The Royal Canadian Legion Branch 129 Haliburton would like to thank the 130 students who participated in this year’s Remembrance Day Literary and Poster contests.
I would like to thank the teachers school administration staff and parents who encouraged their students to make the effort. Your interest and continued support is much needed and very much appreciated.
This year we had entries from all three schools Stuart Baker ES J.D. Hodgson ES and Haliburton Highlands SS.
Without our panel of judges there would be no competition therefore we wish to thank all our judges for a job well done.
