At the end of the in-door program, the attendees, including the students, were served food and drinks.
During the evening hours, there were football and kickball games between the Hope Academy and our school. For the football game, our boys drew with the boys of Hope Academy, while for the kickball, our girls beat the girls of Hope Academy.
It was indeed a wonderful day for all.
