BMO Harris Bank Gives to "Folklife...Your Life" School Program

BMO Harris Bank has generously awarded Folklore Village’s long-standing school program, “Folklife… Your Life,” with a grant to fund 2015 programs for elementary age students and to assist those schools whose budgets would not normally allow participation in our program. “Folklife… Your Life” is a long-held program which centers on enriching lives with the appreciation of tradition and heritage. It provides fun and engaging activities such as arts and crafts, games, international folk dancing, and music all designed to highlight and celebrate family, community, and the way we live our lives. “Folklife… Your Life” encourages children to value their own cultural traditions and to recognize these traditions in their day to day lives. A sincere thank-you to BMO Harris Bank for supporting our program and students once again.
