Come To The Table 2013 - Amazing Results!
Our 9th Annual Come To The Table held April 6th at the Hart’s Hill Inn was a success beyond our wildest imaginations. We made many changes to the format this year and wondered how our volunteers and attendees would receive them. The response was overwhelming. We had record attendance and participation this year.
We are thrilled to announce that our 10th Annual Come To The Table will be held on Saturday, April 5th. So mark your calendars for one of the Mohawk Valley’s Premiere Event Fundraisers.

Peacemaker Expands to Include Madison County
The Peacemaker Program, Inc. is now the court-designated provider of Dispute Resolution services to all of Oneida and Madison Counties. Previously, Peacemaker was the Community Dispute Resolution Center for Oneida County only. New York State Unified Court System Office of Alternative Dispute Resolution and Court Improvement Programs awarded Peacemaker the opportunity to run the agency through a grant application. Community mediation and family mediation programs are now available to the residents of Madison County through The Peacemaker Program located in Utica, NY. The coverage includes cases currently engaged with family court, small claims court, and municipal courts.
"The staff of The Peacemaker Program, Inc. is very excited to bring dispute resolution services to the residents of Madison County. We have been providing services to Oneida County residents for almost 15 years. We look forward with great anticipation to working with the people of Madison County to provide a means for peaceful and collaborative problem solving." Steve Robinson, Executive Director
Mediation is a process where participants have an opportunity to find their own solutions with the help of a neutral third person.
