On Monday September 24, Parks Place came and celebrated National Family Day by setting up a table outside of CES after school. There were prizes to be had and pasta to be given away as families signed a contract agreeing to sit down to a meal, share food and discussion.
National Family Day was started in 2001 by the Center of Addiction. It celebrates the everyday things we do as a family, such as playing a game, reading together, going for walks and of course, eating dinner together. The belief is that the simple activity of spending quality time together as a family strengthens family relationships that can lead to a healthier, more successful lives. Thanks to Deb from Parks Place for setting this up!
