The Fox Valley Adoption Support Group has provided invaluable support for adoptive families for over 20 years. Its board and volunteers hosted many activities including adult education seminars, children's holiday parties at Halloween, Christmas, and Valentine's Day, Bowling and Fishing Family Parties, Summer Picnics, a Playgroup, and Progressive Dinners for Adoptive Parents. In recent years, the demands on adoptive parents and the needs of current adoptive families have changed. There has been a lack of volunteers to fill the leadership roles of the group. Therefore the former board members decided to disband the Fox Valley Adoption Support Group in the form it was with board members, dues, and regularly scheduled activities, effective January 31, 2007. The monies in the treasury have been allocated as follows: $375.00 donated to Camp Pride Korea, $375.00 donated to Hands Around the World, and $50.00 to cover expenses of our volunteer webmaster who will maintain the website and email list as an adoption forum.
