60plus BBQ Fun at Forder
Students and staff welcomed nearly 200 guests on Friday, May 13, for the annual 60plus BBQ co-sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of South County. Several Kiwanis members helped barbecue hamburgers and presented the MO-ARK District Earl Collins Scholarship to Oakville High senior Hannah Hoffmeister. Forder Strings students entertained the group with several upbeat tunes, followed by a craft session where fifth graders joined the guests to create paper cardinals. Lots of fun and smiles. Thanks to all who helped make the event a huge success! Click here to view slideshow.
