April has been a busy month! Our chapter has four regular meetings scheduled plus a training day for potential VBEs! We can’t wait for our volunteer pool to expand so we can reach even more caregivers in more communities. We recently asked our facebook followers where they were located and the response was huge. There is such a need for additional local meetings in the Lakeshore area and throughout the Fox Valley. I am excited for future chapter growth and to help new chapters form to reach these communities on the edges of our coverage areas.
Are you interested in starting meetings in your town? While we can’t travel everywhere, or even to half of the communities we want to, we can help you learn through our facebook group and through our centralized meetings. We currently hold monthly meetings in Menasha, Appleton, Green Bay, and now Marinette. Come to a meeting or three, get a feel for our organization, and talk to one of our current VBEs about volunteering your time to help other caregivers discover the benefits of babywearing!
We will start scheduling social events, in addition to our instructional meetings, as the weather improves. These will be less structured and feel more like a playdate. We will still help you with your carrier(s) as needed, but will focus more on fun. Zoo trip anyone? Comment below to tell us what fun outing you would be interested, or to offer constructive criticism on a recent meeting.
