The Beauty of Generosity
“THANK YOU” seems so inadequate to express the depth of our gratitude for the generous giving James Cameron School received on Saturday evening! Over $40,000 was raised at our first Gala. There are many who deserve our thanks, and so it is with a heart full of gratitude that I pen this expression of deep thanks to everyone who helped make our Gala the roaring success that it was.To those who contributed talent, to those who contributed donations and time or money thank you! Your generosity is truly beautiful. To everyone who attended the Gala, thank you! For those of you that could not attend I have included a link to a video of our guest speaker, Greg Epp. Greg attended JCS in the 90s and gave an inspiring speech. Warm regards, Penny Shepherd-Hill, Principal https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U8HMF639UiU
