Dear NFP Meetup families,
Hello! We hope everyone has had a great summer. We really enjoyed seeing so many families at the NFP picnic. Thank you for all who came and brought something to share and most especially brought all those beautiful children! We hope you had a chance to look at the photos. The 'couples' water balloon toss was new this year and it was a hit.
We know of a few new babies born since the picnic and a few pregnancies announced. We hope to celebrate these new lives at future meetups together.
I am getting ready to schedule some meetups for the fall and I would love to include suggestions from the group. Do you have a favorite place that you think other families would enjoy? Please let me know.
We want to do a couple family service projects before the end of the year. One will be a leaf-raking day and the other will be Christmas caroling at a nursing home. Last year, we went to a facility in Wadsworth, but we could go to a different place this time. If anyone in the group has a family member in an assisted living facility and would like us to consider going there, please let me know.
We hope many of you will come to Rocky River Park on Saturday evening. It is such a great park for families. Our kids always have fun and we go there sometimes just for a date to enjoy the beautiful view of the lake.
Mary Ellen and Tim
