A Special Edition to Highlight our 25th Anniversary Events!
It always feels a bit like a big switch has been turned off around Labor Day in New England. The cool air wakens us in the morning. The colorful leaves on the ground remind us, in the words of George Martin, that "winter is coming."

And yet things are gearing up as well. School is starting. Programming is picking up. AND, TLC Family Resource Center has lots of upcoming events to bring our 25th anniversary year to a close!

Hope you can join us for any and all!

threeAdverse Childhood Experiences
 Whether you were able to join us for one of our screenings of the film Resilience or wished you could have been there, this event will bring you into an important conversation. The 90 minute lunch discussion will be led by Bill Brown, owner of Confluence Behavioral Health in Thetford, VT. Bill has worked extensively in the field of stress and how it can change our physical and mental health. Most importantly, he has deep experience in helping people identify and manage the impact that Adverse Childhood Experiences have in their lives. Bill will lead this discussion which will help us delve deeper into this community discussion that we began in the spring. This event is co-sponsored by Turning Points Network in honor of their 40th anniversary and TLC Family Resource Center in honor of their 25th anniversary. The discussion will take place at the Claremont Savings Bank Community Room in Claremont on September 22, noon-1:30. It is free. Lunch will be provided for those who pre-register. Register here.
