The St. John’s CDC: “Doing for Others is the Best!”

By Barbara Jo Corriher

On Friday, Oct. 26, St. John’s Rainbow Makers made a rainy day a very happy, sunny day inside our Child Development Center. The Rainbow Makers, teachers and children had a delightful morning laughing, painting, tossing, playing and more.

At the Go Fish station, Gary Taylor attached the package of Gold Fish crackers while Larry Britt helped each child with the fishing pole. Sally Taylor and Jane Britt painted each little face with a pumpkin or a ghost at the face painting station. Amy Ritchie shared a ring toss game that was educational, active and fun. Judy Childress shared stories and even came dressed to impress with her blue, curly wig atop of her head. Lorna Reasor and Barbara Corriher guided the children through the Glow-n-the-Dark painting station. Everyone had the best time and now we hope you will enjoy these pictures. Anytime you wish to experience the happiness of St John’s CDC visit their Facebook page, @stjohnscdc, where the staff constantly shares the good things that are always happening at our CDC.
