DESTINY E. GRADUATION

On June 14, 2019, Destiny E. graduated from Forest City High School. This was a great accomplishment for Destiny as she worked very hard to obtain her high school diploma. Although she was accepted at both Keystone College and Bloomsburg University for fall semester 2019, Destiny has chosen to take a year off and enter the work field in order to decide on what career path she would like to take in the future. While at Forest City High School Destiny was very active in extra-curricular activities. She was a member of the soccer and ski teams, SADD (Students Against Destructive Decisions), Drama Club, Art Club and Chorus. She also worked part-time at Elk Mountain Ski Resort. Destiny really enjoyed being of the Drama Club with her favorite play being Shrek where she played two separate characters. She was part of the Three Blind Mice and was also fairy princess.

Best of luck to Destiny and the rest of the Class of 2019 as they move onto their next big adventure!!

WALLENPAUCK BOY SCOUT TROOP 229

Wallenpauck Boy Scout Troop 229 recently donated Birthday Bags to the clients in our foster care program.  Each bag contained party supplies, a cake mix and frosting as well as a baking pan.  The members of Troop 229 collected these supplies as part of their Peace Project for which they will receive a special crest to go around their Messenger of Peace badges on their uniforms.  The boys donated 10 bags for boys and 10 bags for girls that will get distributed throughout the year in both the Scranton and Honesdale foster homes. 

PUPPY PAWLOOZA

On September 23, 2018 the Shawnee Mountain hosted ‘The Puppy Pawlooza’. They invited pet related vendors and charities to set up tents and tables selling local goods, sharing information, and celebrating all things pet related. Most attendees brought dogs to participate in a costume parade, agility courses, various competitions, and pet performances.

KidsPeace was invited to display a table which presented information on the services that we offer such as foster care, adoption, S.I.T.E., and suicide prevention programs. The KidsPeace Family Resource Specialist and Intern assisted children and adults in decorating dog bandannas with the KidsPeace logo on them that were a huge hit.

You can make a difference in the life of a child.
