Free Somerset Community Baby Shower

Skowhegan, Maine – Calling all pregnant women, new moms, and their families in Somerset
County! Join us at the third annual free Community Baby Shower.

On Saturday, June 11 from 10:00am – 2:30pm, the Somerset Family Enrichment Council and
other community partners will be hosting a Community Baby Shower at the Centenary United
Methodist Church on the Dr. Mann Road in Skowhegan. This free event supports new moms and
families with resources, education, and helpful gifts.

Dozens of raffle and door prizes will be given away throughout the event, including baby bath
items, car seats, pack and plays, strollers, and more.
The Community Baby Shower is designed to support parents and help them by providing basic
newborn supplies, knowledge about resources in the community, to make new social
connections, and simply have fun together.

Community partners will be providing information and giveaways to attendees. Topics include
Safe Sleep practices, breastfeeding, health services, the WIC program, car seat safety, self-care
for parents, a baby boutique with free gently used baby clothes, and more.

“The Community Baby Shower is a great way to celebrate pregnant women and new families
and let them know they are an important part of our community,” said event organizer, Kristen
Plummer. “Participants at past events have raved about how much fun they had and how
connected and prepared they felt to become new parents as a result of attending the shower.”

The first 150 mothers registered will receive a Welcome Baby Bag filled with items for their
newborn. There will be light refreshments. The event will be offered in three 1 ½ hour sessions
and families will need to register prior to the event.
