PATTI BORUCKI: Thanks for making Family Fun Health Fair a success

TO THE EDITOR:

Manistee County has shown a strong commitment to its children. This was truly evident this past weekend at the Manistee Family Fun Health Fair.

On behalf of the Great Start Collaborative of Manistee County, thank you to all the participants for their time, talent and expertise that you provided to our community last weekend.

We were able to reach 197 people — 111 children and 86 adults — with important health, safety and preschool information. This is beyond double the attendance from last year.

Great Start has received numerous messages, emails and comments from the community on the excellent support of our area agencies and preschools at the fair. Agencies also went the extra step of providing age appropriate activities at their tables and donated some of the prizes.

We hope to build on this success and hope that you will continue to participate in the years to come.

We truly appreciate the agencies and businesses that participated.

The diverse community agency worked as a unified team and showed Manistee has developed strong early childhood partnerships and makes its children a priority. We are very fortunate and grateful to have these partnerships in Manistee that work hand in hand to help give our children a great start in life and in school.

It was truly a wonderful collaborative community event.
