Valentines at St. Mary’s

St. Mary of the Lake Catholic School in Slave Lake celebrated Valentine’s Day with a ‘cake walk’ and sock hop.
A cake walk is like lottery musical chairs only instead of chairs there are numbers on the ground. When the music stops everyone stands on a number. A number is drawn from a hat. The person standing on the number wins a cake. There were 30 cakes to win.
Both the ‘cake walk’ and sock hop were fundraisers for stations of the cross tableau (models representing a scene).
