'Terrific' Event



Beautiful weather on Saturday brought out thousands of parents, children and other participants to the 18th annual Greeneville-Greene County Parenting Fair at Hal Henard Elementary School.

Attendance was estimated at 3,500 to 4,000, according to Janie Laws, of the Greeneville City Schools, who coordinated the event along with Suzane Price, of the Greene County Schools.

"The parking lot stayed full, and the crowds moved continuously through really well [throughout the event]," Laws said.

"I feel like we had a terrific fair this year! I really enjoyed it!" she added.

More than 120 booths at the event offered a wide variety of free information on such topics as education, health and wellness, safety, and other topics and community services, providing helpful advice and support to both parents and students.

Representatives at many of the booths presented fair-goers with a variety of free items such as informational brochures, pencils, treats and other items.

The theme of this year's Parenting Fair was "Building Blocks to Good Health."

The event's major sponsor, Laughlin Memorial Hospital, provided several helpful booths related to health and wellness issues for children and youth.

Laws praised the hospital staff and administration for their continued strong financial and hands-on support for the annual Parenting Fair.

In addition to the booths, the four-hour event also featured an entertainment stage with a variety of local dance, karate, choral and instrumental groups.

Also at the event, children could be found enjoying Funville inflatables and free samples of TCBY yogurt.

In addition, several emergency response vehicles were on display outside the school building for the youngsters (both young and older) to admire.
