The number of grandparents raising grandchildren is increasing every day, regardless of income, background, or race. Grandparents who take on this responsibility often need help meeting the financial, medical, educational, and emotional needs of their grandchildren and FACTOR and Fayette Senior Services have been collaborating to identify and serve this population in Fayette County.

On Nov. 1, these organizations will be sponsoring a county-wide program featuring an AARP film, "Lean On Me," with a discussion following the film. The morning session will be held at Fayette Presbyterian Church from 9:30 to 11 a.m. The evening session will be at First Baptist Church, Peachtree City, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. A nursery will be provided at both sessions; however, you will need to contact Betty Davis 770-487-9802 or Connie Gouge 770-460-9471 to RSVP.
