 Who should watch Parenting On The Go​​​​​ videos?   

All community members who have or interact with children should take four minutes to watch at least one "Parenting On The Go video".  Why?  Because the videos are designed to fit into our busy lives AND the videos contain important messages from local experts that you don't want to miss.

Would you like to help

make a difference in the lives of children and families?

WBYA and the WB Optimists co-sponsored a trip to the Detroit Zoo August 1st.  We were pleased to take 14 students to listen to world renowned Penguin scientist, Dr. P Dee Boersma speak on the new Penguinarium.  The group then took the train to the back of the zoo to see the Polar bear exhibit. Zebras, camels, butterflies... Oh My! 

What a great day for the Zoo!
