Athens-Limestone County Family Resource Center

The Athens-Limestone County Family Resource Center’s “Parents as Teachers” program is hosting a group meeting on Thursday, May 20, 2010.  The program offers free home-based parenting instruction for any family with children up to the age of 5 years. 

In addition to this service, “Parents as Teachers” hosts group meetings for parents on a variety of topics every other month.  Program Coordinator Stephanie Smith would like to invite Limestone County parents the May 2010 group meeting with special guest speakers Rebekah Davis and Rachel Petty. 

Smith explains that “Rebekah and Rachel have an amazing website all about couponing, stretching your money, and basically making smart financial decisions for you and your family.”  Rebekah and Rachel, also known as the “Two Thrifty Sisters,” host a couponing blog at  They will be speaking at the Family Resource Center to educate parents about stretching their dollars. 

Smith goes on to say “This is a great opportunity for families to fellowship with one another and learn something new.  It will be a very fun day with snacks, door prizes, and free childcare so we hope to have a lot of participation.” 

The Family Resource Center asks that attendees bring one baby item for their “Baby Bucks Boutique” to offset the cost of admission.  The meeting will be May 20 from 2 to 4 pm at 406 S. Jefferson St. (right next to Dub’s Burgers.) 

For more information on this event, Parents as Teachers, or the Baby Bucks Boutique program, you can call Stephanie Smith at 256-230-0880.
