THUNDER BAY – Bronson had a great day. The Labradoodle mascot at the Lake Superior Art Gallery enjoyed Friday’s PD Day as much as the thirty or so young people who came to the gallery in the downtown Fort William Business District to make lanterns at a CAHEP event.
Young people from across Thunder Bay came in to make paper lanterns and glass lanterns.
Pam Cain from CAHEP stated, “This event was well attended today, we had children attending from Lions Daycare, Youth Centres Thunder Bay and the Thunder Bay Multicultural Association as well as drop in participants who included families, and children with grandparents”.
The program is funded by the United Way and Thunder Bay District Social Services Board.
The program offers the opportunity for youth who might not otherwise be able to participate in these programs the chance to have fun!
“Its great to see parents, and grandparents become involved too”, added Cain.
The Lantern Festival will be held on December 21st at Prince Arthur’s Landing.
Bronson was not making a lot of comments today, but based on the wagging of his tail, and the way he ended up napping as soon as the youth departed, it can be assumed he had a great day too!
Bronson would like to invite you to come to the Lake Superior Art Gallery on November 24th to make a children’s Gingerbread House from 1 to 3PM with Carly Robillard, as a part of the Fort William Business District Open House. For only $5.00 you, or your child can make a Gingerbread House.
Merchants in the Victoriaville Centre, Centennial Square, and the Fort William Business Area that have BIG RED BOWS outside their store will be participating in the area’s Open House. Participants are offering draws, apple cider as well as some in store specials.
The Fort William Business District together with Victoriaville Centre warmly invite you to help ring in the Holiday season with their 18th Annual Tree Lighting Ceremony which will be taking place on Friday, November 23rd at Paterson Park at the corner of Miles & May Street.
