Thank You From The Nolans

Sorry this is so late, but I was having trouble posting to this site--thanks, David, for fixing it for me!

Shawn and I just wanted to thank everyone who's given us such a warm welcome when we moved to Taylor last December. We really feel "at home" and it's truly helped us with our transition from Cincinnati.

Also, thanks so much to everyone who came out for the Front Porch Party that we co-hosted. Shawn and I will have another one, sometime in the fall, and I'll post that information when we're sure of a date.

I will have two spaces open this fall. I wanted to ask you to please pass this on to anyone in your circle of friends or neighbors, who might be interested in a full day program. I will be happy to email them information about my program and meet with them, if they think we might be a good match, after reading my material.

I appreciate you passing this on. Bj Richards/Bj;s Kids

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!

Thursday, July 29th at 7 p.m.

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!
