Fortune smiled on the Remembrance Walk on Saturday, February 4 as the clouds parted and the sun shone on the 20th annual celebration of this event that brings together the students, staff and community of the Charter Oak District.
A Cloudy Beginning
Despite rain and drizzle leading up to Saturday and forecasts of heavy storms to come, what began as a foggy, gray morning turned into a beautiful day. This year’s walk brought together many familiar faces from teachers, staff, administrators, and school board members who regularly attend the Remembrance Walk. A charming surprise arrived in the shape of a large group of approximately 50 students from Cedargrove who elected to participate in this year’s walk. Overall, Remembrance Walk 2017 was a great success and raised $7,909 for scholarships.
