Words cannot describe the joy and excitement I had in hosting the fall open house. What an honor it is to host an event that is needed in our community. Connecting to the community is important, parents need support and engaging activities to keep their little’s busy. The clubs and organizations who had tables are all amazing and I invited them to share what amazing programs they have.

Just in case you missed the event, I want to share who had tables at the open house and give a big thank you to them as well. The event was held at the Waldorf West Library where over 120 guests attended; 65 of which were moms, dads and grandparents. The first 50 families were given swag bags filled with mum-mum toddler snacks, a educational magnet by Lauri toys and coupons for Shaklee Kid vitamins. Three door prizes were also given away provided by Kings Dominion, Wee Bean Coffee and Lauri Toys.
