Winnie-the-Pooh, bringing a love of literacy

/, YMCA Northumberland/Winnie-the-Pooh, bringing a love of literacy

We have a new community member in Northumberland County! Bringing a love of literacy everywhere he goes, our furriest member, Winnie-the-Pooh is a bear with an incredible past, rich with words. Winnie’s first appearance was at YMCA Healthy Kids day on April 30th at the Cobourg YMCA.

This initiative is made possible by the Community Fund for Canada’s 150th, a collaboration between the Campbellford/Seymour Community Foundation, the Government of Canada, and exceptional leaders from coast to coast to coast.

Look for Winnie across the County participating and entertaining at many OEYC and YMCA events. Winnie’s next official appearance will be at the Teddy Bear Picnic in July and Winnie-the-Pooh Literacy Event in August.
