A Parenting Resource Fair was held recently in Haleyville at the 21st Street Gym. This event was a great place for parents, grandparents, relatives, foster parents, and guardians wanting to learn more about raising children. This Parenting Resource Fair was organized by Head Start, Winston County Extension Office, and the City of Haleyville.
Participants viewed displays and talked with representatives of over 30 organizations that help children and their parents. Many of these exhibitors had free publications, discounts on services, and even promotional items for parents to pick up. The Parenting Resource Fair was well attended and we hope to increase the numbers next year. Health care providers, dentists, banks and financial companies, education and government services, Community Action, are just a few of the categories of exhibitors. Pre-registration is not required and this event was free of charge.
