PRESCOTT, Ont. – Kriska Transportation stepped in to help make two Boundary Street Public School staff members’ retirement memorable.
After 30 years of teaching at various schools throughout Ontario, Sharon de Vries retired from Boundary and her split grade one and two class in her hometown. Fran Stefura also retired this spring after 12 years as Boundary’s office administrator.
Stefura and de Vries made their voyage from the school to a retirement due at the Prescott Golf Course via Kriska tractor-trailer, decorated in signs and posters the students had made.
Kriska driver, Rock Allen (the students know him as Rocky), picked up Stefura’s husband, Mike, and de Vries’ husband, Klaas, as part of the retirement surprise the Boundary teachers had put together for the retirees.
Allen, who has been with the Kriska Kids program since its inception, four years ago, was only too happy to help out.
