“Heroes” celebrated at Magnolia Park

MAGNOLIA PARK in Garden Grove will “Celebrate Everyday Heroes” on Saturday

Garden Grove’s Magnolia Park Family Resource Center is celebrating its 18th anniversary on Saturday. To commemorate the special occasion, MPFRC is hosting a free community event, “Celebrating Everyday Heroes,” from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., at Magnolia Park, located at 11402 Magnolia St.

“Celebrating Everyday Heroes’ is an opportunity to recognize the groups and individuals who directly contribute to the success of the center and continually go above and beyond to ensure families are stronger and healthier,” says Center Director Claudia Valdivia-Alvarez.

Highlights of the event include performances from local student clubs and groups, activities for the entire family, games for children, raffle prizes, a resource fair, and free health screenings. Food and refreshments will be available to the first 300 attendees.

MPFRC is the result of the city’s long-standing emphasis on developing youth potential, supporting families, and enriching communities through the Family Opportunities Creating Unity and Support (FOCUS) philosophy.

Services offered at MPFRC include individual and family counseling, parent classes, domestic violence support programs, teen and youth programs, and health and wellness services and resources.
