The students of Burlington Christian Academy received a special education this morning (Jan. 10, 2010) when Sergeant Steve Gardiner and Warrant Officer Ed Sculthorpe showed up to inform and thank the kids.
Recently the students of BCA raised approximately $1000.00 for the Canadian Troops taking part in the Afghan mission. That money was converted into Tim Hortons cash cards and distributed among the men and women of our forces. As most Canadians know Tim Hortons is like gold to the average Canuck making this charitable gesture mean that much more.
Sgt. Gardiner and Warrant Officer Sculthorpe displayed pictures of the Tim’s cards in the hands of the troops and relayed how much this sort of thing meant to the troops fighting daily battles.
CTS News was also on hand to cover the event. We’ll keep you posted on broadcast times for the news piece and where to catch it.
All told the presentation took an hour with the senior grades, 6, 7 and 8, getting a photo opportunity with the two members of the Canadian Armed Forces.
Our thanks go out to the students of the Burlington Christian Academy for their kind gesture and in turn to Steve and Ed for letting the kids know how important their role is in keeping the troops spirits high. Keep up the good works guys.
