Join us on Monday, January 22, 2018
at Emmanuel Episcopal Church at 6:30 PM
for a light dinner and an informational meeting to talk about organizing a group in Shenandoah County that can provide support for Grandparents raising their Grandchildren (or extended family raising children)! This first meeting is to work out the details of the group to include a place to meet monthly, childcare options, guest speakers, and potential sponsors. It is our hope to host a monthly, meeting starting in February or March that will include a light meal, childcare for the family, and a guest speaker that will provide information on pertinent topics that could provide potential support and information to the grandparents (families).
If you are interested or you know of someone who may enjoy participating in a group such as this, please let me know and I will be happy to add them to our invitation list. We invite anyone who is willing to provide ideas, assistance or would be interested in sponsoring this group. If there would be bad, winter weather, our alternate date is Monday, January 29, 2018. Happy New Year!!!!
