Over 20 Cortes youth attended a puppet making workshop with Meinsje Vlaming this past weekend, sponsored by the Forest Trust for the Children of Cortes Island Society (FTCCIS) in partnership with the Lakehouse Learning Center.

Many of you may know of Meinsje's legendary skills across the full spectrum of the arts, but Meinsje goes over the top, when it comes to making puppets! Under Meinsje's enthusiastic instruction, an energetic roomful of Cortes youth created... a forest full of puppet creatures, who will hit the road early 2015 to take the message of, the Children's Forest, to coastal BC.

FTCCIS extends heartfelt, THANK YOUS, to Meinsje and all of the youth, who came together to create the puppets who will speak for the Children's Forest! Imagine... a forest in trust to the children!

Don't miss the next great youth workshop in line... Forest Alphabet Rap with Blue Jay Dan this coming Saturday, Nov. 22, 10:00 am - 1:00 pm at the Lakehouse Learning Center, Manson's Hall.
Please call Ashe to register for the workshop at 935 6734. The more the merrier!
