A Note from Branden Plank (Long Island Facilitator)
At the Long Island Teen and Adult Groups:

Topics for the year will be discussed.

Last month we had a great teen meeting. It was our first meeting at the Mid-Island JCC. The kids felt welcomed and participated and said they would come again, so Jodi (board trustee, parent and educator) and I look forward to bigger and even better things concerning the teens. Next door was parent group (with Leslie, parent, AHA board trustee) was a success as well. 
Let's keep it up!
See you all Saturday!
