CAPC Open House
About forty people attended the CAB RH Rediker’s Open House at their Community Action Program for Children (CAPC) building on Dufferin Street yesterday. “We had a smaller group than usual visit I think because we had torrential rains in the morning,” said animator Joleen Smith. Despite this, the organizers were still able to recruit a new family to the program:
Amy Rediker, George Boomhower and their two month-old son Oliver. The program, which finishes on June 21st for the summer and starts up again in September, gives moms and dads a chance to have their young children, aged 0 to 5, taken care of while they participate in either cooking workshops, knitting and crochet workshops, and discussion groups on various topics such as how to get $500 from the government to start an education plan for your child (this Thursday’s topic with RESP expert Claire Holt).
During the year the children and parents go on special outings like applepicking, pumpkin picking, and English and French story times at the Haskell Library. For more information call the CAB RH Rediker at 819 876-7748 and ask to speak with Joleen or Maria.
