Mr. Gerald Panio, beloved former teacher of Crawford Bay School, and long time member of the Kootenay Lake Lions Club, visited me last October with an interesting proposition. He suggested a Pin Design competition on behalf of the Club for their 40th anniversary. Apparently it was a Crawford Bay student who designed their current pin and they wished to continue the tradition. The 40th anniversary theme was to be a local one, showing Crawford Bay’s geography and history. Ms Lanaway's artists jumped to the occasion and submitted drawings. Members of the Kootenay Lake Lions Club, including President Doug Anderson, visited the school today to congratulate Gr. 6 student Georgia Shuel for having drawn the winning design. Special kudos were also given to runner up Gr. 7 student Avery Pitt. We are so thrilled to have the talents of our students recognized! Thank you Mr. Panio and the Kootenay Lake Lions Club.
