In spite of the snowy and blustery weather, Crowsnest Pass families came out to participate in a wonderful Family Literacy Fair. The fair involved over 40 agencies from the community and each one set up a display booth at M D Machernan. There were also activities for parents and children to do together including cooking and dance demonstration classes. Student tutors were on hand to face paint and generally assist with the day’s events.
This event really highlighted the many activities for families in Crowsnest Pass and was an excellent opportunity for community agencies to network with each other.
The Legacy Library was presented to Crowsnest Pass Literacy and the Parent Link Centre in front of a large group of board and staff from both agencies. The books will be divided amongst the two organizations.
Thanks to everyone involved in this visit.
