Our Mission: providing support for Calgary's single parents and their children. We are celebrating our 14th Anniversary and we're so glad you found us.
Fees: a one time contribution of $5.00 to offset the annual fee Meetup.com charges to host the group (approximately $250/year, depending on group size and USD exchange rate). Please message Kirby, Lead Organizer, to arrange payment or confirm payment was made at one of the Meetups.
What we do: We try to schedule a range of activities for all ages as well as at least one PNO (parent's night out) per month. ANY MEMBER can suggest a meetup - please include date, time and location! - and it gets posted to the calendar as soon as 3 members opt in. If you aren't sure about details, start a chat on the Message Board first. Bigger meetups (like camping) often need a credit card deposit so always better to have some dialogue before booking.
Who can join: This group is open to ALL SINGLE PARENTS no matter how old your children may be so please feel free to join in & see what we are all about. But being an actual parent, by birth or otherwise, is a requirement.
What we expect: This group is only as good as each member is willing to make it. Suggest meetups! If it's something you like to do with your kid(s), guaranteed there is another parent (or two) who loves to do the same activity with their kid(s) who would love to combine forces, share in family discounts, and have an adult to talk to while the kids frolic. Keep checking in with us and adding to the calendar. Members inactive for more than 6 months will be removed during random membership list purges.
What we are not: A dating website. If you meet and connect with someone in this group, that's great, but that is not the focus of our group. We want to provide a positive, supportive and inclusive environment for ALL our members.
