PARTNERS WITH PARENTS is a group of people representing a variety of social service agencies as well as local parents. This group is once again sponsoring an evening of fun and education for parents and children on October 2 starting at 5:30 p.m. at Sharbot Lake High School . This is an interactive evening that begins with a light dinner after which the families will participate in fun, non-competitive challenges at various sites throughout the school. It is designed for families with children 10 and younger and has a literacy theme to each game. You must pre-register by calling the Ontario Early Years Centre, The Child Centre at 613-279-2244.

UNITED WAY CAMPAIGN: Each year the United Way for Kingston , Frontenac, Lennox and Addington launches a massive fundraising campaign with the proceeds going to a host of social service agencies. This year’s campaign is hoping to raise $2,525,000. It is important for people in North and Central Frontenac to understand that a significant amount of money is invested in this community by the United Way . Northern Frontenac Community Services is fortunate enough to be a United Way agency and the Family Counselling program is funded by them. The Ontario Early Years Centre, The Child Centre often receives funding through the Success by Six program operated through the United Way . Kairos Counselling Services which provides a significant amount of counselling in this area for people with addictions problems also receives funding from the United Way as does the CNIB as well as many others. There are a significant number of individuals in this area who would not be able to access counselling and support without the United Way 's success. We would ask that you support this campaign in what ever way you possibly can to ensure that as a community we can remain strong and help those who most need it. It is estimated that 1 in every 3 people will at some point need the help of an agency funded by the United Way .
