Shown above is Peggy Tomashewski, her 7 dwarfs and the wicked witch. They were awarded first prize for their costuming and enthusiasm. Here is Darrell Hubbell as Robin Hood and his band of merry men. Mrs. Pat Maxsonﬁmrn Hurley and Norman Day were in charge of the summer program and were assisted by teenage councillors. The whole project was enthusiastically supported by both mothers and children during the summer holidays. Above is "Rumplestiltskin" Laurie Howe. ******* NOTES OF INTEREST: Archeologists have found some pieces of wood they believe may have come from Noah's Ark. The wood now being examined at research centers in the United States, France and Turkey is believed to be hand- hewn timber about 4,000 years old. The archeologists believe the ark may be lying beneath a glacier at the bottom of a lake on the 17,000 foot mountain. They plan to begin digging through the ice for it next summer. A fortress dating back to the end of the period of the First Temple (5th B.C.) was discovered by archeologists in Arab Jerusalem. Many of the trees on the grounds of Government House in Ottawa have been planted by visiting heads of state and royalty.
