Dear NE Ohio NFP Meetup Members,
Happy New Year! We hope you have all enjoyed a wonderful holiday season!
We are looking forward to a great year for our NFP Meetup group. We hope you will join us for many activities. We also appreciate your helping planning them.
Our first activity is the Swing Dance Nite on Saturday, January 19th. One of our members made the phone calls and set a date so that we can all enjoy a fun night together. The studio is reserved for our group and we will be dancing with our own spouse. After dancing, we can move the fun to Malley’s on Lorain Road, where we sat last year for several hours chatting over hot fudge sundaes.
Maybe you would like to help plan one of the next activities? Past years’ winter activities included meeting at a skate rink during an open skate time, Bowling and pizza, and sledding. A suggested activity is dinner at Sterle’s Slovenian Country House on a night when they feature live polka music. Other suggestions are a girls night out to Mitchell’s ice cream and a guys night out to Great Lakes Brewing Company. A couple of the members have been planning monthly get-togethers for Moms and little ones in the morning.
We are also asking for help with promoting the Natural Family Planning classes. It helps to send the announcements for the classes to area churches to put them in their bulletins. Now it appears that bulletin editors prefer to get these announcements by email so they can just copy/paste. We need some help compiling those email addresses. If we sent you a spreadsheet with a short list of churches with address and phone, would you call and ask for the email address of the bulletin editor for each? You would just add it to the spreadsheet and email it back. We have a list for each teaching couple in Northeast Ohio, so we are looking for about 10-15 volunteers for this job. That way, no one has to make too many calls.
Please think about these requests and let us know how you would like to build community and advance NFP in 2013!
We look forward to hearing from you.
