Meetings and Events

Our official meetings are free and open to anybody – we frequently have dads, expectant parents, grandparents, nannies, and all kinds of other caregivers in attendance!  Babies, toddlers and older children are all welcome.  One of our greatest resources is our large lending library, which is present at all official meetings. You can read our lending policies and see which carriers are available here.

Our social events are usually free, but there may sometimes be an admission fee at certain locations such as community pools. If applicable, we will provide detailed information about any fees within the event description.

Parker Lane United Methodist Church has generously offered us the use of their fantastic gym space for free! In return, we are asking for members to please try to bring items for them to sell in their thrift store. It’s right across the parking lot from the event space, and if they aren’t open we have permission to leave goods right on the porch. By doing this, we can help to offset the cost of cooling and lighting the space during our meetings. Thank you!
