Subject: spitfire school auction
I live in a rural area west of Toronto (Canada). While
a local newspaper last night, there was an article about a
that was auctioning off a restored Spitfire. Apparently the
teacher and his students had been working on this car for a
and now the school is selling tickets to raise money. The
estimated that about 10,000 dollars had been spent on it -
was loaned by some other teachers out of their own pockets
until the car
is to be auctioned off.
I thought it was a good example of how young people can
LBC; of how a small town high school can raise money; and
also of how
dedicated teachers can get around funding cutbacks to raise
their school. Some of the local community clubs are
involved, and from
the article, it seems everyone is quite proud of this old
Spit and their
participation in this project.
Tickets are $5.00, and I just might buy one.
