The Cariboo Chilcotin Partners for Literacy’s second annual Family Fun Day at Bell-E-Acres was a great success.

Attendance was up this year at the event which was held on July 13.

Free transportation was provided with the use of Heartland Toyota’s courtesy van, so families without vehicles joined us this year.

Free entertainment included mini-golf, games, face painting, puppets, dress-up and crafts with free watermelon and freezies for all.

There were many draws for books and other items.

Volunteer Linda Purjue presented a new, interactive story with her large animal puppets to the delight of children and parents.

We give a hearty thank-you to our sponsors for this event:  Bell-E-Acres, Heartland Toyota and Save-On-Foods.

Thank you also to our volunteers who make this event possible.
