Happy Camp Family Resource Center

by Judy Bushy

The Happy Camp Family Resource Center (FRC) is a busy place Monday through Thursdays from 9 to 5 for sure. We used to have both a Veterans of Foreign War and American Legion, and their auxiliary organizations but after they ceased to serve our veterans, the Sheriff’s office sent some help for Veterans through the Family Resource Center. The Veterans have a social hour at the FRC at 10 a.m. on Wednesdays.

The FRC also offers a Soup Sociall Mondays from 11 to 1 for those who desire some visiting social time over soup. They provide legal referrals, social security and child support help on the first Tuesday of the month. They offer Behavioral Health Service, playgroups for the youngsters, family and parenting classes.

On this Wednesday the FRC will have a Family Night and make Valentine craft. The Head Start Parent Meeting will also be included in this time on Wednesday from 5:15 to 6:30 p.m. at the FRC at 38 Park Way. The FRC is also asking for help from people with artistic, craft, and all kinds of other talents and abilities to lead groups. They just need the helping hands of those with those skills and abilities and to lead a group. Let them know what you’d like to participate in!! Their phone number is 493-5117.

Friday, Rochelle Randles told the story of a father and son were enjoying a day on the water at the Manatee River, not the Klamath. Their adventure became frightening when the boat hit an underwater object, overturned and throwing them into the water! A Boy Scout troop had set up camp within earshot of the accident, and you know Boy Scouts motto is to always be prepared.As soon as Caleb and another Scout heard the commotion, they headed to the scene by canoe, prepared with a medical kit and were even ready to perform CPR if needed. The river-savvy Scouts were able to help the boaters and emergency services arrived shortly after to take the father and son to the hospital.

You never know when you may have an opportunity to help out a neighbor! Be prepared!! How can you help?? Give Nadine a call at the Happy Camp Family Resource Center at 493-5117.
