Wallingford, CT, August 19, 2013…..The Preschool class at the Masonicare
Child Development Center held their eleventh annual Farmers’ Market and Bake Sale on August 15 at the Center, located on the Masonicare campus in Wallingford.
The market featured a variety of fresh-picked vegetables, mostly grown by the children in the garden they planted and tended throughout the spring and summer. The sale also included an assortment of delicious baked goods prepared by the children – with a little help from staff and parents. The preschoolers were taught how to count money, learned what good “customer service” is all about, and how to work together as a team to achieve a goal.
As always, many resident “Grandma’s and Grandpa’s” from Masonicare Health Center, along with parents and employees, provided support and assistance, helping to make the highly anticipated event a great success.
