Crosslake partnership celebrates two years


Kinship Partners honors Tim and Sandy Thorpe, Crosslake, and Katey Hanson as its Match of the Month. The partnership who just celebrated its second anniversary also includes Prancer, the family dog.

Katey turned 15 last summer so the Thorpes have experienced different levels of life with a teenager. They get together weekly, having dinner and enjoying conversations, storytelling, playing games, watching movies and listening to music on YouTube.
