Parents and interested community leaders are invited to a free Parents Forum workshop on Saturday, April 28, from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., at the Winthrop Public Library, 2 Metcalf Square, Winthrop. The workshop, with a light lunch provided, is presented with support from DeMoulas Market Basket and Eastern Bank Charitable Foundation. Co-sponsors are Speaker Robert A. DeLeo, Those Who Can for Those In Need, Winthrop Family Network, Winthrop Police Department and Winthrop School Department.

Winthrop resident Therese Ockenden, who has taken the lead in organizing Parents Forum in the community, explains that this positive and preventive program “can help all families by giving parents a chance to reflect on the values they want to transmit to their children.” Parents Forum founder Eve Sullivan, Cambridge resident and co-leader for the April 28 workshop, appreciates the enthusiasm that local residents have given the program, saying, “It is truly is the realization of a long-held dream to see individuals and local agencies come together to support parents with our simple peer support model.”

Space is limited and registration is required for the April 28 workshop. Contact: [email protected] or call 617-864-3802.
