Town Hall

On Tuesday, we had our monthly Town Hall during which some of our young men were recognized for exemplifying 5R Character. Boys were applauded for being Responsible, Relentless and Resilient. In addition, we had a draw from all the Rs given out to boys who displayed 5R character this month. The winner of the draw was Lochlan D. and the prize was 10 VIP tickets to the Calgary Police Interpretive Centre. Next month’s prize will be tickets to a Calgary Roughnecks game.
