Nov. 20 is National Children’s Day. This day is observed to promote the objectives outlined in the Charter and for the welfare of children.

On Nov. 20, 1958, the United Nations adopted the Declaration of the Rights of the Child, and they adopted the Convention on the Rights of the Child on Nov. 20, 1989.

For the next two weeks, the reception desk is accepting submissions of drawings, crafts, poems and stories by kids aged one to 18, portraying children in some way.

The LRCA will display them throughout the centre and will hold an Art Exhibition Party Nov. 20 from 2-4 p.m.
