Why Join a GRG Circle?

What grandparents say about the Circles:

"It helps to meet other grandparents who have the same feelings and questions that I have, a must go groups!"

"The facilitators are wonderful, kind, caring, of good spirit, and concerned for how and what they do."

"It really helps, you are not alone and it gives you the opportunity to talk about your real feelings (good and bad)."
