TLC Invites Families to Celebrate a Morning of Movement at Moody Park
Variety of Activities will be Featured
On Saturday, July 7, TLC Family Resource Center in Claremont is inviting families to join them for a celebration of movement at Moody Park in Claremont from 9 a.m. to noon. The event is free and open to the whole community.
Families will start the morning by using the hiking trails at Moody Park to reach the top. When they get there, they will find a variety of activities around the pavilion. There will be demonstrations from TLC staff of the curriculum used in Growing Great Kids, wellness checks by staff from Keady Family Medicine, tai chi with Valley Regional Hospital staff, demonstration from the National Institute of Modern Martial Arts, face painting, mindfulness exercises, balloon art, story time, lawn games, and much more.
On the Move is sponsored by TLC Family Resource Center with additional support from Keady Family Medicine, Valley Regional Hospital, Claremont Custom Framing, and an anonymous donor.
“The employees of Keady Family Practice are honored to partner with TLC on July 7th celebrating On the Move. My wife, Dr. Cecilia Keady, and I have personally worked with TLC over many years and have come to appreciate the tremendous work that this amazing organization does for the community. The dedicated people of TLC have assisted many families, helping keep children well cared for by providing much-needed resources and education. KFP is celebrating six years serving Sullivan County and has a strong belief in the TLC mission and is proud to sponsor this uplifting event,” said Jim Keady, part-owner of Keady Family Practice with his wife. “At KFP, we have a slogan “Putting the Care in Healthcare” we believe that TLC is putting the care in Claremont!”
TLC has been encouraging the community to be active and on the move as the agency continues to be on the move with new staff members and the addition of programs to support the LGBTQ+ community and those in addiction recovery.
“Last November, we celebrated 25 years in the community. Since then we have continued to be on the move as we find new ways to connect and engage with the community from holding Parents Cafés, offering parent peer support, in Newport and Claremont; adopting programs such as The Center for Recovery Resources; and hosting events like Rural PRIDE,” said Maggie Monroe-Cassel, executive director of TLC.
“In the fall, we will continue to be on the move with our plans for kinship support groups for grandparents raising their grandchildren as well as the introduction of the Miss Kendra program in the Newport kindergarten classes to support all the children but especially those who have high Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) scores,” she continued.
There is still room for organizations to come share information about their programs and an activity.

TLC Family Resource Center supports and strengthens all families, children, and youth with a wide range of free programs, support groups, education, and events.
