Come join us at CPL for the FirstStep Domestic Violence Awareness program on October 29th at 2PM in the purple room. No registration is required.
I just wanted to make you all aware of some very important holidays this week. Tomorrow, Wednesday, October 14th is National Bring Your Teddy Bear to Work day. It's kinda like take your Children to Work Day, except for bears. Make sure your parents know! Probably the best way to make sure they celebrate it would be to sneak your teddy bear into their work bag before they leave. Then make sure you ask what your teddy did at work when they get home.
Judith Barr, Associate Director of First Step, will present a program on domestic violence on October 29, 2:00-3:00PM at the Canton Public Library. First Step is a local resource offering free services to individuals affected by domestic violence and sexual assault. October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month and First Step believes that prevention and awareness are key components to ending violence in our communities.
This program will be held in the library’s Purple Room. It is free, no registration is required. For more information, visit First Step.
