March Monthly Meeting

 

Reverend Clifford Barnett, one of our co-chairs served as our host.  Turning the Wheel led our resiliency skills practice today.  I hope that inspires you to take advantage of one of their Creative Play Pop-Ups in the future!

We are excited to announce that we will be co-hosting a virtual screening of Resilience: The Biology of Stress and the Science of Hope with Resilient Brunswick and the Pender County Resiliency Task Force on April 28, 12:00-2:00 pm.  Nick Pylipyw from Cape Fear Collective will also join us to share key data on the local impact of trauma and toxic stress.  We will be inviting local government officials and business leaders, so if there are individuals you think we should add to our list, please send me an email with their information!
