Our Family Encounter May 2022 Newsletter 

Happy Spring! 

For Christmas last year, my son thought having bunnies would be a fantastic addition to our household. I got a mating pair of Rex rabbits. What a treat to have five new bunnies join us on May 1st. They have been growing so much and they love the fresh grass and flowers. What a wonderful way to bring extra joy this spring.

Our Family Encounter has been getting phone calls from people around the community looking for ways they can be available for their loved ones and neighbors. Many are leaning on their family members to help with the changing aspects of our times: food, housing, care, finances, community events. Sometime the best place to start is to learn about what services are available in our community.  

If you are looking for some things to consider in June, here are some upcoming events I will be attending which might be of interest to you. Consider stopping by or attending to learn about resources available to you and your loved ones.
