Expecting a new addition to the family?

On Tuesday, June 3 the Healthy Start Coalition of Bay, Franklin and Gulf counties will present its sixth annual Community Baby Shower at the Centennial Building in Port St. Joe.

Mothers who have had children in the last six months and mommies-to-be are welcome to join the event for an evening of games, refreshments, community vendors, educational info and door prizes.

Dads and family members are also invited to partake in the fun.

“Anyone who is a caregiver to the baby will benefit from the event,” said event organizer Suzy Nadler. “That includes daddies and grandparents.”

More than 25 vendors will provide information to families on safe sleeping and the dangers of shaking babies. Nadler said that there are many infant deaths each year that could have been prevented by education.

Last year, more than 130 attendees learned about baby safety and care and 33 door prizes were given away.
