Mothers invited to join 'the Circle' for support

SPRINGFIELD A resource and respite place for moms, "the Circle" gathers at the Unitarian Universalist Society from 10 a.m. to noon the third Saturday of every month in rooms 22 - 23, second floor; childcare is provided. An open house taking place Feb. 16 is free of charge.

"The Circle" is a group of mothers and caretakers who come together to meet and support one another in small discussion groups, a time to listen and be listened to, an opportunity to learn "you are not alone" in the challenges that come with being a child caregiver. Cooperation and consensus are encouraged.

For more information about "the Circle" or to register for childcare, contact Becca Bryer at 598-8598 or
