Lutheran Social Services Hosts Play And Learn Tent At 48th Annual Agriculture Fair

FREDERIKSTED — The Community Foundation of the Virgin Islands and Lutheran Social Services of the Virgin Islands invite children and families to visit their Play & Learn Tent at the 48th Annual Agricultural and Food Fair today and Monday at the Fairgrounds in Lower Love.

The Play & Learn Tent is designed to encourage children and parents to engage together in play and developmentally appropriate activities.

This year’s event will emphasize hands-on activities such as slime-making and flower painting to promote learning through fun.

Early childhood professionals from LSSVI’s Early Head Start Program will guide children and their parents through the activities.

Make sure you get your “Talk at the Fair” handout! Available in both English and Spanish, this guide provides prompts for families with children to talk about what they see and do at the Fair! Families who return a completed “Talk at the Fair” handout will be entered for a raffle prize. Also, CFVI’s annual Fatherhood Collaborative t-shirts will be available for pick-up by fathers.

Follow CFVI on Facebook at for the most up-to-date information about the Play & Learn Tent.

John McCarthy is primarily known for his investigative reporting on the U.S. Virgin Islands. A series of reports beginning in the 1990's revealed that there was everything from coliform bacteria to Cryptosporidium in locally-bottled St. Croix drinking water, according to a then-unpublished University of the Virgin Islands sampling. Another report, following Hurricane Hugo in 1989, cited a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) confidential overview that said that over 40 percent of the U.S. Virgin Islands public lives below the poverty line. The Virgin Islands Free Press is the only Caribbean news source to regularly incorporate the findings of U.S. Freedom of Information Act requests. John's articles have appeared in the BVI Beacon, St. Croix Avis, San Juan Star and Virgin Islands Daily News. He is the former news director of WSVI-TV Channel 8 on St. Croix.
