Frontier College ran a first-ever Reading Tent as part of TD Salsa on St. Clair
on July 9th and 10th. In the midst of all the salsa music, dancing and delectable food, we were a calm oasis of books, reading and colouring for children from tots on up, in partnership with the TD Welcome to Canada tent right next door. We had well over 300 children visit the tent to read books with our staff and volunteers, their parents, or on their own. Colouring pages and stickable foam letters were also a big hit. We also gave away over 500 children’s books from TD. In spite of a torrential downpour on Saturday afternoon, it was a huge success.
