Calvin’s April Showers event will be on April 23 this year. This is our annual gathering of clothes, blankets, diapers and other baby care items to help with little ones in need in our community. Through the Babies First program in Washington County, babies and young children at risk of not growing to their full potential are identified by their doctors. This information is passed on to the public health nurses helping these children after they come home. Needs can arise from such things as a cleft palate or other physical problem, a low apgar score at birth, first time parents, or a family living on a very limited income.
