Cumberland seniors and toddlers interact this fall

  • Aug. 31, 2015 5:00 a.m.

Cumberland Recreation is collaborating with Cumberland Lodge to offer an intergenerational music program this fall.

TreeFrog Music brings seniors, toddlers and parents together to sing, dance, shake shakers, and swing scarves. The weekly classes offer a chance to create special moments between the very young and the very old and allow for the sharing of pure musical fun with the elders in the lodge. The program was the brainchild of TreeFrog Music owner/teacher, Kazimea Sokil. TreeFrog Music is based on the philosophy that music is a source of joy that can be shared by everyone. The parent and tot program runs Tuesdays, starting Sept. 15 from 11 – 11:45 a.m. Call 250-336-2231 or visit Cumberland.ca for more information or to register.
