The spots for food vendors sold out early. We’ll have all of the traditional festival foods and then some.”In addition to the shopping opportunities and the eat-treats, Shehane said the kids’ activities will provide loads of fun and the entertainment will be outstanding.“Studio 116 in Brundidge and Walgreens in Troy will have a variety of arts and crafts for the kids to create. We’ll have inflatables, too, so there will be a lot of fun for the kids to have while their parents shop and enjoy the entertainment,” Shehane said.“The entertainment will get off to a great start with Lenny Trawick and his band at 8:30 a.m. Tammy Chavers will be on stage at 11:30 a.m. with Charlie. Tammy is a ventriloquist and she brings Charlie to life. You won’t even think of him as a dummy.”At 12:15 p.m., the Pike County High School Jazz Ensemble will perform and Henry Everett and Casual will take center stage at 1 p.m. and close out SpringFest 2014.Shehane said SpringFest is an opportune time to spend time together as a family and to treat mom to a Mother’s Day outing.“I don’t know of many moms who wouldn’t be thrilled to be treated to a mom’s day out at SpringFest on Saturday,” she said. “So, plan to make SpringFest a family outing because we have something fun for everyone. There’s no admission charge to SpringFest.  We just want everyone to come and have a good time.” By The Penny Hoarder Sponsored Content Email the author Published 9:03 pm Thursday, May 8, 2014last_img read more

Story Highlights The Child Protection and Family Services Agency’s (CPFSA) Southern Region will stage its inaugural ‘Facility Day’ on Wednesday (July 11) at St. Monica’s Children’s Home in Chapelton, Clarendon.The day of activities, which gets under way starting at 9:00 a.m., is targeted at officers in Clarendon, St. Elizabeth, and Manchester.Speaking with JIS News, CPFSA Acting Regional Director, Francine Rhoomes, said that the event will provide an opportunity for staff who do not work in the homes to spend quality time with the children, through fun and games and other activities These include foster care officers or persons who provide counselling outside of the facilities.“Staff who do not interact with the children on a daily basis, or have minimal interaction, will now have the chance to interface with them,” Ms. Rhoomes said.“The day will also provide the children with the opportunity to interact with unfamiliar faces and for the staff to forget that they are adults and just have fun time with the children,” she added.She said that at the end of the day, she expects that officers who work in the field will better understand the experience of children who live in the residential facilities.“In general, we want our children to be placed in family-based settings, so when an officer who is responsible for writing court reports spends a day with a child, they will better understand how a child who is placed in a facility feels,” she contended. The CPFSA Southern Region’s Facility Day involves support from Dynamic Life Foundation.St. Monica’s Children’s Home is a privately run facility that receives budgetary and other support from the Government. The day of activities, which gets under way starting at 9:00 a.m., is targeted at officers in Clarendon, St. Elizabeth, and Manchester.last_img read more
