Colleton County First Steps held its October Group Connections Meeting Thursday Oct. 26 at the Colleton Annex Learning Center. These monthly meetings are held for parents and children in the Parents as Teachers program.
Cindy Riley, Colleton County’s First Steps executive director, along with parent educators Edith Bright Washington and Susan Martin organized the event and were on hand last Thursday to provide information to parents in attendance. Each child received a treat bag and a book, along with a pumpkin to take home to decorate.
The Walterboro Fire and Police Departments allowed the children to sit in the fire trucks and police car, and gave out hats, stickers, badges and coloring books.
Safe Kids was also in attendance, and each child received a car seat if needed.
