Christian school to host special evening


By Treena Mielke

Rimbey Christian School is serving up a great menu of events on Sept. 29 including sports, music, drama, future planning advice, a book fair, and, to top it all off, delectable ice cream.

The activities kick off at 3:45 p.m. with a soccer game between Rimbey Christian School and Rocky Christian School that is sure to be an exciting match.

The excitement will continue later in evening with an ice cream social/fall drive kickoff held at the Rimbey Community Centre beginning at 7 p.m.

The Doll Sisters, a musical duo of roots musicians from Rocky Mountain House, will highlight the evening.

The girls, who have been compared to the Dixie Chicks, specialize in sweet bluegrass, folk, Celtic, Appalachian and cowboy tunes. They also play a variety of instruments include guitar, banjo, bodhran, mando, mouth organ, tin whistle, cello and dobro.

Another highlight of the evening will be a short presentation by the junior high drama students.

The evening’s agenda will also include a presentation by Ron Knol of Christian Stewardship Services in Edmonton who will speak on the importance of estate planning and planned giving.

Following Knol’s presentation, a representative from the fundraising committee will talk about the importance of donations to the school to help cover such expenses as general operating and transportation and provide tuition relief.

Maryan Weenink from the school explained Rimbey Christian School is accredited, but does not receive full government funding.

“To compensate, tuition fees are charged and fundraising events are held to offset these fees,” she said.

Prior to the Doll Sisters’ performance, a short intermission will be held when ice cream complete with a variety of delectable toppings will be served.

The audience is invited to browse the book fair during the evening.
