Join us for some education, sharing, and fun at the monthly meeting of the Grandparents Raising Grandchildren Support Group on Wednesday, December 19, at 11 a.m. at the O. P. Owens Agriculture Center, Highway 72 West, Lumberton.
According to Christy Strickland, family and consumer sciences Extension agent with the Robeson County Center of the North Carolina Cooperative Extension Service, the support group meets on a monthly basis and is open to all grandparents raising their grandchildren.
