Most of our members are parents – some have young children, some have grown children and grandchildren. A few Board members have affiliations with other community organizations. Others became involved after participating in Family Center activities.

The Board normally meets on the third Monday of each month, throughout the year. Meetings are held in the Family Center meeting room beginning at 4pm and usually last from 1 – 2 hours. Meetings are informal and enjoyable.

  • Bring a spirit of collaboration and resource sharing to monthly meetings

  • Remain flexible and creative in governing Family Center operation.
