The Prairie C.O.W. spent October 30th and 31st in Swan Hills. The visit coincided with the official opening of the brand new Parent Link Centre in Swan Hills. The legacy library was presented to the Parent Link Director, who is excited to be able to use them in her programming. Members of the local School Board and Aspen Health Region were also in attendance at the lunchtime presentation.
Parents in this community had to bundle their children up against the first real blast of winter in order to take advantage of the activities offered by the C.O.W. bus. The bus parked at the Library for a Halloween Pajama Party. Many families came out and enjoyed spooky stories in the Library and a tour of the centres on the bus. The bus also parked at the Keyano Centre on the morning of the regular Tumble Tots group. Families came out to the bus either on their way into or out of the play group.
Many thanks to the Swan Hills FCSS for arranging a memorable of the C.O.W. bus to your community.
