Celebrating 5 years in style!

What a fabulous party we had to celebrate five years of the Arlington/Alexandria chapter of Holistic Moms Network!

Thank you to all the many volunteers, exhibitors and donors to our raffle and silent auction!

And thank you to all the members, former members, and visitors who came out to support us!

We enjoyed:

family yoga with one of our longtime members, Sylvia, who teaches at  Lil Omm, Sun & Moon Yoga, and Saffron

live music with Marsha Goodman-Wood

 refreshments provided in large part by MOM's Organic Market, along with South Block Juice & Smoothies, MTO Kombucha, Nourish Market, and Z-Pizza
 a raffle with tons of great prizes and a silent auction with many wonderful services to bid on

goodie bags (donated by Whole Foods Market Arlington) that were filled with coupons and discounts from local area vendors (including Studio Body Logic, My Whole Self, Mind Your Body Oasis and Portrait Playtime) along with samples of Divine Mama bars, Go Chews from Momme Meals, and muscle rubs from Acupuncture Alexandria

conversations with over 25 practitioners and businesses, and lots of time to play and socialize.

Thank you to FUMC for hosting and to everyone who joined in the fun.

Please join us for
  • our special daytime meeting on April 2 with Shep Saltzman on "Thyroid Health" at 10:30 at Shirlington Library and 
  • our April evening meeting on April 24 (a week later than usual because of spring break) with Dr. Rene Hackney on "Siblings and Birth Order" at AUMC, 716 S. Glebe Road. This will be our last meeting at AUMC, which is undergoing changes. Please let us know if you have another meeting site in mind for us!
