February 5 & 6, 2016 Gold Star Parents Retreat.
Gold Star Parents were invited to an all-inclusive weekend that included
lodging, meals, activities and worship.
Being our first year, we nor the parents new what to expect.
However, the weekend surrpassed way beyond our expectations.
These wonderful parents shared their stories, laughed and cried together and most of all, left with bonding friendships with
others that understand their pain.
We look forward to growing this event and providing a healing weekend
for more and more parents every year.
Thank you Justin Elliot for your inspiring story and parents Mike & Debbie for the baskets and help all weekend.
