PRG Spring Cover 2018Published 04 /15/18, PRG Spring Edition

The 7th Annual Camp and Activities Fair is almost here – mark your calendars for May 5th! We are pleased to continue our partnership with Nevada City Parks & Recreation to bring this Fair to Nevada City. The Fair provides a connection between the people organizing summer activities and the families who want to keep their children active and learning this summer. Come talk to camp directors and program leaders to find the perfect activities for your child. The first section of the magazine is devoted to upcoming summer activities and you can take a “sneak peek” at some of the vendors who will be at the Fair.

On May 5, there are several other events taking place besides the Camp Fair: the Safety and Health Carnival at the Rood Center and Family Fun Day at The Center for the Arts. All these events should be fun and informative.

Included in the Spring issue this time is the Children’s Bill of Rights. Created by the Community Support Network of Nevada County (CSNNC), the document is meant to bring awareness to the importance of considering the well-being of children when policies and programs are discussed. CSNNC’s website has more information and has the document in a format designed to be framed and hung on the wall.

Other articles cover summer safety tips for our pets, acknowledge parents need a little TLC from time to time and suggest that there really is value to our car’s warning lights. Also, the article on the harmful chemicals found in our homes – from furniture to stuffed animals – deserves attention!

Again, thank you for your support. We hope you enjoy looking through the magazine and discovering new ways to improve the health and well-being of your family and your community.
