As a parent trying to keep children entertained yet make sure they are well taken care of, sometimes it’s overwhelming. What school should I send my child to? How do I start saving for college? Where are the best dentists in the area? All of these questions and more will be answered at the Upstate Family Expo presented by Absolute Total Care. 

This free expo is scheduled for 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 19 at the Greenville Shrine Club located at 119 Beverly Road in Greenville.
