On Sunday, the Marion County Family Resource Network ended its Teen Leadership Camp with Thinkfast, and also brought this unique offering to the members of the public for free.
A “fun and exciting” family event is coming to Fairmont.
“Thinkfast” is an interactive game show that allows the audience to participate in activities while learning about a topic. The event is intended for families to attend.
Marion County Family Resource Network is sponsoring the event in order to help teach and increase the awareness of a variety of topics. Debbie Mann, interim director of the Family Resource Network, said the event begins when people show up.
Sponsored by the United Way of Marion County, an event on Sunday, March 16, will support the Sobrania Soup Opera, Mannington Food Pantry and the Salvation Army, providing needed nourishment for county residents. Empty Bowls Marion County also feeds the creative spirit of local potters.
A new partnership between paws4people, the Marion County Humane Society, Pruntytown Correctional Center and Fairmont State University will provide training to help shelter dogs become service dogs for those who need them, as well as an opportunity for inmates to give back to the community.
