A Request For Support
by Kerry Cordy
"My son is turning 11 this year and out of every birthday invitation he has passed out he has only had one person come to his party in the last 6 years and the child stole from him. Nobody sends him cards and he is fascinated by them. He has Aspergers and his biggest problem is social interactions.I was hoping people could send him cards and possible put pictures of their favorite animal inside. His birthday is the 15th of September. He loves his cats, goats and his chickens. They bring more joy to him then people do. Please address cards to:

Several years ago, Frontier Girls from around the country supported a Penguin Frontier Girl named Amelia as she suffered from cancer. Frontier Girls proud to announce that Amelia is now an Otter entering the first grade and doing great. In her honor we would like to encourage all Frontier Girls to learn a bit more about childhood cancer and those it affects by earning the badge that was written for Amelia.
