World Breastfeeding Week Celebration
Our first World Breastfeeding Week celebration at the Roger Williams Park Zoo on August 7 was a huge success. Over 1100 children, mothers, fathers, and grandparents enjoyed a beautiful night of dancing to the music of Spin Productions, face painting, stories by Tandem Tellers and our own Mimi Desjarlais, and lots of fun. Vendors were thrilled with the turnout and many asked if we will do it again next year. A special thank you to our sponsors for their continued support of RIBC and to Mary Lovegreen, the Project Director, and her team.
