On Saturday, April 3, the Williamson County Child Advocacy Center will partner with other local organizations, such as Mercy Children’s Clinic, Franklin Police Department, Franklin Fire Department and others for the Celebrate Children’s Fair 2010 at Pinkerton Park from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. This free event will be a day to celebrate the lives of all children and kick off April as National Child Abuse Prevention Month.
“Celebrate Children’s Fair is a fun and family-friendly, as well as educational, activity for our community,” said Brenda Davis, Executive Director for the Williamson County Child Advocacy Center. “It is also an excellent opportunity for the people of Williamson County to learn about the different ways they can get involved and show support to the many different organizations around the county.”
This lively event will include fun-filled activities such as game booths with prizes, face painting, relay races, and tours of a police car and fire truck. The Franklin Police Department will be on hand to provide finger printing for children, provide information on child safety seat installation, and its K-9 Unit will conduct demonstrations at 11:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m.
Each partnering organization will have an individual booth set up with activities and information about the services they provide. Food for the event has been generously donated by Dominos Pizza, Chick-Fil-A, Purity Dairies, and Costco.
