At Unity Temple, Parent Cafes for the Community, Tuesday, September 14th, 7 to 9 pm

Dear Community Leaders:

The first of a series of Parent Cafes for the Community will kick-off Tuesday, September 14th, 7 to 9 pm at Unity Temple in Oak Park. These cafes, organized by the Oak Park River Forest Parent Action Committee (PAC) and Oak Park Township Youth Services, are designed to foster parent-to-parent conversations on the challenges teenagers face in Oak Park and River Forest. Parents and other concerned citizens are invited. All opinions and solutions are welcome!

Please post the attached flyer in your workplace/organization and please forward to anyone and everyone who would benefit from attending. Thank you for your support and help in getting the word out regarding this exciting grassroots initiative!

Parent Cafes organize this Thursday at 7 pm

We are the Village it Takes…

Make an impact on the well-being of our kids and this community by joining a grassroots effort
initiated by the Parent Action Committee (formed in cooperation with the Citizens’ Council Subcommittee on Teen Alcohol and Substance Use.)

Our hope and vision involves the creation of Parent Cafes –

Parent to parent get-togethers that promote open and frank conversation on relevant topics in our teens’ lives.

We need your talents, energy and influence!

If you are interested in helping get these Parent Cafes up and running – either by leading a group or hosting an event – please come to our first orientation meeting on:

Thursday, July 29th at 7 p.m.
Oak Park Township Youth Services
105 S. Oak Park Avenue, Oak Park

(The meeting will begin promptly at 7 pm. Parking is available in the Township lot.)

Keeping our kids safe requires coming together as a community. Please join us!

Hi Yall! and help!

looking for computer help. Has anyone taken a good class anywhere? I would love to be my own IT guy without accidentally erasing all my data, programs and drivers at once.

Thanks and happy new year!
