Tonight's meeting began with a presentation on behalf of R.I. to Past-President Donovan for the increase in membership we showed last year. Pictured below President John presents PP Donovan his award.
Our speaker this evening was Erin-Lee Marcotte. Erin is a manager with Lanark-Leeds-Grenville Family and Children's Services. In a very informative presentation, Erin took us through the steps and criteria used by family services when they intervene on behalf of a child. She indicated some of the sources the agency uses both to project children and assist families as well as pointing out the everyone is legally obligated to report suspected abuse of a child.
