Great little readers!

RCMP Staff Sgt Kurt Grabinsky (right) and Const. Bern ie Gallon pose with the Grade 1-3 kids from Columbia Park Elementary's Read With Me and the RCMP program who received certificates for their accomplishments as young readers on Thursday morning, June 12. Const. Gary McLaughlin (not shown) has been doing this program for six years and is justifiably proud of the kids. "During the school year they receive certificates and at the year end assembly, those that receive COMMISSIONER rank get a red serge visit from the Detachment Commander as well as a ride to school from an RCMP Member," he told The Current. "...t his year Columbia Park students collectively read 7500 books and 24 students reached the Commissioner Rank." Way to go boys and girls! David F. Rooney photo
