Mrs. Black's Party Press Release
Date: December 10, 2006
From: Margaret Black -- Harriett Todd P.S.
Location: Orillia, Ontario, CANADA!
Re: "FINALE IN FLORIDA"BEACH PARTY!"
Chief Operations Officer Liz Condie, of Operation Migration, isn't
the only one preparing for the cranes' arrival in Dunnellon, Florida.
Preparations are in full swing up in Canada, as well. Due to scheduling
constraints, our class party has to be held on either a Monday or a
Friday. We are predicting that the cranes will probably hit Dunellon
in time for a party this coming Friday! (You can view
details of our party
At our party, the Principal of Harriett Todd P.S. will be presenting "winner
medals" to each of the eighteen paper mache cranes we made, to
represent the members of the actual flock. Each of the students in
my class will also receive a winner medal from the principal. Then,
I will be presenting Liz Condie, of Operation Migration, with the "Hardest
Working Woman in Migration" medal, Chris Danilko, of Operation
Migration, with the "Jack of all Trades/Juggler Extraordinaire" medal
and the Operation Migration Field Team with the "Patience and
Perseverance" medal. Paper mache crane #602 will accept Operation
Migration's medals, on their behalf. Last, but definitely not least,
students Amy and Tallon will present Jane Duden, of Journey
North, with the "Whooping Crane Central Journalist of the Year" medal.
I will accept Jane's medal, on her behalf.
The kids and I will try to phone Chris, Liz and Jane from the party.
If they aren't available, we will just hoot and holler, into
their answering machines, and then hang up!
