Mothers and Kids: Togetherness

Posted by on May 15, 2015.

At CLiF, much of our work occurs behind the scenes. We spend many hours scheduling events, organizing logistics, communicating with coordinators who are on the ground in various communities throughout Vermont and New Hampshire. While we love what we do, nothing compares to hanging up the phone, logging off our email, and stepping out from behind our desks to get face-to-face with the communities, families, and children we serve.

I could start by telling you about the beautiful view of Lake Champlain from our corner table. I could then tell you about the endless performances, exhibits, and activities for kids taking place all day.

I could tell you about the throngs of children – of all ages – gathered around our table eagerly awaiting a turn with the magnetic poetry…or about the looks on their faces when they won prizes – like new books (everyone who participated won a prize).
