First Stafford Meeting!

  Today, we had our first BWI of Central VA Stafford location meeting! We had an awesome turn out and pulled people from Spotsylvania, Fredericksburg, Stafford, and Woodbridge, in addition to leaders from Alexandria, Richmond, Centreville, and also Woodbridge. If you missed us today at the Porter Library, but live close to that location, we'd love to hear what times and places would work for you, because we'd like to get a monthly meeting on the calendar. We have a few members that are waiting to take their VBE test with BWI to lead the new meetings, but until then will be pulling leaders from both Richmond and our sister group in the DC/NoVA area.
   If you are interested in becoming a VBE to help lead meetings, please let us know! We'd love to have more, especially for our Monday meetings in Richmond. Ideally we'd be able to have a weekday and weekend meeting in both the Richmond and Stafford areas, so now would be a great time to step up if you've already been considering taking the plunge.
  Also, on Monday is our monthly weekday meeting for Richmond, and then the weekend meeting coming on the 26th. We are also going to be manning a booth at the Kids Expo at RIR on February 23rd, so you should come by and check us out. We'll have fun coloring pages for the kids and maybe even a craft! If you are interested in picking up a shift for the booth, please let us know. We'll be there from 10-4 and would to change shifts every hour. Hope you can join us!
  Lastly, we are looking at ordering shirts to be here in time for the expo and also for all our new members. Check out our facebook page this coming week for the mock-ups and to place your order. If you have friends in the DC, Hampton Roads, or even DelMarVa group (Virginia side) that you think might be interested, tell them to check by too. After all, Virginia is for babywearers :)
 Thanks again to all our friends who came out today, we can't wait to see you again soon!
