Penquis workshops free to new dads

BANGOR – The Penquis Parents Are Teachers, Too program is offering Boot Camp for New Dads, a free workshop for first-time dads-to-be who are in the last trimester of pregnancy. The next workshop will be held 5-8 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 1, at Penquis, 262 Harlow St. Use the side entrance. Pizza and drinks will be provided.

New babies don’t come with owner’s manuals. Lots of first-time fathers have questions, such as how do I hold, feed, talk to or play with a baby. Boot Camp for New Dads offers first-time fathers-to-be a chance to talk with experienced dads who bring their own babies to the session. The goal is for participants to leave the workshop more confident in their ability to be great dads.

There is no cost to participate. To register or for more information, call Wendy Pace at 973-3674 or 888-389-3610.

The Penquis Parents Are Teachers, Too program is funded in part by a grant from the Maine Department of Health and Human Services. The $488,436 grant funds 84 percent of the program costs for one year.
