So get to it Blazers.  Make a small change to improve the environment! </li></ul><ul><li>Members of our cross country team travelled to Moonstone yesterday for the county finals. The team represented Birchview well and should be proud of their efforts.  Honorable mention goes to Meghan H. who finished an impressive 7th place out of 126 runners!  Great job Birchview!  Thanks for a great season.</li></ul><ul><li><strong>HAUNTED HOUSE!</strong><strong>  </strong>The Wasaga Beach Youth Centre is holding its 7<sup>th</sup> Annual Haunted House and they would like to invite you to come, if you dare!  This years' Haunted House is taking place on Saturday, October 21<sup>st</sup> with two showings, 2 to 4pm and 5 to 6pm.  This is a free event but a donation for the Youth Centre or a non-perishable food item for the food bank is appreciated.   All of the terrifying fun happens THIS Saturday at the Wasaga Beach Youth Centre, at the corner of 39<sup>th</sup> Street and Mosley Street.

All most all those clothes could be reused or recycled. How you ask? Well, if the clothing has holes they can be repaired or turned into rags. Or if they don't fit you can donate them.  So the next time you are cleaning out your closet, think twice before throwing anything away.  Good luck on tomorrow's challenge! </li></ul><ul><li>The intermediate boys' volleyball practice that was scheduled for today after school is cancelled because of continued construction taking place in the gym.
