Refreshments will be available before the start of the program. At 7:00 p.m., featured presenter Georganne Bruce will speak about “Keeping the Lines Open: Communication Between Parents and Children.”
Ms. Bruce has been the Executive Director of the Exchange Club Family Support Center in Downey for 28 years. The Center provides counseling and support services for families at the facility and with home visits. Child abuse prevention programs are offered as well as parenting classes that are open to the public. At the conclusion of her presentation, Ms. Bruce will take questions from attendees.
After the program, Anne Allaire, Culver City School Board Member, will conduct the installation of this year’s Board Members. Current president Diana Hauptman will once again lead the Board. A short walk over to the Health Center will follow the presentations, with a tour of the facility. A plaque will be unveiled at the Center which honors the memory of Dr. Sarah Carpenter, former president of the Friends group, who passed away recently.
Everyone is welcome to attend the meeting. The program and installation are scheduled from 7:00 to 8:00 p.m., followed by a very short Friends Board Meeting. Refreshments will be served.
