February 28th Meeting

Thursday, February 28, 2013 from 9:30 am to 11:30 am is our next meeting.  Our speakers for this meeting are from EFMP (Exceptional Family Member Program) at Ft. Lewis.  They will be sharing information on the area and how to help your kids.  It will be military-family focused, but I think we’ll all get some valuable info.  Our craft will be an Easter cross.  Can’t wait to see you then!


Valentine’s Day!!!

Our next meeting is on February 14, 2013, from 9:30 to 11:30 am.   This week we will be focusing on marriage and having a delicious cookie party.  Please bring your favorite cookies to share – store bought or homemadehearts

Service Project

As mentioned at our last meeting, we have a new service project for the Spring.  This term we are collecting donations for Sistercare, Inc.  Sistercare is a program of services for battered women and their children residing in Fairfield, Kershaw, Lexington, Newberry and Richland counties in South Carolina.  Domestic violence is a far larger problem than most people realize. And unfortunately we see more and more women and children who need our help.  Sistercare’s services include: Children’s Services, Community Counseling Services, Community Education and Awareness, Court Advocacy, Emergency Shelters, 24 Hour Service Telephone Line, Shelter Follow-Up Program, Transitional Housing, Hispanic Outreach Services, and much more.  Donations can be given to Brittany Sirmon at any of our meetings.
