ond with 1156. Taking third was Bob Harrison with seven game wins and 1118 points. High hands went to Shirley Dietz and Margaret Weber and coming in last was Shirley Dietz with a one game win. Looks like Shirley is trying to set a new pattern here. Skunks were terrrrrible. Bob Harrison and Irene Kieffer with 68 points and Sharon Fotheringham and Margaret Weber with 70 points were lucky they weren't double skunked with measly scores like that. Talk about needing improvement (we will just leave it at that and see what happens next week). Other skunks included Lorne Kieffer with an 83, Art Albert 78, Don Grubb 90, Jim Goetz 84, Shirley Dietz 90, Earl Haskins 83 and Margaret Weber with two more skunks at 78 and 84.

Roots of Bruce... a Priceless Learning Experience! Roots of Bruce, an agri-education program that has been running for the past 17 years is definitely a hands on learning experience. Sacred Heart Mildmay was one of 18 schools from south Bruce and Grey to take part in this fabulous half day program for grade 5 and 6 students. This year 18 different commodity learning stations with an interesting variety of things ranging from cows and goats being milked to the ever popular pricey big combine were on display at the Walkerton

Agricultural Buildings on April 13th and 14th. Are students impressed with this learning experience? You bet! Here’s what some past attendees had to say: “ I have changed my attitude about my food and where it comes from. I am more thankful for the food I have, as I now know how much work goes into it and what a process it takes getting food to my plate.” - Jessica Batte, Formosa “Even though a lot of students live on farms, farming is now so specialized that you don't understand the other types of farming. It also helps students who do live in towns to better understand the different aspects
of farming. - Craig Meyer, Teeswater The community should be very proud of the many community volunteers who make this program possible. It really is hard to put a price on the learning experience students receive. They learn about farming, as well as healthy eating, farm safety and the importance of sustainable practises. It is hoped this program will have long term benefits to students and give them a recognition of the importance of how farmers support their community and how communities can support local farmers.
