Delia Senior News
The Delia School and the Delia Elks served up an amazing Canada 150 Community Breakfast at the Delia Community Centre on Thursday morning, September 7. A large crowd of proud Delia Canadians turned out all dressed in red and white in honor of our great country. The school children were all in attendance, which made it a special time as they had a program after breakfast. The highlight of the program- I thoughtwas when this year’s graduating class joined the new kindergarten class on stage. So nice to see a large kindergarten class this year – looks well for the future of our school. After the program, everyone went outdoors where a group photo was taken of community residents standing on a large maple leaf painted on the street. Jill Clayholt was the photographer and as always, did a fantastic job. Many kudos to the Delia School and Delia Elks for taking on such a huge project.
