NOT SO DRY GRAD

Parents of Grade 7 students at Chemainus Elementary Community School weren't about
to let a little thing like a labour dispute get in the way of a good party to celebrate their
kids' graduation. With the teachers' lockout in full force in late June, several parents
decided it would be a good idea to hold a celebration at Fuller Lake Park since the school
wouldn't be available. The students loved the idea and enjoyed swimming in the lake,
playing games and enjoying hot dogs and party food. It was a rainy and cool day but
everyone had a great time. Congratulations kids. . . see you at Chemainus Secondary
School in a few days! (Photo by Warren Goulding)
