JBTSandwichFlyerNext week, Senator Jennifer Bertino-Tarrant will be partnering with Representatives Manley and Cross to host an event for the many members of our community who find themselves not only still caring for their young children, but also caring for their aging parents.

'The Sandwich Generation' event will be held on Saturday, October 12th from 10-11:30am at the Edward Plainfield Outpatient Center (Building A, lower level) and will feature presenters Jennifer Lynch and Jim Horvath.

"Being the caregiver for our loved ones on both sides of this spectrum can be challenging and very often we neglect to take adequate care of ourselves," Senator Bertino-Tarrant said. "This event will provide information on the resources available to those of us challenged by being 'sandwiched' between care for our children and our parents, as well as assist attendees at finding the time to focus some of their energy on themselves."

Education roundtableLast month, Senator Bertino-Tarrant hosted two roundtable events in the 49th district.  The first roundtable event brought together superintendents from Will and Kendall counties in an effort to identify concerns related to mandates, training and how to best utilize their resources without receipt of adequate education funding from the state.  The group brainstormed for over two hours on ways to work more effectively and efficiently with the limited resources that they have.   Senator Bertino-Tarrant hopes to work in the upcoming legislative session to address some of the concerns of the group, in an effort to help all schools make the best use of their time, funding, directives and continuing education.
