Hello CYSN Members and Community Partners,
An exciting milestone has been achieved today – this is the 100th CYSN blog post since the launch of our new website in May 2013. There appears to be an awful lot to write about the ongoing activities and opportunities that exist among child, youth and family-focused organizations across Hastings and Prince Edward counties! Over 400 individuals are visiting our website every month. Be sure to let me know if there is something new going on in your organization that you would like to share with other HPE service providers. The CYSN blog is a quick and easy way for you to communicate with each other.
