"My favorite weather is bird-chirping weather."

- Terri Guillemets



We did it! Just found out that we got the DDA and Health Department county grants this next year for Parent to Parent and Senior Family. It is because

of all of your connections, hard work and commitment to helping families across the state.

Thank you and thanks for all you do. This is a nice Mother and Father's Day present.


Take care and enjoy the summer,



P.S. Happy Father's Day to all the wonderful Dads. I know that I could not have been as involved with Alexa and Parent to Parent/Arc of WA without the support from Terry all of these years. You guys are swell.
