Students with Mrs. Briganti, Mr. Simpson and Mrs. Chamberlain
The Grand Island High School DECA Club has been sorting food for the Grand Island Neighbors Foundation at Christmas time since the 1990's. Interact Advisor Laura Briganti began the tradition a few years ago with her students, and Mr. Robert Simpson and his Student Council students joined this year. According to DECA advisor Cheryl Chamberlain, "Bringing three service clubs together for the Grand Island community is wonderful!" In addition, donations filed in from the GIHS School Store - Casey's Corner, The Grand Island High School Dress Down Fund, and Student Council. Hank Kammerer from the Neighbors Foundation accepted the donations and was equally as happy for all of the assistance from the Grand Island High School students! The sorting was held at the Knights of Columbus on Tuesday, December 21st. 45 families were helped this year.

GISBA Sponsors Basketball Fundraiser - Nov. 2010
JT Tomkins photos - Click photos for larger view
The Grand Island School & Business Alliance hosted a fundraiser basketball game between the Buffalo Sabres Alumni and the GI schools faculty and staff on Tuesday, November 16th. The Sabres team featured Richie Dunn, Morris Titanic, Yuri Khmylev, Mike Boland, Ric Seiling, Derek Smith and Rob Ray. There were 20 players on the teacher/faculty squad, made up from many gym teachers and coaches, along with sport enthusiasts. The game was quite comical, in a Globetrotters kind of way. The two referees were over 7 feet tall and ended up being ringers, who came into the game for the Sabres in the last minutes to win the game. The proceeds of the game and raffles are to support GISBA activities including Corporate Bowl, Job Search and Shadow Day.
At a special assembly on November 10th, the Orchestra and Choir participated by performing patriotic selections. Alan Lee and Dan McMahon from the Charles N. DeGlopper Memorial VFW Post 9249, presented the five w's on the importance of remembering Veteran's day.
Charles Dunkle gave an overview on HFB and the service they provide veterans. Mr. Dunkle then did a question and answer period with Mr. Norman Hamister, a Navy See-Bee who served in WWII from 1942-1946. Mr. Hamister explained how he quit school to serve his country, the conditions he endured and how happy he was to see the younger generation interested in his story and the many others like his.
Approximately 120 ninth grade English students, under the direction or Mr. Tom Gorman, presented letters and a video montage to retired Colonel Jim Germain, who was forwarding them to the troops in Afghanistan. In both formats, students described what freedom means to them. After seeing the emotional reaction from the student body, faculty and staff, it was decided that it would be a worthwhile pursuit to mass produce the montage and distribute it to service personnel overseas. "Through the generosity of the Sheridan Drive and Galleria Best Buy stores, we were able to secure 300 DVD-Rs and are reproducing the video for shipment in time for the holiday season," Kristine Bajdas, assembly coordinator, said.
Colonel Timothy McCoy, Mission Support Group Commander at the Niagara Falls Air Reserve Base, did a presentation comparing schools in the United States and those in Central America.
To date the Island students have donated enough to send three World War II Veterans to Washington, DC on Veterans Day (expenses paid). Each flight ticket is $300.00. The day starts early in Buffalo and ends in Buffalo in the late afternoon or early evening the same day. For more information, see http://honorflightbuffalo.org/default.aspx

Soccer: Vikings bring unbeaten 15-0-1 mark into sectional play
By Tim Schmitt
The goals have been well-defined. First, Grand Island girls soccer coach Dave Bowman said his team wanted to capture the Niagara Frontier League title.
With all-state striker Jenna Raepple leading the offensive attack and unheralded junior Jodi Lee solidifying an already potent defensive corps, the Vikings did just that, marking the 10th finishing undefeated, a hurdle they cleared with a sterling 13-0-1 record.
Next up on the team's checklist, Bowman said, is to capture the Section VI Class A crown, a quest that begins today when the Vikings kick off the postseason by hosting Lake Shore in a prequarterfinal. The playoffs started on Monday, with a few qualifying games - Lew-Port captured one in Class A - but the playoffs begin in earnest today.
Bowman knows his team in heavily favored this afternoon and will be so through the Class A final on November 6 at Amherst High School, but he's not worried about his team's approach.
"They've had a small goal every step of the way and they've done a great job staying focused and accomplishing those goals," Bowman said. "We might be playing a lower-seeded team in the first round, but we need to go out and play our possession game and communicate the way we have, making our opportunities count."
While Raepple, Brooke DeMarco, Jeannie Taylor and goalie Stephanie Senn get many of the headlines, Bowman said Lee's emergence has helped his team become more well-rounded and deep.
"Jodi has stepped up and far exceeded my expectations," Bowman said. "She's just taken charge of our defense. And that's allowed me to use somebody like Taylor - who has a lot of all-around talent - and it lets me move her around the field. Jodi reads the game extremely well. And she's given me a comfort level back there."
The Vikings aren't the only local team with high hopes heading into the postseason. . .

Ten Grand Island students woke up bright and early on Sunday, October 17th to volunteer for a 5K race to honor longtime Town Boys and Girls Club director, Bob "BobKat" Nowak.

Race director and Grand Island resident Scott Henderson would like to thank the volunteers and runners for their continued generosity and hope that this event continues to grow each year.
