Thirty people shared a meal on Wednesday evening at the Intermountain Community Center at the first of seven Parent Cafes. The event is designed to honor families and support parents. Parents and children had dinner together prepared by Gepetto’s. Then, the children played while the parents shared parenting experiences and learned some valuable lessons from each other.
Parent Cafes are being held all over the country in the interest of building strong families and strong communities. The Community Center is able to offer these free events to families as a result of a generous grant from the Shasta County Sheriff’s Department Asset Forfeiture Fund.
“We are thrilled to be able to provide these free events for families in our region and are grateful to the Sheriff’s Department for their support”, said Denise Luntey and Shaylene Herndon, Program Hosts.
The next Parent Café is scheduled for November 14, 2016 at 5:30.
