Walshe rugby team hosts dinner and talent show

About the only thing that beats a great lasagna dinner is a great lasagna dinner with a talent show for desert.
That’s just what the F.P. Walshe Flyers girls rugby team is serving at F.P. Walshe school on Thursday, March 3.
The fund-raising dinner starts at 6 p.m. with the talent show at 7 p.m.
The dinner will be prepared by the girls with the help of F.P. Walshe foods teacher Blair Yanke.
The girls will also serve the dinner.
The girls rugby team is raising money for a trip to Ottawa from April 27 to May 3 on a YMCA Youth Exchanges program.
Students from Notre Dame school in Ottawa will be in Fort Macleod from April 3-10.
The Flyers are really into the trip, said Flyers coach Andrew Walmsley, who will be accompanying the team to Ottawa.
“They’re really excited about it,” Walmsley said. “We will play rugby in Ottawa and we’ll be seeing the famous Ottawa sights and museums.”
Other coaches going with the team are David Orr and Brittany Orr as well as team manager Cathy Gregory.
In 2006 an earlier Flyers girls rugby team travelled to Prince Edward Island on a YMCA Youth exchange trip.
YMCA Youth Exchanges Canada gives Canadian youth aged 12 to 17 a chance to discover new horizons in themselves and in their country.
The YMCA pays for travel costs with funding provided by the federal government. The Flyers are responsible for other costs.
The after-dinner talent show includes the Flyers girls rugby team doing a skit explaining rugby.
Some of the team members will also perform individually. Hannah Burbank will sing, Shannon Chisholm will do highland dancing, Eden Hoff will sing, and Carlee Prete will play piano.
Also in the line-up are Tel Sillito playing guitar, Sean Archibald doing a comedy act, and Katie and Hannah Bullock singing.
F.P. Walshe teacher Chris Schalk will play piano.
Former F.P. Walshe students Matthew Bullock will sing and play guitar, and Rebecca and Lindsey Lybbert will tap dance.
