Brody, Austin, Sofia and Nova load the parachute up with balls during the Child Care Resource and Referral play group that was held in McBride on July 20, 2022. Ian, Austin and Sofia’s father, was thrilled to have stumbled across the event as they were visiting from out of town. “We thought we would come down to the park for a bit today,” he said. “This is great. The kids are loving it.” Representatives from Prince George-based CCRR visited McBride on Wednesday July 20, 2022. They brought with them a variety of crafts and simple outdoor game supplies for ages 0-12 years. Their goal is provide a free active playgroup opportunity for children. They do require that all children are accompanied by an adult. They are traveling to 39 parks/schools between July 11, 2022 and September 2, covering ground from Mackenzie to Valemount. They are scheduled to be in Valemount on Tuesday, August 30, 2022. At this time, they are not sure what time they will arrive, but their goal is to provide the opportunity to all kids, without running into naptime. CCRR is funded by the BC Ministry of Education and Child Care, and is sponsored by the YMCA of Northern BC. /ANDREA ARNOLD
