The public is invited to “Helping Our Children to Thrive,” a panel discussion to provide support and resources for parents and others toward creating an environment for the well-being of children. This event is scheduled for Tuesday, Feb. 13, at 7 p.m. at the First Baptist Church of Nobleboro, 8 Back Meadow Road, Nobleboro.
Panelists include Mindy Correll, an educator with Healthy Kids Maine, a nonprofit organization serving families; Lydia Crafts, a social worker with the local AOS 93 school system; and Mark Ferrero, the children’s librarian at Skidompha Library in Damariscotta. Each of the panelists is a parent and a local resident. Attendees at the event will add their input in the question-and-answer period following the panel discussion.
The panel discussion is offered free of charge and is the second installment of a series called County Conversations, a community service by the First Baptist Church.
