Storytime in the park

A summer evening treat for local children in Cache Creek park.

Two dozen children brought parents and grandparents to Storytime in the Park in Cache Creek on Aug. 8. The event was supported by Bridging to Literacy, Make Children First, and the Village of Cache Creek, and the weather couldn’t have been better as everyone gathered for stretching, story reading, crafts, and snacks. Every child who was there came away with a goodie bag and will receive a book of their own. Organisers Anne Belcham and Deanna Horsting are planning storytime sessions in Ashcroft and Clinton later in the year, and are hoping to be able to include other communities at a future date.
