To the editor;
I was at the Teddy Bears Picnic on Saturday, Aug. 13, held at the North Thompson Fall Fair facility to take pictures for the Star/Journal.
I had a wonderful time being with all those youngsters; they dashed around playing with each other, taking part in all the available activities and seemed to be bursting with excitement and energy.
As I mingled with the kids, who were of mixed ages, I suddenly realized that I had not seen one of them with a cell phone!
I was astonished, and also pleased to see that kids can still be kids, having a great time without constant attachment to electronic gadgets.
A big thanks to Barriere and Area Literacy Outreach and everyone who contributed in any way to this event, it was simply wonderful.
