Families with young children were welcomed to the Bryson RA and Lion’s Club site on Saturday, where they were offered learning opportunities on everything from developing a healthy body image to breastfeeding.
Hosted by the Pontiac’s Committee 0-5 Years, the Early Childhood Expo featured vendors, guest speakers, interactive workshops and various kiosks, encouraging the development of healthy and happy children.
“The goal was to promote services for family with children [up to five-years-old] in the community,” said Lisa Lagacé, coordinator of the committee. “We try to touch on everything in our workshops.”
