On February 15, representatives from Tri-County Human Services Early Intervention, Northeastern Educational Early Intervention and Head Start will provide screenings at Elk Lake Elementary School from 1 p.m. until 6 p.m. Families with children aged birth to four are encouraged to take advantage of this free service.
