Title: Celebrate DHS Girls Basketball

Time: 7:30PM to 9:30PM

Description: Didsbury is so proud of our Senior High Girls Basketball team, winners of the South Central Zone Championship last weekend. They are now in La Crete to compete in the 2A Girls Basketball Provincial Championships! After the girls won Zones, it was obvious that some funds had to be raised to help out with the cost of travelling to such a remote location. The bus trip, along with the driver's expenses, was expected to cost $6000. A GoFundMe page was set up on Monday morning, and $7,730 was raised by residents on that page. In addition, some residents, family, and friends showed up at the school with cash donations! And the community wants to celebrate! On Monday, March 18th at 7:30 pm, everyone is invited to a celebration at the high school. Each team member and their coaches will be introduced to the fans. Greetings will come from the Town, County and School Division. There will be coffee and juice and, of course, the cutting of the celebratory cake! The Town of Didsbury also gave each girl an emblazoned sports bag and water bottle to take with them to La Crete. This is only the second time ever that a girls team has qualified for provincials, and we couldn't be more proud. Thanks to all the volunteers and sponsors who are making this community celebration possible.
