What is Come to The Table?
Come To The Table is a fundraiser for The Peacemaker Program, Inc. Designers create unique, themed creations that are on display and auctioned off at Saturday night Gala Event at the Hart's Hill Inn. Many designs start with the basic idea of a dining table dressed for a party. However, the sky is the limit, and the designers get more creative every year! Some designers take a whimsical approach, and load their tables with a variety of gift certificates that follow a theme. A few designers pull out all the stops, creating elaborate displays that could outfit an entire room of your house or a luxurious outdoor patio space. The designs can be purchased outright, or through the silent auction that takes place throughout the event. In addition to the designs, there is a sit-down dinner, dancing, musical entertainment, giveaways, and more!
2014 will be the tenth year for Come to The Table in the Mohawk Valley. The Gala Auction will take place on Saturday, April 5th at Hart's Hill Inn in Whitesboro, NY. For more information or tickets, please use the links to the right or call 315-724-1718 today!
Combat to Clarity
Training Veterans to Help Each Other
Military veterans and their families have the same disputes as all people, but the issues are often amplified due to circumstances unique to them; post traumatic stress, traumatic brain injury and long-term separation from family. "We will train veterans to mediate for veterans and provide skill training in partnership with veterans' organizations in Oneida and Madison counties." said Steve Robinson, Executive Director.
"Combat to Clarity: Collaborative Problem Solving with and for Military Veterans" is being funded by a ten thousand dollar a year grant from the Interest On Lawyers Accounts (IOLA) administered through the New York State Dispute Resolution Association. The grant will fund program development and implementation to provide no-charge mediation training, services and conflict resolution skill development to military veterans and families.
We Are Your CDRC
Madison County: We Are Your Community Dispute Resolution Center
Beginning in April of 2013 The Peacemaker Program is the court-designated provider of Dispute Resolution services to Madison County, New York. Our Community Mediation and Family Mediation programs are now available to the residents of Madison County. This includes cases currently engaged with family court, small claims court, and municipal courts. In fact, any dispute, whether or not a court is involved, can now be resolved with the help of The Peacemaker Program's highly trained and certified mediators.
Divorce Mediation offers an opportunity to help separating or divorcing couples communicate, building an agreement that works for them. The process is absolutely confidential, and nobody will force you into anything you don't want to agree to. You and you spouse can make informed decisions, consult experts, and settle the issues that are important to you.
Not only is this process easier on you and your children, it is also available at a substantially lower cost than the traditional approach of having attorneys negotiate for you. Click here for more information.
