Shifting gears to tomorrow, it's Basket Raffle Bash time! We have something for everyone with baskets to raffle off, music, kickball, food, and more! The fun starts at 4:30 and ends at 7:30 out behind the school, and with this beautiful weather and the fun that Marla Wanner and Shannon Ring have set up for you, you won't want to miss it! I look forward to seeing you all at the Basket Raffle Bash tomorrow evening!
I hope you enjoy this coming weekend with your favorite people making memories! When we search for peace, it's not going to be around us (we live in a whirlwind) - it's within us. Take a moment to slow yourself down and find the magic in each moment. Have a wonderful weekend, Norton Creek!
