Thanks to Margaret Grafenstein for making Chess Club a great success!

Thank you Margaret Grafenstein, a Little Canada Para and parent volunteer who decided to start a chess Club in our school.  Margaret organized it, advertised it and wrote grant after grant to buy Chess boards, pieces, timers and books. She's at every club meeting, teaching the children chess. She made sure the children had the chance to compete in tournaments and was onsite supporting them every time. She had a great idea and ran with it. We are so lucky to have Margaret as part of our Little Canada Family.
