Summertime … and the Livin’ Is Busy
Youngsters at the Dunham Children’s Learning Center are basking in the joys of summer, reveling in expanded playtime and creating colorful works of art. The extended outdoor hours are made possible by installation of an artificial-turf play area, a significant improvement that means no more disruptive mud puddles! As for artistic expression, Director Barbara J. Albert said the boys and girls frequently watched student/faculty progress on the Centennial Mosaic, resulting in lots of spontaneous collages upon their return to the center. As an extension of those inspiring visits, group leader Neva E. Simcox and assistant group leaders Sonya K. Kellogg and Regina G. Andes helped the children fashion their own version.
