“That’s what I consider true generosity. You give your all, and yet you always feel as if it costs you nothing.”
 –Simone de Beauvoir

Balmoral Hall Parent Association (BHPA) would like to thank the Bingo Committee for putting on our first virtual BHPA event. Grade Party Ambassadors Co-Liaisons, turned Bingo organizers, Shauna Klassen & Lasha Orzechowski coordinated all of our supplies and treats. Host André Kriening brought his talents to our Zoom “meeting” and made an ordinary Friday night fun and nostalgic. Production Manager and DJ Annika Kriening did a great job supporting the host. Chair Jenny-Lou Ryan led the committee and doubled as our “Think Fast” Host, bringing added laughs and increasing the connection between the BHPA Executive & Council and the BH community. We really appreciate everyone’s efforts. A great time was had by all!
Shauna is Payton’s Mom (Grade 12), Lasha is Kya’s Mom (Grade 5), André is Annika’s Dad (Grade 9), and Jenny-Lou is the mother of Stephanie (Grade 8) and Julia (Grade 12).
Winners of the draw for 10 restaurant gift cards were: Jeff Basarab, Marianne Crewson, Louise Frost, Sean Gatin, Jason Jhooty, Wanda Johnson, Dominic Litwin, Beth Millard-Hales, Sheila Nash, and Leanne Williams.
A few comments from the evening:

  • “Super fun event! Thank you for planning. It inspired us to get Kinsmen Jackpot Bingo cards.” –Erin Gording

  • “This was so well done! So fun! Thanks for organizing!” –Candy Wong

This event was designed to promote good mental health and is part of our ongoing commitment to the school to connect families in our community with the BHPA, even from afar.
We are so lucky to have such great volunteers at Balmoral Hall School! Thank you, all!
