The Staying Power of the Iconic Red Bag

Douglas Armour was on a mission.  He wanted to surprise his brother, who lives in Vancouver, with something special for his birthday.  A drive by Bayview Glen was all the inspiration he needed.  Douglas had an idea.  He remembered that his brother was extremely fond of his little red bag he received as a young child from the Bayview Glen Day camp.  (the bag is now officially a Preschool must have item). After his parents downsized from their Toronto home, Douglas says the red bag disappeared.  So he set his sights on finding his brother this cherished gift.  As it turned out, a phone call was all he needed.  Admissions Director Judy Maxwell was delighted to grant a birthday wish.  A little red bag was waiting for Douglas as he arrived at our school on a beautiful fall afternoon. His hope is to deliver the surprise in person, but if not, his soon to be 58 year old sibling will receive a package in the mail featuring a small red bag packed full of memories.
