“We are excited to be able to participate in such an important community event,” said Nora Farhat, owner of British Swim School. “As a parent myself I know how difficult it can be to find different activities and services that cater to kids in the Dearborn area. This event is all about kids. We want them to come out have fun while the parents get a chance to learn about local businesses.”
