The purpose of this group is to arrange play dates for Moms and LO's! This group is tailored for children from newborn to 3. Of course, LO’s of all ages are welcome!!! And, ultimately, as the group grows, we hope to add another co-organizer who has older kids and can plan activities that better meet their needs.
We are a group of SAHM’s (Stay At Home Mothers) so we will not approve male members, sorry dads, at this moment. Therefore, many of our events will be Monday-Friday during typical working hours. We are planning on having some family-style weekend events, where the whole family can partake – think BBQ’s, splash pads, zoo trips, etc.
Finally, to ensure this group runs smoothly and meets all of your expectations, we have outlined our expectations for members and our promise to you!
Member Expectations - 1. If you RSVP 'Yes', we ask that you show up. Although we all understand that schedules are hectic and life is sometimes a bit unpredictable, please do not NO SHOW to an event. . 1. If something comes up, please change your RSVP to NO 2 hours in advance. 3. Let us know when to expect you! Sometimes, due to naps or just life, it’s hard to make it to the meet up at the start time – no problem. Just let us know in the comments if you will be arriving later and we will make sure to be there! 4. Please understand that if you are not active (not attending events) you may receive an email asking if you intend on staying a member. Members who are inactive on meetup.com for more that 5-6 months may be removed from the group without notice. You are welcome to join again.
Host (Organizer) Expectations - 1. All of the above, plus… 2. We will be on time to the start of the event, unless we comment if we are missing or running late (life gets to us too). 3. We will stay a minimum of 15 minutes waiting for other members to arrive. If someone has commented that they will be arriving at a specific time, we will wait 15 minutes past that time. 4. We will stay for the duration of the meet up if any member(s) are present. 5. We may opt to cancel a meet up if no one signs up or not enough members sign up 24hr in advance. Please do not wait to the last minute to sign up. 6. Members may sign up for private events or home events only if they have met the host.
***Starting in March/April 2017, we will be moving from donation based to fee based. We will be discussing this change at our organizational meetings. Each member will be given one month free in the beginning or one month free when they join, then will be require to pay a fee. The fee will be set closer to March/April 2017, and will be somewhere between $3 to $5 biannually to annual.
