On Saturday, August 17, we hosted our 9th Annual Back-to-School Block Party to help families prepare for the upcoming school year. The event featured a backpack giveaway, free vision and dental screenings for children, fun family activities, food trucks, vendors and more. 

Representatives from the school system, county government and agencies shared information about programs and support services for students.
