New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - April 25, 1996, New Braunfels, Texas Week of the Young Child to be celebrated Friday in Landa ParkHerald-Zeitung O Thursday, April 25,1996 □ 3 Mayor Paul Fraser proclaimed April 21 to 27 as “The Week of the Young Child” in New Braunfels. With the reading of the proclamation, New Braunfels joined an annual national celebration begun in 1971 by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). Local organizations plan to celebrate the week with a morning of fun in Landa Park on Friday, April 26, from 9 a.m. till noon. A year ago two local child care providers, Homespun EC1 end Comal County Head Start, invited fellow day care providers to join them for a morning in the park in recognition of the week. “It was very informal," said Delia Gomez, center director for the Comal Head Start Program. “We really just invited day cares and preschools to come to the park on their own, and we had a few hands-on activities planned, and the fire department brought a truck. We were surprised by the attendance — about 200. It was a good experience.” This year Gomez and Irene Chapa, inclusion coordinator for Homespun ECI, put in calls to other organizations and formed a planning committee both for the one-day celebration and in order to carry out the larger purpose of the week—to call attention to the importance of the early childhood years in laying the foundation for children’s success in school and later life. As a result of their efforts, this year’s celebration will have many more activities and participants. Planners for the event include Head Start, Homespun ECI, The Children’s Museum in New Braunfels, Teen Connection and J & R Gymnastics. “We are planning for 300 to 500 children, but we’ll be able to handle it because we have more people and organizations involved than last year." The Children’s Museum will provide bubbles, face painting, play clay and slimy goo. Homespun will have a “go fish” booth and a necklace stringing activity. J&R Gymnastics is providing gym equipment and parachute games. Volunteers from Teen Connection and New Braunfels High Boys’ State donation Wurstfost Association President Rusty Brandt presents a chack to Cecil Konkel and Mike McDonald of American Legion Post #35. The funds will allow one student from this area to participate In the annual American Legion Boys' State Program. Receiving a proclamation from Mayor Paul Fraser, which declared April 21-27 as the Week of the Young Child are: Susan Williams, Michael Guenzel, and Libby Guenzel and Ramona Reyes. School VIP students will assist with die activities. Special visitors include the police department’s McGmff, Schlitterbahn’s Baron von Tubin and Clown Jim Miller. Fire department personnel, NBU’s Safe Haven, the D.A.R.E. program and Miss Sutton the Story Lady will also be on hand. Hie Gown Corps will sculpt balloons for children and the Landa Parte Miniature Train will offer two-for-one train rides for the whole day. “We’ve had a lot of support from our local businesses, too. Both McDonalds donated juice and items for the “go fish” booth and other prizes for participants were donated by Mr. Gat-ti’s, TCBY, Walmart, Pizza Hut, Wei-dner’s Flowers, Lenise’s Flower Shop, Schlitterbahn and the Children’s Museum.” According to NAEYC, the nation’s largest organization of early childhood professionals with more than 90,000 members, the purpose of which is to focus public attention on the needs of young children and their families and to support the early childhood pro grams and services that meet those needs.
