Please note this is a revised schedule. For those of you who are thorough, you will note that we have canceled events previously scheduled for June 10th and July 10th (I will be out of town both dates)
We are working very hard behind the scenes to offer our families purposeful events that will enhance everyone’s life! It is exciting to know that we have many people from the community interested in volunteering! You will be glad to know that the volunteers are virtually “hand-picked” ! Due to insurance requirements, we must now do a background check on each volunteer to ensure quality people are involved in our children’s lives.
As always, if you have questions or concerns, please let me hear from you! I am here for you!
