Our young families are included in community events that are fun and build friendships. Informal networks need to be strong in local communities as we have few programs or services. Grandparents and other care-givers are recognized and appreciated. Local businesses try to be more family friendly and we have an annual business award. Skill-sharing sessions encourage local people and parents to share skills with other parents in a fun, relaxed way. We advertise on local media and the community appreciates the activities available for young families.
