On Saturday, June 24 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 event will support 150 families, who will also receive a Welcome Baby Bag filled with items for their newborn. There will be light refreshments. Pre-registration is required.
