A Black History Announcement:


Donovan Bailey is one of the greatest sprinters of all time. As someone

who held the world record for the 100 metres, and the title of World

Champion and Olympic Champion, it is not surprising that Track and Field

News named him “Athlete of the Decade” in the 100 metres, and that the

rest of us knew him as “The World’s Fastest Man.”

Canadians were proud when this Jamaican-born athlete dominated the

field at the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta, winning gold in the 100 metre

and the 4 x 100-metre relay. After retiring from competitive racing in 2001,

he began a successful career in the business world.


“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate

cannot drive out hate, only love can do that” Martin Luther King Jr.


Orchard Park remember to be respectful to yourself and others.

Have a Magical Monday!
