Parents and guardians should bring each child's Social Security card, PeachCare or Medicaid card, and court orders if guardianship awarded. Also bring a utility bill, or state issued ID, for proof of residency.

The Resource Expo will be in the CEC cafeteria located just inside the main entrance. Doors open at 4 p.m. The Expo will end promptly at 6 p.m. Exhibitors should plan to set up at 3 p.m. CEC is located at 160 Martin Luther King Jr. Dr. in Newnan.
