would you do a little favour?


Saucy's little niece Moira goes to a very small rural school in southern Ontario. It's sad, but the school will be closing at the end of June. It's really a very tiny little school and of course the decision was made due to budgeting and such, but the nice small atmosphere of the school has made The Warden and The Inmate very happy to send their children there.

The kids in Moira's class are doing a little project to commemorate the last year of Maidstone Central School. They are collecting post cards from as many places around the globe as possible.

Would you mind, Dear Reader, in this busy holiday season - if you are headed to the post office anyway - would you send Moira and her class a little post card and tell her where you are from? It's a marvelous little geography project... and it will be a nice sendoff for one of the last, sweet country schools Saucy knows of.

Maidstone Central School
1501 Lakeshore Road #203
Maidstone, Ontario CANADA
N0R 1K0

And just to sweeten the incentive, Saucy has asked the classroom teacher to set aside any postcards that arrive with the message "Hello to Miss Moira and friends via Saucy's Sprinkles" and at the end of the project, the class will draw a postcard and the lucky sender will receive one of Saucy's handmade charm bracelets. She'll even customize it for you if she can... so what are you waiting for?

Such a great idea! As a teacher with a love of small schools, it's sad to hear this little country school is closing. My postcard is ready to send!

So sad to see this little school go... it's not far from me at all! And even though I'm in the area, I will send them a final farewell via postcard...
