August is here and our "40 Days of Family Fun" is in full swing! From sunflower fields and s'mores to Storytime and STEM , we are covering it all. How are you and your family enjoying what's left of summer?

Even in the face of fun, we know that as schools begin to unveil plans for September, parents may be struggling with what to do. As you make these emotional choices, please remember that you are not alone- our free parenting groups are here for you when the weight of the world seems insurmountable.

Lastly, during our 40th anniversary year, EPIC is celebrating every kind of hero. Who is yours? We want to know. We are collecting nominations for Heroes now through August 31, and winners will be honored throughout our annual Heroes celebration this fall. Click here to submit your nomination!

Stay safe, stay well, and as always, know we are here for you.

Tara N. Burgess, Executive Director
and the entire EPIC team
