Oh Happy Day!!

It's been a happy day here at Casa Stitch Lines. Son Mark got great news in today's mail - he passed his big exam and is now officially a Registered Medical Lab Tech!! Yay! He is working at our local hospital and is very happy there for now...

And, not to be outdone, daughter Laura found out late last week that her former employer, The Casket Newspaper in Antigonish received several CCNA's - that's Canadian Community Newspaper Awards, and one of the awards was for one of her photos! These awards are for Canadian newspapers with smaller circulations. Her photo which was in the Spot News category, was taken at a Department of Transportation plow shed fire last January.

At the time, I told her I thought it was a great photo... I guess I'm not the only one who thought so...   :)

Congrats to The Casket for also winning Best Overall Newspaper (circulation 3,000-3,999) and also awards for Best Front Page and Best Editorial Page. I'd like to think that perhaps Laura played a small part in these as well...  :)

So we have a registered MLT and an award-winning Journalist... we couldn't be more proud!!



May today's success be the beginning of tomorrow's achievements...

Peace,
Linda

Congrats to both Mark and Laura. Wonder where Laura got her photographic instincts? Hmmm...it is a fabulous picture.

What wonderful news! Congratulations to all. No doubt Laura had good training on the use of her camera...and obviously inherited a great sense of colour and placement! Mark joins both of my "kids" at our local hospital, albeit in different departments!
Happy Easter to you and your family.
Kathy

Woo hoo! We mothers ache over their struggles so it's wonderful when we get to cheer for successes.

Who ever came up with the name The Casket?! "Did you see my picture in The Casket?" Geesh.
