June 25, 2003 — Childcare providers, parents and families are urged to attend the St. Thomas Childhood Development Fund Town Meeting Thursday, June 26, to offer suggestions and ideas to the V.I. Human Services Department.
The meeting will be held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Knud Hansen Complex, St. Thomas. St. Croix's meeting was held Wednesday.
Territory-wide plans affecting V.I. children from Oct. 1, 2003, to September 30, 2005, will be discussed.
"All are invited," said Velven Samuel, director of the Office of Childcare, Regulatory and Volunteer Services, "but it is especially essential for parents and childcare providers who have or care for children between the ages of 7 and 13 to attend."
