Building brains is the name of the event that kicked off a weeklong event which celebrates young children and those who teach them.  Lolly Nelson, the Coordinator for the Deschutes County Week of the Young Child explains the purpose of the event: “Well, the Week of the Young Child is a nationally recognized week that honors children and really looks at the needs of young children in our community and then honors the parents and care providers that help children make the most of their early learning opportunities." Over 200 people attended the Building Brains event Tuesday night. The next opportunity to join in the activities is this Friday. “Eat, Play, Love” is a celebration for families with young children at the High Desert Museum in Bend. It runs from 4:30 to 7 pm. It includes a healthy dinner, playing and learning activites and live music by musician Victor Johnson.
