Honoured

A large crowd of Sylvan Lake’s Grade 12 students attended the 18th annual Bibles for Grads luncheon

A large crowd of Sylvan Lake’s Grade 12 students attended the 18th annual Bibles for Grads luncheon last Thursday at the community centre.

The event is organized by local churches as an opportunity to present each of the students with a Bible personally monogramed with their name. They enjoy a turkey dinner, entertainment and win door prizes donated by local businesses.

Student receiving Bibles were from École H. J. Cody High School, École Secondaire Notre Dame High School in Red Deer, Lighthouse Christian Academy, Sylvan Lake Career High School as well as home schooled students.
