To all our supporters, members and past members, business partners and folks who we support throughout the year, Parent Talk wishes a very happy holiday season.
Last Thursday was Thanksgiving, a day to reflect on the bounty of our lives with family and friends. It also marks the beginning of the holiday season, a time to prepare for our winter celebrations, decorate, bake cookies and buy gifts with Black Friday and Cyber Monday following closely.Tuesday has been coined Giving Tuesday, a day to reflect on community, giving to those organizations that make the world, and where we live, a better place.

This last year, Parent Talk welcomed 170 new families to our community, building friendships that will last a life time. We hosted numerous events and information fairs for our members and the larger community, supported area direct service organizations and generally had a fun time doing it.
For those of you who have been a part of the Parent Talk community, you may have already received our Annual Appeal in your mailbox. This is a reminder that we can’t accomplish what we do without the tireless efforts of scores of volunteers, the financial and other gifts that we receive from area businesses and your contributions.
Won’t you support Parent Talk this giving season? You can easily do so here. Your gift will help us continue to welcome new families in our community, support playgroups and social and support groups for families, present informative lectures, and build events that entertain and educate our youngest neighbors and their parents. And for a gift of $50 or more, we will thank you with a discount card to Legacy Place. Here is a list of sample discounts that will be available this coming year.
Thanks for all you do for Parent Talk and our community! Enjoy your holidays!
