All children deserve to be cherished and protected…not subject to abuse. We must be aware and available to help our children.  Child abuse destroys trust for a lifetime. It leads to long-term physiological issues, developmental problems, depression, and low self-esteem.  Child abuse occurs everywhere.  You could be the only source of aid to an abused child.  Please don’t turn a blind eye.                                                             [CAC  31st judicial district]

Van Buren County Republican Party – With this platform, we the Republican Party reaffirm the principles that unite us in a common purpose.  We believe in American exceptionalism. We believe the United States of America is unlike any other nation on earth. We believe America is exceptional because of our historic role — first as refuge, then as defender, and now as exemplar of liberty for the world to see. We affirm — as did the Declaration of Independence: that all are created equal, endowed by their Creator with inalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. …  [GOP Platform Preamble].  Meets on Second Monday of each month at the County Fair Agriculture Building at 6pm.

Van Buren County Democratic Party –  Preamble of the Democratic Party — Under President Obama’s leadership, and thanks to the hard work and determination of the American people, we have come a long way from the Great Recession and the Republican policies that triggered it. American businesses have now added 14.8 million jobs since private-sector job growth turned positive in early 2010. Twenty million people have gained health insurance coverage. The American auto industry just had its best year ever. And we are getting more of our energy from the sun and wind, and importing less oil from overseas.    ….                                         []

Caring for a person with Alzheimer’s disease at home is a difficult task and can become overwhelming at times. Each day brings new challenges as the caregiver copes with changing levels of ability and new patterns of behavior.

Research has shown that caregivers themselves often are at increased risk for depression and illness, especially if they do not receive adequate support from family, friends, and the community.

A Support group meets in Vanburen on the 4th Thursday of month
