January 2017 Update

Dear Friends of Sadie Rose,

How are we already halfway through January 2017?

I had some personal obligations that had taken attention away from SRF at the end of 2016, but am delighted and excited to be back on track, sleeves rolled up, and ready for 2017.

I have updated our newsletter page to include our more recent newsletters. I have included a PDF file of our 2017 Support and Events Calendar here. Please feel  free to print this out so you can plan accordingly for the ones you’d like to attend.… Read the rest

Unique Opportunity for SRF Families

Please read for a rare opportunity for our local families! If you do participate, we’d LOVE some photos for the newsletter and maybe some thoughts about what this meant to you!

The following comes from Shenandoah Valley Regional Airport. ” I wanted to reach out to your organization regarding an opportunity with a non-profit organization called Fly-Hope-Dream. Like The Sadie Rose Foundation, this organization was founded after the terrible loss of a child with the goal of offering support, hope and once in a lifetime flight experiences. Fly-Hope-Dream is beginning a coast-to-coast journey on Thursday and we have been told they will be at the Shenandoah Valley Regional Airport at some point this weekend (depending on how long they are at the first few stops) and hope to offer flights onboard a beautiful 1942 Stearman bi-plane to families in our community who have experienced the loss of a child.Read the rest
