Nearly 50 exhibitors will be on sight with resources for families as it relates to their physical, emotional and spiritual wellbeing. Be prepared for lots of dancing and photo opportunities with costumed characters including Minions and the Chick-fil-A Herd of Cows milling through the crowd with gift cards and plush stuffed cows. The event will also recognize our 2022 Scholarship Recipients, chosen from among 110 area high school seniors who each shared in an essay about the importance of giving back to our community.
“Birmingham Christian Family Magazine was established in 2000 as a resource for families,” said publisher Laurie Franklin. “During those early years, that meant spreading Good News through our monthly print magazines. Today, we share that same Good News 24/7 through print, digital and social media platforms. We couldn’t have done this without our community, families, and advertisers who believe in our mission. We thank God for allowing us to spread Good News in Central Alabama for 22 years.” Special thanks to Expo sponsors First Priority, Shades Mountain Baptist Church and the Collins Group as well as Alabama Credit Union, Alabama Relay, Children’s of Alabama, Reignite Chiropractic, Renewal by Anderson, Thrivent, and Vulcan Termite and Pest Control. Sozo Children’s Stuff the Truck will also be onsite accepting donations including used clothing, shoes, accessories, and household items.
