According to a county release, there will be a special presentation, “I was Raised by My Grandmother,” with guest speaker Daniel Canova Sr. Chris Zellers, FCHS educator/assistant professor, stated, “Dan, a successful construction designmanager, will provide a glimpse of a grandchild’s perspective of being loved and raised by his grandmother.” 

Children who might benefit from hearing Canova's story are welcome to stay and listen. There will be childcare for those children too young or unable to understand the topic.
