We got our tickets! Did you get yours yet? It’s going to be a great night in support of a great cause. Thank you CAPA for organizing everything!
Great updates for CAPA! Thank you Christie!

Christie @ CAPA is here to help you keep your baby safe!
Having an Advancing Parenting bumper sticker on your car is so interesting! At stoplights you can watch drivers read the message and then desperately search for their phone so they can take a picture of it before the light turns green. This happens almost every time I drive my car! Presumably the photos are being shared on social media. If there’s a passenger or passengers someone will read it and comment, then everyone in the car reads it and conversations start up. It’s wonderful to see people discussing parenting! I’ve never seen people take pictures of bumper stickers before. It’s really a phenomenon! I think it’s because there’s a very real need for quality parenting information and people are pleased to see it displayed in this public way. Advancing Parenting is a Camarillo, CA nonprofit.

Just a reminder that Monday is the CAPA Annual Golf Outing. We love helping support this great organization that’s sole purpose is to help prevent abuse and neglect of the children of Hillsdale county. With that in mind, along with sponsoring this event, for everyone that takes a picture in front of our sponsorship and post the picture in the comments or on our business page, we will donate an extra $10 to CAPA. We will also donate a total of $20 for anyone that posts a picture AND comes in for an insurance quote (current State Farm customers are not eligible for this). Let’s have a great time on Monday and support this great organization! #likeagoodneighborstatefarmisthere **Pictures and quotes must be completed by 8/13/21 to be eligible**
