Help kids eat well HERE & NOW
t’s not always easy convincing kids to eat well, but the folks from Burnaby Food First are offering help. The local group is hosting two workshops on healthy snacks for kids, and children are welcome to attend, with adult supervision, of course. The first session is on Wednesday, Sept. 17, at Burnaby Community
Services, at 2055 Rosser St. The second is on Tuesday, Sept. 30, at the Tommy Douglas library branch, at 7311 Kingsway. The workshops are free, but space is limited, so be sure to register by calling 604-618-3581 or email burnabyfoodfirst@gmail. com.
For the record
I have a clarification I’d like to share with you about a story I wrote in December of last year about the passing of Dinty Moore, a longtime Burnaby resident. In my article, I wrote that he was the longest living amongst his siblings, when I really meant to
say he was the last living. Apologies for the confusion, as the distinction is important, because I received an email from relatives of Dinty’s, who pointed out that Montague (Monty) Hutchings Moore (Dinty’s brother), actually lived the longest out of the siblings. Monty was born Aug. 10 and lived till Nov. 10, 2007, so he died at 93 years and three months, while Dinty lived for 92 years and six months. Do you have an item for Here & Now?
