SPEECH ARTS ~ Alisdair Wins A Scholarship!
I was out at choir practice tonight. While I was gone, Alisdair got an exciting phone call. Cathy Richardson, one of the ladies on the "Battlefords Kiwanis Music Festival" board telephoned with some very good news! He won some kind of scholarship for his Speech Arts performances!
When I got home, I called back for more details. Mrs. Richardson didn't have the list in front of her, so she wasn't sure exactly what the prize was, (or what it was for), but she said Alisdair would have his name on a plaque and would be receiving a cheque.
In order to receive his prize, we need to attend the Gala Concert at 7 PM on Friday, April 15th at Third Avenue United Church in North Battleford. There is a $5 charge for everyone who attends (except all prize winners get in free). After the gala concert (where selected people perform their pieces once again) Alisdair will be called to the stage to accept his prize.
He doesn't have to perform any of his pieces, but it's so encouraging to be singled out for recognition. At this rate, I'm sure he'll be willing to participate again next year!
Blessings abound ... and surprises continue to pop out from behind the corner every now and again... Not too shabby for a first time performer. Good job, Alisdair!!
