Chick-Fil-A Visit

Today, First Lady Dianne Bentley joined many others across the country to support ChickFil-A. The lines were long but as always the staff was efficient in getting the food out to customers.

Thanks Chick-Fil-A for a great lunch and for standing strong for Christian values.

Brantwood Children's Home

This morning, First Lady Dianne Bentley spent time with the residents and staff at Brantwood Children's Home. As an adoptive parent and advocate for foster care and adoption, she is proud to support group homes that aid our children. There are 16 current residents who live on site and Mrs. Bentley was able to meet each of them as they showed her their rooms.

At Brantwood, not only is a home provided but a school is on site as well. For the first time this year, they will be able to accommodate students up to the twelfth grade as Brantwood helps them transition through all phases of their life.

This home depends on the help of volunteers and private groups to provide for their needs and the First Lady intends to work with them to make sure these residents are well cared for.
