Education is a Family Affair

July 8th, 2010

CASTLE is a non-profit organization that has been providing before and after school care and programs for Colchester’s children since 1991.  They were a recipient in the first CLF grant program.  Their proposal was to create a unique message to parents and families from a child’s point of view.  Through the use of video technology purchased with their CLF grant, CASTLE has created a mixed media message to parents and families titled, “Education is a Family Affair!”

They have shared their production with us, please enjoy viewing the video:
