St. Emily School would like to thank its amazing staff for its contribution to the Ruiters Fundraiser with 30 dozen baked goods for the bake sale. As we know, the Ruiters recently had a devastating fire at their farm and the St Emily community has responded to the call in a big way. The St. Emily school community would also like to make a special mention of Cassie More who contributed 8 dozen cookies. Cassie is a young lady impacted by FASD and currently has a Co-op placement at C'est Tout Bakery in Smiths Falls and a member of the Grenville 4H Baking Club. When she heard the Ruiter family were having this bake sale, she wanted to help them and got in touch with St. Emily. St. Emily School was thrilled to pass her cookies along for her.My other daughter, Skylar, was also in the Royal Winter Fair this weekend competing against the top 100 competitors in the province. In the first half of the competition, Sky did her best showing of the year maintaining composure and maturity despite an unexpected development. In the second half of the competition, Sky finished second in the semifinals and ended up being one of the 18 finalists. To accomplish this so early in her career is absolutely mind-boggling. Her local club also communicated that Sky set the alltime record for them in fundraising. Thank you to all for making this dream possible.
