So important to so many


To the Editor:

It will be so sad to see the Family Center lose its location at the high school in 2014. It is just very hard to imagine it being anywhere else.

I am a mother with young children and started coming to the Family Center for baby’s first year and then graduated to the open playgroups, potluck suppers, and endless other workshops and programming. I am currently serving on the parent advisory committee and volunteer there as well.

This is not just a place to come and bring my children, but a very welcoming and warm source of support, friendship and fellowship. I think all of the mothers and fathers who come for the programs here feel the same way. The location is part of the reason. It helps young families and new moms feel connected. Especially on a small Island, this resource is so important to so many.
