The Strong Start program held a Mothers’ Day tea at Vavenby Primary School on May 9  to honour moms for all their hard work and love for their children. Everyone had muffins, fresh fruit, yogurt, tea or water.

When the group first arrived the children made cards. Last week they made plaques of their hand prints. The hand print plaques went very well with the poem in the cards.

After tea everyone went to the school library where Linda Brown, leader of the Mother Goose program, took over. Brown read a story and then everyone had fun singing action songs. The children were fully involved.
