Literacy Skate with the Jr. Trappers on SaturdayThursday, January 24, 2013 by: BayToday.ca StaffThe North Bay Literacy Council and the Ontario Early Years Centre-Nipissing (proudly supported by Community Living North Bay) are once again this year presenting Family Literacy Day. The North Bay Junior “A” Trappers are excited to be included in this community partnership.
"The Trappers are very proud of our partnership with Community Living North Bay. Our School Breakfast Club visits have grown to be a huge hit for so many area schools and our players each season," stated Trappers head coach Tom McCarthy.
"The Trappers believe in family and very much look forward to helping to raise awareness of the importance of reading and engaging in other literacy-related activities.”
Family Literacy Day is being held this year on Saturday, January 26, 2013 at Sam Jacks Community Centre (West Ferris Arena).
There will be free skating with the Trappers and participants can head upstairs in the auditorium for crafts, stories, make your own book, face painting, play dough activities and snacks!
The event will run from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. There will be one free hot chocolate per person. Bring along your friends and family and be a part of the fun while promoting literacy in our area.
