Union County parents will strike something valuable next week.

They will have a golden opportunity to learn about the local services available for their children.

The opportunity will be provided at the Union County Children's Health and Safety Fair.

The fair, which will include activities and attractions for children, will be conducted Wednesday and Thursday at the Blue Mountain Conference Center. No admission will be charged. The fair will run from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. the first day and from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Thursday.

At least 15 organizations that provide services for children will be represented.

The organizations include the Union County Commission on Children and Families, the La Grande Pediatric Clinic, Eastern Oregon Head Start, the Women, Infants and Children program, Lifespan Respite, the Union County Sheriff's Department, the State Fire Marshal, Grande Ronde Hospital, Child Care Resource and Referral, the Temperament Program, Babies First, Union County Public Health, the Self Sufficiency Program, the State Department of Human Services and the Oregon Department of Transportation.

"We want to make all families aware of what services for children are available in our county,'' said Lori Hines, a representative of Union County's Local Interagency Coordinating Council, which is organizing the fair.

The LICC, which addresses developmental needs of county children ages 5 and under, is managed by the Union-Baker Education Service District's early intervention program.

The fair will offer developmental screenings for children age 5 and under in the

following areas: infant development, vision and hearing,

physical development, thinking skills and speech and language development.

Immunizations will be available from the Center for Human Development for those age 18 and under.

Another feature will be a two- story "escape house'' that will be used to teach children how to escape from a burning building.

Children will be entertained at the fair by a variety of costume characters including Elliot the Elephant, who will be at the fair Wednesday.

For information call the ESD at 963-4106.
