Week of the Child event Saturday at mall

Staff Report

LUMBERTON — There’s something for everyone on Saturday when the Week of the Young Child begins at Biggs Park Mall.

The event, hosted by the Robeson County Partnership for Children, will be held from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. and is for children, parents, grandparents, caregivers, and teachers.

It’s an event that will entertain children and inform parents and caregivers, said Tina Rowan, event planner and fund development assistant for the Robeson County Partnership for Children.

“Smart Start day is to give people in the community resources for childcare and childcare services,” Rowan said. “We have a lot of different organizations that participate and they have activities with the children. It’s kind of like a kid’s day, but it’s really to help parents stay abreast of what’s available to them.”

Each table will have information on resources for parents and activities for children, such as coloring or crafts. There will be door prizes, food and entertainment.

No registration is required and admission is free. For information, call 910-738-6767.

There also will be information available about the Beautiful Baby contest, a fundraiser for the Foundation that is being held in conjunction with The Robesonian.
