SJA staff and students Happy Tree supporters
Staff at St. Joseph’s Academy in Lamaline took it upon themselves last year to donate to the less fortunate.
Normally the staff would exchange gifts among themselves but then decided other people could use the gifts during this special time of year even more.
Again this year the staff decided to donate to the Salvation Army-chcm-marystown Mall Happy Tree Project.
The staff invited students and community members to also join in helping make this project a success.
Volunteers included Theresa Dodge, Tracey Harnett, Margaret Martin, Stephanie Slaney, Katrina Lafosse, Elsie Fitzpatrick, Lucinda Dodge, Cindy Fitzpatrick, Bernice Cousins, Valene Stacey, Carm Hillier and Antonia Slaney.
St. Joseph’s Academy, Lamaline, Kindergarten and Grade One students display some of the gifts that were donated. (Front row, from left): Paige Boland, Mackenzie Hodge, Shelby Stacey and Emily Pretty. Back Row: Nicholas Hillier, Jake Loder, Coby King,...
