Grandparents Pledge to Help Nevada City Youth

Grandmothers and Grandfathers are hitting the streets of Nevada City.  A campaign called The Grandmother Pledge launched election day 2012 calls for the need to have Grandparents frequent the historic downtown and interact with  many of our youth.
The initial launch of The Grandmother Pledge was celebrated by 60 participants on the Boardwalk on Commercial Street.  Now, a 90-minute workshop has been designed to give more people an overview of the groundbreaking program.
