Family Support Center

There is an awesome place here in Richfield called The Family Support Center of Central Utah. They offer a lot of services to the community like parenting classes, supervised visits, respite care etc. They also house children that have been removed from their homes until permanent arrangements have been made. They rely heavily on donations so for the past several years we have tried to help them out by building them a playhouse to use as a fundraiser. When individuals make donations to the Center they receive "entries" into the drawing. We start off the fundraisers at the Sevier Valley Home & Garden Shows each April and then do the actual drawing on the 4th of July at the Richfield City fesitivities. All of the materials and labor are donated by local businesses (including some of our favorite businesses in Utah County!) and contractors so 100% of the funds raised go directly to the Center. This is a picture of this year's playhouse. It's not too late to make a donation for a chance to win this one! Contact the Center at (435) 896-4798 or come to Richfield on the 4th! We have a great parade, festivities in the City Park - including man-made pools filled with live trout for the kids to try to catch, and fireworks! Of course, if you don't live in or near Richfield you'd have to find a way to get it to your house on your own! :)

You're still doing the playhouse thing, eh? That's great.

We broke down and started a blog too. Check out We have links on there to everybody else in the family that has a blog.

Awesome! I've been thinking about you and wondering how things are going. It will be nice to check up on you online. Love the playhouse! I wonder if I could win it for a potting shed! :)
