Thank You To Everyone for a Fantastic Evening!
Your Support for our 13th Annual VPA/WSR Event is Appreciated!

Pictured are Greg Brooker, Angie Allred (Kindness for Kids) and volunteer Ruth Perkins.
Ruth sewed together a few hundred "Comfort Pillows"
for Sam and Angie Allred's project Kindness for Kids. These pillows are stuffed, put into boxes
and sent to hospitals across the U.S. for children. Federal Express ships for free. The 
pillow forms are sent all over to organizations that volunteer to stuff them and get them to
children in hospitals near to them.

Choose Respect

Many thanks to Governor Parnell for joining us for breakfast this morning and sharing his vision on the administration's "Choose Respect" initiative.

Speaking to a full house this morning the governor challenged groups like ours to continue our efforts to keep the conversation about domestic violence going.  Remember, sometimes a victim only needs someone they can trust to take a step towards getting help.  Our children need to hear that abusing someone else is never acceptable.
