Grandparent Support Group

Contributed by Betsy Woodin

Thanks to the volunteers that helped the children at the Mat-Su Grandparent Support Group make beautiful sugared Easter Eggs and Baskets and to Tonya Storm for knitting hats for the group. 

The local Grandparent Support Group is part of the Volunteers of America Grandfamilies Program and collaborates with the Wasilla Alaska Center for Resource Families. They meet twice a month at the Community Room next to Turn-a-Leaf Thrift Store in Wasilla. 

The 1st Friday meeting is at 10:30AM-12PM for adults only to plan activities. The 2nd Saturday meeting is from 1PM-3PM and the adults and kids enjoy snacks and fun activities together. During the summer we meet outdoors and have BBQs and picnics when weather allows. 

For more information call Rozann the local coordinator at 376-7322 or Betsy at ACRF 376-4678.
