Baby Shower Held for Expectant Mothers

2016 - Community Baby Shower-1Unlike traditional baby showers filled with games, and kitschy decor, Colusa County Held a community baby shower aimed at informing parents and connecting them with available service providers.

“Most parents do not know how or know of the services available to them,” said Carrissa Bowers, “We assembled those services and made them available in one place. It’s all about making connections.”

It was a busy day for the program representatives as the event was well attended.
