Thursday, Sept. 12th was a beautiful evening for a welcome back outdoor BBQ for the St. Boniface School Panther families.  Thank you to the Maryhill Knights of Columbus for hosting this event. 

This is the 4th year this event is held to celebrate the start of another school year and families enjoyed the meeting of the new teachers, renewing friendships with the previous staff and the hospitality of the Maryhill Knights of Columbus.  The BBQ took place at the side of the school from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m.

The students had time to introduce their families to their teachers and to see their classrooms before enjoying the beautiful weather and the outdoor BBQ. There were hot dogs and hamburgers with all the fixings along with bags of chips, lemonade and water.  Although the lines up were large the many students, parents and grandparents received their food quickly.

Groups of families line up for food served up by the Maryhill Knights of Columbus.
