The Arts for Tots program in Steinbach are thrilled to have received a response from the Queen of England after they sent her a letter to wishing her a happy 50th anniversary as sovereign.
In early March, Arts for Tots instructors Treena Gosbee and Miss Butler told their pre-school students that it was Queen Elizabeth’s Diamond Jubilee.
According to Shannon Neufeld, from the Steinbach Arts Council, the students replied in disbelief “Oh Miss Treena, that’s a fairy tale.”
To prove the Queen was real, at the urging of Gosbee and Butler, the preschoolers composed a congratulatory letter to her Majesty. Much to their surprise and pleasure, she actually replied.
“How do you open a letter from royalty?” Gosbee asked.
The letter was read out loud to the students then carefully famed to be hung in the Arts for Tots Preschool Classroom.
