Hope families invited to new play time at Family Place

PlayWorks sessions will be hosted by Fraser Valley Child Development staff

Local families with young children will have a new way to play this year.

A program called PlayWorks is coming to Hope, and will take place at the Hope Family Place every other Thursday beginning Jan. 23.

The days that PlayWorks will be running are Jan. 23, Feb. 6, Feb. 20, March 5, April 2, April 16, April 30, May 14, May 28 and June 11 and the sessions run from 10:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. The Hope Family Place is located at 434 Wallace St.
