Happy 150th Birthday Canada!
The students at WHF have spent the week celebrating Canada's 150th birthday. We all enjoyed Mary Lambert's performance yesterday afternoon. Mary Lambert is a family singer/songwriter/performer, and outstanding Canadian artist in the children's entertainment field. Her two Juno nominations and thirteen awards from the United States (Parents' Choice Award Winner, iParenting Award Winner, Preferred Choice Award Winner, Tillywig Best Family Fun Award, and Dr. Toy, Best Children's Vacation Product Award Winner) are a remarkable testimony to her talent and artistry!
