The G.A.P.S. Organizational Meeting was held on August 25, 2012 at the Harvest Moon Restaurant at 535 Arch St. in Williamsport. We had 9 people attend. After nearly 3 hours of discussion, sharing of personal stories, questions and answers and a lovely dinner we concluded the meeting with a "Core Team" in place.
The "Core Team" consists of parents who've volunteered to assist with the management responsibilities of the group and to provide support to parents in need at monthly meetings.
During our monthly meetings core team members will be available to greet parents, they will be recognizable by their name tags.
Thank You to Alden and Shirley!
