National Week of the Young Child
Oconee County’s First Steps celebrates the Week of the Young Child this morning by distributing “Resource Guides for Families with Young Children.” Representatives of all Oconee law enforcement agencies are to receive the guides at 10 o’clock this morning in the administrative offices of the Seneca Police Department. According to Marie Dunnam, executive director of First Steps, the idea came more than two years ago. The most often mentioned need was a guide listing all services available and phone numbers, so that all law enforcement officers and all squad cars have the information available. Dunnam says the resource guide doesn’t replace the 211 system, but augments and complements it.
