Get Involved!

Some of us get together once each month.  We meet to eat, plan, and catch up with what’s going on in each other’s lives.  Each month our meeting is at a different member’s house - so sometimes we’re in the Lowville area, sometimes Watertown, and sometimes Black River.  People come when they can, and we often bring our children so that they can play together.  We write and send minutes of the meeting to anyone who normally attends.   It’s a nice group, and I find that I look forward to the meetings. 

     Each year our little group attempts to provide opportunities for others in our area  to meet, support, and socialize (we understand that not everyone wants to do the monthly meeting thing). 

     We’re proud of the things we’re doing.  Check out our Newsletter for all the details!
