Our hearts are heavy during a normally joyful time of year. Many of our families are in the hospital, the tragic loss of life in Newtown, CT… But, we are looking forward to a new year filled with HOPE!

We have 2 events in January:

1. Our monthly meeting on Saturday, January 12th at 11:30a.m. at Shady Grove. I will need a head count by Wednesday, January 9th as they do not take reservations but will accommodate us. I have invited some local health care providers so they can learn more about what we do.

2. Thursday, January 17th is our Augmentative Communication/iPad Information session with Lesli Bassford and Betsy Furler. They will talk one-on-one with families about communication, funding for devices, apps you can download, etc. We are so fortunate to have their expertise. This event will be at Russell’s Bistro at 6 p.m. Children are welcome but it may be easier to talk to Betsy and Lesli if you are not distracted ;-). Seating is limited and we are getting close to capacity….so please let me know by Jan. 3rd if you are interested: mary@urourhope.org or mparkerpt@aol.com. After that we will offer the remaining spots to other health care providers and the public.

We hope your holidays are filled with love, healing and peace. We are very excited for what the New Year brings, and can’t wait to see you on January 12!
