TD Summer Reading Club helps kids find and explore their passions and encourages them to share their delight with others along the way. Through books, programs, and conversations, TD Summer Reading Club kids can dive into areas that already fascinate them, dabble in others for new inspiration and discover that their passions have the potential to transform them, their friends and their world. For more information please contact Carrie Hogan: chogan0@gmail.com For ages 4 to 12

Biblio Wakefield Library is pleased to announce the launch of the On the Path to Reconciliation book discussion group. This discussion group is offered in partnership with the Bearing Witness project. On the Path to Reconciliation will meet monthly at Biblio Wakefield Library to read and discuss books that allow participants to gain understanding and begin discussions around Indigenous issues in Canada.

Interested community members are encouraged to attend one or all of the gatherings. The selected titles are available through local bookstores or online retailers. Attendees are asked to purchase the books and read them in advance of the gatherings.

Youth Art Exhibit

Mother Earth

Celebrating Our Mother Earth

The 2017 art submissions to the exhibit more than tripled last year’s with 131 pieces of art on display coming from artists aged 3 to 17. Artists came from across the Municipality of La Pêche and beyond. Students from Peggy Brewin Pre-School, Wakefield Elementary School and École secondaire des Lacs were all represented.

The Pipolinka bakery, the Confiserie, the General Store and Anne Winshop with Bean Fair generously contributed food and fair trade hot chocolate to the event. The Municipality of La Pêche helped provide funds for the exhibit and gala.

The Gala featured talented young performers including: 12 year old Ava Wentges reading her story ‘North Pole Penquin’ which was co-written with her father Taylor, 11 year old Anouk Marks on the keyboard, 8 year old Noah Marks on the violin, 7 year old Isaac Bardell DeFranco on the trumpet, 16 year old Martin Duford singing with his guitar and 12 year old Ryely Johnson on the key board.

Thank you to all participants. See you next year!
