The Worcester County Health Department will host the 8th Annual Father-Daughter Banquet at 6 p.m. on May 16, at the Worcester Technical High School. Since 2011, Worcester County Health Department has hosted the annual Father-Daughter Banquet with the goal of highlighting the relationship between young women and their fathers, or other role models. Fathers and father figures have a powerful impact on many aspects of their daughters’ lives in areas such as academic achievement, avoiding teen pregnancy, and being self-confident and self-reliant. To celebrate that, Worcester Health invites all 8th-grade girls transitioning to high school next year, and their father or mentors, to attend the banquet.
