Knock Knock Children’s Museum held an ice cream social honoring Christine, Callie, Jude and Mickey Parenton, along with their family, friends and children, on Sept. 20 at Acadian House Kitchen + Bath Design.
The social was held to celebrate the Cailyn Michael Parenton Foundation’s sponsorship of the museum’s I See Food Café Learning Zone, a hands-on learning environment that teaches young children about nutrition and inspires creativity through play in a restaurant setting, a news release said. The café will help to foster math, nutrition and early literacy skills.
“Our foundation honors the memory of our daughter, Cailyn Michael Parenton, by creating, building and enhancing the joy of children, including families who have lost children to SIDS, through partnerships that provide outlets for children to build, grow and express themselves. And what better place to do this than at Knock Knock Children’s Museum,” Christine Parenton said.
Young guests in chef hats prepared healthy toppings and took orders from adult diners before the presentation, then served a dessert of low-fat ice cream, fresh fruit toppings, coconut and pecans.
