Prizes, games, food and more will be found at a community baby shower in Tuscarawas County this weekend.
The County Health Department is inviting new moms and moms-to-be to the event this Saturday, July 29th.
Officials note that while the event will include about 40 prizes and fun activities, it is also an opportunity to educate moms about Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS).
The department focuses on a variety of tips and suggestions to help reduce the risk of SIDS and encourage safe sleep habits and practices.
According to the agency’s website, “Our goal with this event is to send our guests home with the knowledge and confidence to keep their babies as safe and healthy as possible, along with increased awareness about the community resources available to them.
The Community Baby Shower will be held at the New Philadelphia Elks from 12:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.
REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED. Those interested in attending must pre-register by calling Nicole Dorsey at 330-343-5555 Ext. 111.
