Cero's Candies has moved to a new location at 3429 E. Douglas.
Wednesday's ribbon-cutting ceremony began with a proclamation read by Mayor Carl Brewer that explained the history of Cero's Candies and its ties to Wichita. He then declared August 2013 Cero's Candies Month and encouraged the dozens of people in attendance to support local businesses like Cero's.
After a few words, everybody rushed inside to get a new look at the place.
"I didn't expect this many people to show up," said Pam Bishop, co-owner.
A new program will deliver tips to new parents over their cell phones.
The Kansas Early Childhood Advisory Council and Kansas Project LAUNCH have awarded $40,000 in mini-grants to communities across the state. The money will help promote a texting campaign designed to provide parents with easy access to health information.
Project coordinator Cristi Cain says that the program's key demographic is low-income mothers, who are active texters and are more likely to be reached that way.
