SACKVILLE, N.B. – Anyone with a desire to see someone locked up – perhaps local politicians or the university president – is in luck.
This Saturday, Oct. 5, TRHS’s Operation Beautification group will incarcerate Tantramar MLA Mike Olscamp, MLA Bernard LeBlanc and Mount Allison president Robert Campbell, along with other suspects who will be locked up for “good” in the TRHS slammer.
The “good”, in this case, is to raise money for capital projects to improve the interior and exterior of TRHS. This is the first project for the Operation Beautification committee and the funds will be used for much-needed improvements such as signage, painting and landscaping.
“Our students and teachers deserve a comfortable, well-maintained space where they can learn and work,” says committee chair Jo-Anne Simmons. “Most of all, this beautification project will bring people together in good spirit for a worthwhile cause.”
“We here at TRHS are truly appreciative for the initiatives of this committee. It’s been a long time since the exterior and interior have been upgraded and we look so forward to each stage of this ongoing beautification project to our school,” says principal Susan Lafford.
The fun will begin 12:30 p.m. at the Titans football game at TRHS. Inmates will be “arrested” and detained at the field, where they will call on friends and family to pay their bail. The bail will be donated to the project, and the inmates will be released on good behavior.
The Operation Beautification committee is a newly-formed group comprised of TRHS family. The committee’s goal is to create an environment that facilitates learning through aesthetically-pleasing surroundings for teachers and students.
