New moms and moms-to-be living in Dickinson County are invited to attend the fourth annual Community Baby Shower, back after a two-year hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The baby shower is scheduled from 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 25 in Sterl Hall. Registration begins at 4:30 p.m. The event is only open to pregnant women and post-partum women who have delivered by June 1 or later. “The goal of the event is to help bring awareness to pregnant and postpartum women, as well as their families and support systems, about the services that are available to them as an individual or as a family, be it transportation services, early childhood services or whatever,” explained Dickinson County Health Department Deputy Director Brenda Weaver, RN.“I think there’s a lack of knowledge of what services are available,” she added.Sixteen vendors, representing groups and organizations from Dickinson County and also from the region and across the state, are scheduled to attend.The new moms and pregnant women are asked to register, making them eligible to collect tickets from the vendors to be used for gift basket drawings.“While the registering is going on, people can help themselves to food, cake and drinks whilewaiting for the event to start,” Weaver said. Anyone interested in learning more about the Community Baby Shower and/or other services offered by the Dickinson County Health Department should call the health department at (785) 263-4179.
