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.  http://relativesasparents.com

     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.
