On behalf of the children and families who attended this year's Children's Fair on March 24, I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for your commitment to this wonderful family-focused event! It's amazing how thousands of people and hundreds of agencies stop everything they are doing in their incredibly busy lives to make this special day possible for Imperial County families. One of the best things about living in our community is that we can really count on each other, especially when it comes to supporting our children.
This event is co-sponsored by the Child Abuse Prevention Council, the Imperial County Office of Education and the El Centro Kiwanis Club. It is not a fund raiser. Instead, it is a community awareness event that, hopefully, connects families with family-related resource agencies that can help our families be as strong and healthy as possible. It's a positive child abuse prevention effort that raises the consciousness level of everyone who gets involved.
