What we're about


I am the organizer of the St. Louis Family Meetup, we are a social group that meets at least once a week. It is my goal to encourage, equip, and engage your family to GET OUT, GET CONNECTED, AND GET INVOLVED. Meet up with other parents and their children, in your community, and most importantly connect with your own children. People go to Meetups so they can do more of what’s most important to them. By coming together around shared interests, we move our lives forward, and we make our towns and cities stronger, healthier, happier places— getting closer to Meetup’s vision of a world full of real community.

Our Meetup is a great way to offer timely childcare resources and FREE admission to the coolest "haps" in St. Louis. Hopefully you will benefit from our Discussion and Pages forums, which will benefit your family, community, and the city of St. Louis. Our organization strives to offer a cultural and educational experience, as we explore what St. Louis has to offer, which we know there is much! We have grown to be a force in St. Louis and the Kirkwood community!

I thought you might be interested in our Meetup because our dynamic events are family friendly and provide a positive learning experience while having fun with your children. We encourage all families to join, with children of all ages.

Would you be interested in learning more about our Meetup and potentially sharing what you have learned with your friends? I would invite you to attend our next event. Please feel free to view photos of our Meetup in action, too!

If you would like to know how you can further support our Meetup, then please let me show you how to start your own green friendly fundraiser. How it works, https://www.flowerpowerfundraising.com/how-it-works Our fundraiser profits will help offset our administrative costs, help improve future meetups, and hopefully engage more active members to join.

Finally, we are giving back to our community. Half of the profits will go to KirkCare, a local food pantry that provides for families in need. Also, you CAN help give back to our community, please feel free to bring a canned and/or boxed food item to the next event. Again, please visit our Pages tab for more information on our sponsors, KirkCare, and the most updated resources for early childhood development.
