Grandparents were invited to attend special activities and participate in a book fair. The book fair featured a wide range of books for younger children under the age of five, including mystery, adventure, fantasy, sports, academic stories, and educational toys.

The center hosted many family members attending the event with entertainment, refreshments and more. Some parents were unable to attend however the City of Natchitoches Police Department and other volunteers helped out. The volunteers escorted children to the Book Fair, assisted with the purchase of books, ate snacks and even gave them a quick glance at the Police cars and motorcycles.

All students helped to plan the fair by creating special art projects for their grandparents and singing songs to celebrate the special day. Cobblestones staff encouraged children to learn life skills while helping to make reading for pleasure a cool activity at their school. Karis Cobb, director of Cobblestones CDC, would like to say thank you to all of the grandparents and volunteers for making the Grandparent’s Day celebration one to remember.
