The BCS PTO has announced they are sponsoring a pie throwing prize to some lucky winner of a ticket to this years after prom party. The tickets are now on sale at $1 a try or 5 tries for $3. Each ticket holder will have the choice of five buckets, each bucket containing the name of a local individual. The winner will try to throw a pie in that persons face. The winner will have their choice of Bolton Supervisor Zandy Gabriels, School Superintendent Ray Ciccarelli, Mr. Roca, Mr. McGurl or newly appointed principal, Mr. Switzer.
Sounds like a great way to have some fun and help fund the After Prom party. The event will be held at Adventure Racing with an all night full of activities and drawing of prizes. Help support the Class of 2009. See any junior classman or PTO officer for pie tickets.

In the past year, the Health Committee assisted 29 families with 57 children.
Noee, a 2nd grader in Lake George School and her 2-year-old brother Cooper Nadler of Lake George, were the big winners of the $10,000 first prize. Their parents plan to establish a college fund for the children. The balance of $5,000 is retained by the church to help with repairs and upkeep of the church buildings and grounds.
This is the seventh year the Church of St. Sacrement sponsored the lottery. Only 200 tickets are sold during July and August. Tickets are $100 each. Sometimes groups of people pool funds to purchase tickets, such as the seven employees of House of Scotts were winners in 2005.
