A beautiful day for a beautiful celebration

Another year done for Castlegar Mother Goose

Babies, tots and their adults kick back at Castlegar's Kinsmen Park

It was a lovely sunny day for the last session of the Mother Goose Reunion in Kinsmen Park on May 29, celebrating the end of the year. Conducted by the Columbia Basin Alliance for Literacy, the project’s premise is to foster early language development through song, rhymes and stories for parents and caregivers and their babies and toddlers.

Tamara Matthews, one of the instructors, explained that this is an eight-week project and yesterday’s reunion marked the bonus session in the park, which was done for the first time. She also emphasizes the importance of the partners that regularly host the Mother Goose Reunions, the Castlegar Primary School and the Castlegar & District Public Library.

The project will be back next September.
