I trust that you have had a safe and happy Christmas and start to the New Year.
After a busy couple of months following the birth of my third child and adjusting to being a family of 5, I think that I am finally starting to organise myself and get Marvellous Mums up and running for another year.
2008 saw the group meet in a new venue, the Chelsea Heights Hotel, and 2009 also brings some exciting news... another upgrade!
I am excited to announce that MM has a new 'base' to call home.
'Fitstart 4 Kids' is a small play centre in Braeside that has just changed management. Emily Quenette is a mum to 3 boys and a fitness instructor. Her passion is to see Fitstart 4 Kids impact the community and run many events that include not only a variety of kids dance and fitness classes but adult classes, personal training, kiddie clubs and family entertainment nights.
After meeting her and discussing various options, I have booked a private room for MM to meet fortnightly on a Monday morning from 11am.
The format for MM will include:
11am- Arrival. Children can play in our private area that will be filled with heaps of toys and sporting equipment.
11.30-12pm Morning tea/Lunch served. Platters will be ordered prior and brought to our room (possibly sandwiches, fruit, cheese, muffins etc)
12pm onwards- Children can continue to play while mums socialise, drink coffee and eventually decide that it's time to go home!!
Marvellous Mums will be fundraising to cover the costs of the room hire. A $5 donation for food (per person over 18 months old) will be encouraged. The following dates have been booked for 2009 beginning on February 16th with our first get-together.
March 2nd, 16th, 30th
May 4th, 18th
June 1st, 15th
July 13th, 27th
August 10th, 24th
October 5th, 19th
November 2nd, 16th, 30th
I am in the process of booking a fundraising shopping spree tour for Saturday May 2nd (TBC). Please start thinking about who you can invite.
The new-look website is under construction.
PLEASE let me know if you plan to attend on Monday Feb 16th so I can order enough lunch for you and your kids (for directions on how to get there, go to http://www.whereis.com/vic/braeside/canterbury-rd?id=52CC821C22A35E.)
Look forward to hearing from you,
