Cherokee Primary held a mini-fair and fun day on October 26. Parents and friends all pitched in to help by preparing casseroles and sweets to sell. They raised $1,150 for the school. These funds will be used for new playground equipment. The P.T.A. would like to thank all those who donated and supported them.
Visitors came from other settlements to join in the fun and the older children enjoyed themselves swimming and sailing in the small Opti, and the larger Laser, sail boats. Cherokee folks love having a day out at the beach and long dock. It is a chance to visit with their neighbours and the little ones never tire of snorkeling by the bridge to find hidden treasures.
While the second-home owners and ‘snowbird’ visitors are beginning to feel the bight of winter cold and wind, we should all be thankful we live in paradise. The tide was up and the temperature a warm eighty-five degrees with a light breeze; one of those perfect days.
