School colours

Newton Gillmor dyes Dan Gillmor’s beard yellow, red, and black on March 28 (the day before Good Friday) at St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Academy. Dan is the acting principal at St. Francis. Early in Lent (the 40 days leading up to Easter), Mr. Gillmor (as Dan is known at the school) agreed to dye his beard if the school raised a certain amount of money. If the school raised $150, he would dye it a solid bright red. At $300, Falcon gold would be added. At $450, black would be added to complete the school colours. The school raised $475, so Dan will have a tri-coloured beard for the next six weeks or so.
