A new Grandparents' Support Group has formed for grandparents who are raising grandchildren. The group meets the second and fourth Wednesday of each month at 6 p.m. in the parlor. Are you raising your grandson or granddaughter? This probably wasn't in your greater plan, and you are not alone. Do you feel frustrated, isolated or out of your element? Rev. Jim Rowland will facilitate the group, which is open to all. Come meet other grandparents who are in the same position as you. Share stories, concerns, questions, joys, second chances and hope with others. If you aren't raising your grandkids, but know someone who is, please invite them to be a part of this group. This is an ongoing support group and is open to all in the community. Bring a friend.
