"Cowardice asks the question...is it safe? Expediency asks the question...is it politic? Vanity asks the question...is it popular? But conscience asks the question...is it right? And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular but one must take it because it is right." ~Dr. Martin Luther King

A Golden Jubilee

ST Joseph's School on Glass Drive, Aurora,started with four classrooms and last Saturday.celebrated its fiftieth anniversary, an elementary, French Immersion School with Library,a gymnasium, a band and several awards to its credit. a roll-call of principals,hundreds of class pictures and fifty years of striving.

Five hundred people attended and for several hours on a cold and blustery day, the place was hopping with happy, excited celebrants.

A video retrospect of significant aspects of the last fifty years of history was presented. We've come a long way, baby.

Being part of a community means lives touch. Joys and sorrows are shared. Tragedy endures and leaves its mark.

Fifty years produce a substantial roll-call of absent friends.

Which I cannot bear to speak about and no good could come of it anyway.
