AB Greenwell School hosts fun fall fair

AB Greenwell School's fall fair was a success drawing in a large crowd and making approximately $1,000 for the school.

On Thursday evening, Nov. 15, A.B. Greenwell Elementary School in Youbou was the place to be for kids and families.

The school held their annual Fall Fun Fair. Along with the local residents in attendance, many families drove in from Lake Cowichan and a number of graduated students returned to participate and help with the face painting station at the night’s events.

The school’s gym held most of the activities, including a bouncy castle, a fishing game, and the most popular event — the cake walk. Upstairs, there was bingo, face painting, and book-give-away.

Members of the Lake Cowichan Secondary School’s Leadership Club helped run the games.The ABG Parent’s Advisory Council ran the busy concession.

Jann Drake, the school principal, noted the “great turnout.” The fundraiser amassed  approximately $1,000, and all of the proceeds will go back to the school. The money raised will be used for the school in a variety of ways such as special equipment, projects within the school and field trips.
