March 25 Board

Although I've been admonished that ALL Board meetings are important, I feel a palpable tension with regard to the one coming up on Tuesday. For the communities of Woodcroft and Ritchie, March 25 is, no doubt, a date of great anxiety.

You can see the agenda items here:

If you are planning to attend, the meeting starts at 6 PM.

In an unprecedented show of community dedication, we have received an offer from Mr. Reg Appleyard of the Brentwood Homes in support of Woodcroft School. He has offered to help boost enrolment of the school and pay $5000 for every student under the September target of 110 students to a maximum of $100,000. This is truly remarkable.

I've said it before: there are amazing people out there!
