We made it through orientation week! Now it's time to kick back, relax, and eat other people's food! Join us for an informal, no-pressure, social gathering. Bring the family (unless you don't want to) and a hearty dish to pass! 6:00 pm at the Eckhart Park shelter. Questions? Need a recipe idea? Contact Matt Voz.
Youth Initiative High School will begin the year requiring masks indoors for all those who are not being tested daily. If you are not registered to test daily by August 30, you will be required to wear a mask for the first trimester when the 7-day average of new daily cases is above 10 per 100,000 in Vernon County. Click below to learn more about the testing program and to register your preference of masking or testing.

Batman, big shot, when you gave the order
to grow up, then let me loose to wander
leeward, freely through the wild blue yonder
as you liked to say, or ditched me, rather,
in the gutter . . . well, I turned the corner.
Now I’ve scotched that “he was like a father
to me” rumour, sacked it, blown the cover
on that “he was like an elder brother”
story, let the cat out on that caper
with the married woman, how you took her
downtown on expenses in the motor.
I’m not playing ball boy any longer
Batman, now I’ve doffed that off-the-shoulder
Sherwood-Forest-green and scarlet number
for a pair of jeans and crew-neck jumper;
now I’m taller, harder, stronger, older.
Batman, it makes a marvellous picture:
you without a shadow, stewing over
chicken giblets in the pressure cooker,
next to nothing in the walk-in larder,
punching the palm of your hand all winter,
you baby, now I’m the real boy wonder.
