Hosted at the Skehan Rec Center in Hampden, Penquis, alongside Maine Families and Prevention Council, provided a warm place to have some great family fun!

Families with children under five were invited to participate in winter-themed indoor activities. Games, face painting, snacks, crafts, and even a decorated tent were available in the gym for the kids to take full advantage of. There was also a chance to enter into a book raffle.

All food for the event was donated by the Town of Hampden.
