With the Olympic torch extinguished and Labor Day just around the corner, we hope you’ve enjoyed a relaxing and fun summer. The 2012-2013 Board of Directors is up and running and planning for the year. We’re gearing up for a busy fall with lots of events planned already.
Two of our most popular support groups will kick off their events in September; Career Moms will be hosting a family picnic on September 9th, and the first Moms’ Night Out gathering will be September 25th.
For the kids, we’ve got lots planned in September from a Music Together class on September 13th to a birthday party/movements class for varying ages on September 15th. Get outside and enjoy the fall weather by joining us for Hikes for Tykes on September 22nd at the Ridge Hill Reservation. Parent Talk is also supporting the Walk for Walker on September 23rd and we’d love to see you there.
October 18th brings our first lecture of the year given by the Sleep Lady, Kim West. And, hopefully you’ve already marked your calendars for our fall Clothing, Toy, and Equipment sale set for Saturday October 20th. Not sure what to do with your husband and kids while you’re shopping the sale? Send them over to the playspace for “Reptiles Rock” where kids will have the opportunity to get personal with all their favorite reptiles.
Of course, since Parent Talk is a volunteer run organization, none of the above events would be possible without our member support. To be able to continue to offer the amazing array of programs and benefits that you’ve come to appreciate as Parent Talk members, we need everyone to participate. We have both big and small volunteer opportunities, and we encourage you to get involved – whether it’s assisting in making phone calls to welcome new members, joining the marketing committee to help promote our events, joining the lecture committee to help plan future lectures, or volunteering at an event, the organization can’t continue without your help! If you’re interested in volunteering, feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll help you find something that fits your schedule and interests.
Be sure to check the calendar for all the information on the upcoming activities and lectures, and enjoy the last weeks of summer!
