Following are the Pine River-Backus Family Center events in May.

Pine River Area Food Shelf: The food shelf is open from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tuesdays and Fridays.

Wonderful Wednesdays: Wonderful Wednesdays is offered for children ages 3 (must be 3 by Sept. 1, of last year), 4 or 5 and children who were not in kindergarten this past year. The event runs from 9-11 a.m. June 13-Aug. 1 at PR-B School. Space is limited, so register early by calling Karen at the family center.

Home Visiting Program: This is a free program. Home visiting begins prenatally or before a child is 3 months old and continues through their 3rd birthday. Weekly home visits are filled with activities and information about a child's development. From charting their first milestones, to identifying qualities and characteristics desired in a child, the family support specialist will help parents pick out what is important to create ways to instill those values in children.

Call Alex at the family center to learn more about home visiting and other parenting resources. Free gift bags are available to all families who are expecting a baby or have a newborn and live in the Pine River-Backus School District.

MNsure Navigator: Call the family center for questions or to set up an appointment.

CTC: Well Child Clinic is Thursday, May 24. Call Karen at the family center to schedule an appointment.

The family center will be closed Monday, May 28, in observance of Memorial Day.
