VIDEO: Arts and crafts fun at Aldergrove community centre

A just-for-kids Easter event, before shutdown

Dozens of kids and parents filled a second-floor activity room at the Aldergrove Credit Union Community Centre on Saturday, March 30, for the first-ever Easter Art Mix event – trying their hands at different arts and crafts projects.

Laura DeSantis, a recreation programmer with the Township of Langley, explained the two-hour program was a special event put on for the kids.

“Just for them to come in and do some art and have some fun,” DeSantis told the Langley Advance Times.

“Our wonderful [program] leaders have come up with lots of different crafts for them to do and take home with them.”

Among the participants, were Aldergrove siblings Kaiden, six, and Skylar, eight, who were very focused as they coloured their Easter-related art.

Dad, Kevin, explained it was a last-minute choice to attend, made after he discovered another kid-friendly Easter weekend event at a local shopping centre had not returned, prompting an online search for kid-friendly Eater events.

“I quickly called it up on Google,” Kevin remarked.

The next day, Sunday, the community centre hosted “Easter Fun at the Pool,” the last such event before the facility was to close its pool area for three weeks (until Sunday, April 21).

An announcement from the Township cited “scheduled maintenance” that would also require the shutdown of the entire facility for one day on Monday, April 1, and the closing of the fitness centre from Monday to Wednesday, April 1 to 3.

More information about arts and culture programs provided by the Township can be found online at tol.ca under “Arts and Culture.”
