As we enter the holiday season, I always begin to take more time to think of what I am thankful for. This year is no exception. At FVRC we have several things to celebrate.
First, we are in the midst of celebrating 30 years in Chatham County. We have grown to be a strong and important service in this amazing and supportive community. Last week we took time to formally celebrate the strengths and support of our community with a party at the Fearrington Barn. It was and evening of music, food, dancing and fellowship for our community. More than 200 community members came out to be part of the evening. We are grateful for the organization and services that you have helped build in Chatham County.
Second, we are celebrating with one of our clients, who had her child returned to her—6 years after his father abducted him and took him out of the country. We are grateful for law enforcement and the DA’s Office who stayed on this case, worked to extradite the father, proceeded with the prosecution and helped support the return of this child. It was a long road and they stayed with it. We’ll continue to support the family as they work through the issues ahead.
And finally, I want to celebrate the amazing staff that I have the honor of working with every day. Their commitment to the work of making the Chatham County community safe and supportive for all its members, and to helping those suffering from the effects of violence inspire me every day. Thanks to each of them for their energy and vision.
