Foster Family Day – Tyler Outreach Office

Foster families from the Tyler Outreach Office were treated to a Foster Family Day on October 20, 2012. Jeff and Connie Pinkerton hosted the event at WeHope Ranch.
“The day was fun for all ages and many special memories were made. The children enjoyed bounce houses, fun games with cool prizes and craft projects. The foster parents enjoyed the opportunity to socialize with one another and trade tips, tricks and stories. The wonderful food was enjoyed by all. The evening was topped off with smores around the campfire. It was a special day and a good time was had by all,” said Toni Boston, Director of the Tyler Outreach Office.
