits”. A fam­ily sup­per for 22 fam­ily mem­bers was held at the Ra­mada Ho­tel fol­low­ing the cer­e­monies. Best wishes for all your fu­ture plans, Caden. We only have one grand­child yet to grad­u­ate in two more years. Time slips away.
