Tuesday, November 14, 2023 – On Friday, November 10th, the rain brought a chill to the air, but it warmed by the spirit of community as 150 children gathered for a Community Story Walk supported by the Vancouver Island Regional Library, the Military Family Resource Centre, and the Friends of Sooke Parks Society.
The event was well received by children of all ages and included a card-making station where notes made by the children would be shared with Canadian Forces Members currently serving. Children were delighted to walk along the path and stop at each reading station to hear a page from the story and explore the illustration.
We would like to extend a huge thank you to the Vancouver Island Regional Library, the Military Family Resource Centre, and the Friends of Sooke Parks Society for their support and hard work in organizing this event. Their passion for children’s literacy and love of the outdoors made the Community Story Walk a memorable experience for everyone involved.
Thank you to all involved for making the Community Story Walk a success and for bringing joy to the children of Sooke.
The event was funded in part through the District of Sooke’s Community Climate Action Seed funding program.
