Soccer Season was a Kick
Soccer season came to an end in early October with the annual parent kid game played between the students, and parents of Cooper Landing School. The soccer season was a great success thanks to the hard work of Coach Heather Harrison, Assistant Coach Aaron Duchene and the coaches from Moose Pass and Hope Schools.
The students from all three schools had a great time getting together to play a few games. The teams were split up by age groups and each team had students from each school on it. This gave the students opportunities to make new friends and have more fun. As is the tradition, the Cooper Landing soccer season ended with a parents vs. kids game. Fun was had by all and everyone is looking forward to another great season next year.
Library Sweepstakes Coming Soon
The Cooper Landing Community Library is holding its annual Sweepstakes fundraiser Nov. 5 starting at 7 p.m. at the Community Hall. There are 150 tickets sold with $7,500 in cash prizes given away during the course of the evening. One ticket entitles the holder to Hors d’oeuvres for two, a chance to win a cash prize, and a guaranteed fun night. Also a ticket for the Library Sweepstakes is a donation to a wonderful library, which is run by dedicated volunteers year round, and needs community support to continue offering its services.
Tommy Gossard will be Master of Ceremonies this year. Entertainment will be provided by Dean Birmley, who will be reciting Robert Service poems. Dean is the oldest resident of Cooper Landing and his recitation of Robert Service is a delight which one has to see to believe. This year there is some added fun to the evening as Gary Galbraith will be auctioning off the two doors which graced the library for 28 years. The doors were replaced this fall as part of a project to make the library more energy efficient, so this year’s ticket holders will have the bonus opportunity to walk away with a piece of history.
All tickets must be sold by Oct. 31 for this exciting event, don’t miss out on the fun; stop by the library or ask one of the volunteer librarians, and get your tickets soon.
