The Moose Jaw Health Foundation (MJHF) is supporting a 'Winter Wonderland' event at the Moose Jaw Early Years Family Resource Centre for families with children aged 0 to 5 years old, on Friday, Dec. 15 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.
"This is a fun-filled holiday event, and the Early Years Family Resource Centre does such fabulous work in Moose Jaw. We're just happy to support the great work that they do over there. They're a bit of a hidden gem in our community," said MJHF executive director Kelly McElree.
"There's gonna be snacks, hot chocolate, a lot of winter-themed activities both inside and out, although some of that is weather-dependent, of course. Morty the Moose, official mascot of the Moose Jaw Warriors, is going to be there, so families should get a photo with him. There's no cost involved, and they have a great time putting this together."
There will also be horse-drawn wagon rides and an activities bag to take home. The Centre is at 1250 11th Ave. N.W., and the event is come-and-go as is convenient.
McElree added that he has recently taken a tour of all the different programs the Early Years Family Resource Centre provides. He called their work a "form of healthcare outside of the hospital" and a contribution to overall health of families in Moose Jaw.
Ryan Hrechka, chair of the MJHF, stated that “Winter Wonderland will bring many bright smiles to children and their families in Moose Jaw. The Foundation is very thankful to work with the talented Early Years Family Resource Centre staff for their countless hours of work to make Winter Wonderland possible."
