On September 10, Sierra Mental Wellness Group (SMWG) participated in the 5thannual Kaiser Permanente KidsFest at Whitney Ranch Park. The event, which benefits SMWG, ran from 12-4 and featured over 40 vendors, activities, and demonstrations. The free event is a fun-filled day for children six and under. SMWG’s booth provided information on counseling and mental wellness for the entire family, and children were able to make “feelings magnets” and take home “feelings coloring books.”
For the second year in a row, SMWG was a contender at the Placer County Honey Festival. On September 17, the agency took 3rd place in the Cornbread baking contest and had a good showing in the Honey Bear Pinewood Derby. A true community event, attendees were able to enjoy the day by sampling honey produced in the region, visiting various vendors, and stopping by the Sierra Mental Wellness table for information about our services.
