After positive responses to Kangaroo Klub, a breastfeeding support group, Baptist Health Paducah has added another location.

Resources, like an educational segment addressing breastfeeding/parenting issues, will be provided.

Refreshments and door prizes will also be available.

Kangaroo Klub Metropolis will have their first meeting from 10 to 11:30 a.m. Jan, 18 at Immanuel Baptist Church at 1119 Market St., Metropolis, IL.

Kangaroo Klub Paducah meets 1 to 2:30 p.m. on the first Friday of each month. This meeting takes place in the Shirley Trail Lanier Classroom on the second floor of Medical Park 2.
