Babysitters Committee Meeting
Do you need a babysitter? Are you available to babysit?

A kick-off meeting is scheduled for Thursday, October 23 at 7 p.m. It will be held at the ESDA Building, 201 N. Second St. (behind IGA).

The purpose of this meeting is to begin organizing a list of babysitters for Crestlake families. We are looking for input from parents with children that can babysit and from parents that need a babysitter.

Please come with your ideas, suggestions and questions. We will brainstorm ideas about how a list of babysitters can be carefully created and safely distributed.

See the meeting notice at for more information.
