WARRENTON --- The Warren County 21st Century Family Literacy and Activity Center has a new home this school year, in Room 219 at Warren County High School.
The room is being prepared to allow parents and community partners an opportunity to come during the day for extended learning activities and informative discussion sessions on various topics.
Turnout was better than expected for the Family Literacy Center's first program of the school year. Caroline Richardson from the University of Georgia Cooperative Extension Service met with 19 parents and community partners for an informative discussion on the challenges of diabetes.
The program was sponsored by Side Street Pizzeria in Warrenton, Ryan's in Thomson, and the Garden Gazebo in Warrenton. A light lunch followed the program.
The Family Literacy and Activity Center plans more programs. Program coordinator Wanda Jenkins encourages all members of the community who might be interested to become involved. For more information on future programs or for information on how you can become involved, contact the center at (706) 465-3742, ext. 22.
