Styles and Smiles Charity Fashion Show: ‘In It to Win it’
by Doug Robinson
Simply said, we are “in it to win it.” Presented by Windham High School students and Team BellaDonna, the Styles and Smiles Charity Fashion Show, an afternoon pageantry, was presented to a near-capacity audience at Campbell High School. Decorated in pink, the message stated in the vestibule and entry to the CHS auditorium was stated loud and clear: we are “in it to win it.” “We are an evolving group of New England women and men united in a crusade against breast cancer. Team BellaDonna got its name from the Italian words ‘bella’ [beautiful] and ‘dona’ [woman]. Our efforts honor and support the beautiful lives that have been impacted by breast cancer.” Team BellaDonna got its start in 2000. In response to her daughter’s first diagnosis of breast cancer, founder Bobbi Bramante took part in her first Avon Breast Cancer walk. Three weeks after treatment ended for her second cancer bout, Donna joined her mom at the Avon Walk Boston, later serving as a keynote speaker for that event. Eight walks, dozens of team members, thousands of miles, and $250,000 later, Team BellaDonna is going strong and forging ahead! The 2011 team features three courageous breast cancer survivors. “Together, and through our numerous efforts, we crusade to help
women and their families get the support they need through breast cancer and beyond. In the U.S. alone, three million women and
men have been touched by breast cancer, many without adequate care. We believe every life diminished by this epidemic disease is one too many, and that everyone deserves the best possible care. Our goals include supporting cancer research, ensuring real- time help for those in need, and
opportunities for women to attain optimal wellness after breast cancer.” Youth

Sales of fly-fishing gear continued to show impressive gains, with 59.3 percent of anglers reporting they bought fly-fishing tackle in 2010. That was an increase of 4.1 percent over 2009. Flies were the most purchased type of fly-fishing gear, accounting for 60.9 percent of fly tackle transactions. There is a new book out to help us all with fly choices. The 24
Greatest Flies You Don’t Leave Home Without by Robert Sousa is full of details on habitat, where to find fish, and techniques. One chapter unlocks the mystery of why a fish refuses your fly, despite all your best efforts. This book is one of the best I have ever read on fishing with flies, as it has great pictures done on glossy paper and it is small enough to pack along with you. Get a copy at Husking Bee Books.com

Cancer survivor Peggy Nolan holds the rose given to her that signifies that she is a cancer survivor
A poster that hung in the lobby has handwritten messages from those who wish an end to cancer
poised as they presented the newest fashions from local stores. Adult models, student models, younger models, community leaders, community educators, models who are cancer survivors, and local dance troupes combined their talents to raise monies for cancer research. Event organizer Donna Bramante stated, “This event was made possible by the efforts and inspiration of so many wonderful individuals united to provide aid and hope for those impacted by breast cancer. Through extraordinary community- wide collaboration, so much was achieved along the journey to producing this event, educating young people, humanitarian aid, and consciousness, and knitting together disparate constituencies through the selflessness and empowerment of giving. Thank you all the beautiful souls and area organizations that contributed to today’s success.”
Plans Being Worked Out for Relocating Some Third-Graders
by Barbara O’Brien With the exception of the new high school, space constraints continue to plague the schools in Windham. In this economy, dealing with all the problems at once is not feasible; so school administrators are opting for a piecemeal solution. One of those solutions, albeit temporary, is to relocate some of the third-grade classes from Center School to Golden Brook School. Currently, Center School houses students in grades three through five, while Golden Brook is home to students in kindergarten through second grade. That will change next year, however, when three of the third-grade classes will take up space at Golden Brook. According to Golden Brook Principal Debra Armfield, schedules pertaining to the new third-graders moving in next September are falling into place. “They will have their own lunch period and they will have their own recess,” Armfield assured parents. These are two of the concerns that worried parents of students affected by the switch in school buildings.
Motors in Motion Lego Program Challenges Kids
by Robyn Hatch The Windham Recreation Department sponsored its Motors in Motion Lego program at the Windham Town Hall on Saturday, which offered kids ages 6–9 the opportunity to learn about simple machines and robotics using Legos. Focusing on science, technology, engineering, and math, this program challenged the kids to think creatively, solve problems, work as part of a team, and reinforce their skill sets while having lots of fun. Jim Harvey, M.Ed., and Nancy Lane, a 20-year teacher, were on site to help the kids with their Lego creations using motions and robotics. The pair believes this program will help kids achieve success in the 21st century.

School would be relocating to Golden Brook School, along with approximately 60 third-grade students. A survey that was recently conducted for parents whose children are affected by the change in location drew less than a 50-percent participation, Armfield said. Of those who responded, 29 percent said they wanted their children to attend third grade at Golden Brook School, while 54 percent said they wanted their third-graders to attend Windham Center School. Just over 17 percent of the respondents said they had no preference either way. “We will try to honor parents’ requests as to which school they prefer,” Armfield said. This is not a perfect solution, Armfield said, a thought echoed by Center School Principal Kori Becht. “It has created some logistic issues,” Armfield added, but, with some creative ideas from staff members, they will be worked out satisfactorily.
