At our meeting this morning we heard about a great organization in our area called Relatives as Parents.  This is a 501(c)(3) non-profit that exists to strengthen the safety net resources and support for Idaho children being raised by a relative. 

     The majority of relatives raising children are grandparents, so their primary focus is on the senior population's diverse needs when faced with raising a young child at a time in life when they are preparing for retirement.

     Special guests included two of the Lakes students who went on the Schweitzer ski adventure this year.  

     Our Sunrise Flower Princess, Jaime Arnold, received a cap decorated with posies from Mark Beardsley.
