CAPC Open House

Stanstead Journal - - LENNOXVILLE NEWS -

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.
