Chapter Launch Success!
We had a great group of folks turn out at our Chapter Launch and Open House -- around 70 of them! People said the gathering was energizing. Everyone enjoyed snacks, a information table and some great door prizes, and they left with goodie bags of even more information from local holistic and mom/baby/family-centered businesses.
We want to extend a big thanks to all the businesses, practitioners and individuals who donated their products, services, time, energy and support to our chapter launch party. And thank you to the Alexandria Library System's Burke Branch for hosting our group!
We were so full we had to move from a circle to rows, and the library parking lot was at capacity! The next three meetings will be 2/26, 3/26 and 4/23. We'll keep the Burke Branch Library (in Alexandria) location (and the 7:15 time) for our fourth-Thursday-of-the-month meetings as scheduled through April and will consider other locations/times/days depending on the needs of our members.
Don't forget that the $5 off HMN membership promotion lasts just until the end of January. Join online at http://membership.holisticmoms.org and use the coupon code NEWYEAR. Once you join, you'll get onto our local chapter email loop where we will talk about meeting topics, dates, times and locations as well as other chapter activities. The local loop is also a great place to ask for advice and share tips on holistic living. Hope to see you there soon!
