Sylvan Meadows Adventist School Kindergarten to Grade 4 students spent Feb. 27 in Sylvan Lake.

They enjoyed a tour of the town office where students met the staff. They were delighted to meet the mayor whom they grilled with several tough questions while they sat in the council chairs, talked into the microphones and pushed the “That was easy” button. They were thrilled that they received two buttons-one “Urgent Care” and one for the centennial celebration of Sylvan Lake.

At the library they wanted to buy all the books that were being sold for a “donation”, drank hot chocolate and enjoyed looking through a great selection of children’s books.

At the Sylvan Lake Veterinary Clinic they were amazed at the collection of “findings” from animal stomachs and the x-ray of a dog pregnant with eleven puppies!

Each tour generated new enthusiasm for the facility and a greater understanding of the workings of some of the town’s community services.
