Thanks for making Grand Beginnings’ Children’s Fair a success

To the Editor:

In the month of May Grand Beginning’s celebrated its annual Children’s Fair. Over 200 children and families participated in the event this year.

The community went out of its way to offer many fun and educational activities. The children enjoyed touring the ambulance, planting seeds, playing with goo, exploring animal hides and antlers, face painting, posing for funny photos, entering to win a bicycle and much, much more. Parents were able to have certified car seat checks and inquire about parent support services offered within our community. Everyone seemed to truly enjoy themselves.

We wanted to express our sincere gratitude to all of those who helped make this event such a success. Thank You to East Grand Middle School, Fraser Library, Fraser Recreation District, Rocky Mountain National Park, Grand County Fire Department, Grand County Rural Health Network, East Grand School District Preschool, the Ice Angels Softball Team, Grand County EMS, Mountain Parks Electric, Granby Dairy, Ear 2 Ear Photo Booth, Horizons, Kay Irving, Heather Boomer, Jamie Birch, MJ Skelly, Judy Schroedl, Gail Van Bockern, Taunia Shipman, Jane Bujonovich, Wendy Stefanski, Diane Doyle, Amy Miller and all of the individuals who represented participating organizations. Also a big thank you to all of the preschools, daycare centers, and in home providers who took the time to have “their” children create a decorative display for the event.

Lastly, we would like to thank the Grand County commissioners for their ongoing support of Grand Beginnings and their dedication to quality early childhood programs throughout the county. It is through a collaborative effort with local stakeholders such as the BOCC, Grand Foundation, Lions Club, Social Services, Public Health, and the towns of Grand County that we are able to offer the community events and programs. Together We’re Better. Thank You.
