Our Port Cares Ontario Early Years Centre held the The Port Colborne and Wainfleet Family Literacy Event Day “Building with our Future Words” on February 6th, 2016. Over 64 families including 118 children attended the event at the Vale Centre.
Everyone had a wonderful time playing and enjoying the many activities including face-painting, arts and crafts and of course free books provided by Port Cares. Entertainer Dez Sargeant captivated the children with her story telling and Therapy Tails Ontario enthralled the kids with their therapy dogs. Thank you to all of the sponsors and volunteers for making this event possible.
