We had a great turnout for our February meeting in Newport News this past Friday, February 15! Big thanks to everyone who was able to attend! We had 27 adults and 34 children joining us.
Jilliane K (Board Chair) welcomed everyone to the meeting and facilitated introductions as there were a lot of new faces during our first official BWI meeting on the Peninsula.
Dana K (Community Outreach Chair) took a few minutes to talk about membership in Babywearing International. If you are interested, you can apply on the blog and pay via PayPal and we will also have membership applications available at each meeting if you prefer to pay by cash or check. We are working with local vendors for membership perks as an extra incentive to join, if you are able. However, membership is NOT required to attend meetings or participate in special activities.
Ginger H (Operations Chair) shared information regarding the pre-order for BWIofHR t-shirts. These are available in both a standard cut t-shirt and a ladies cut t-shirt for the same price. The color is sapphire & the print will be white.
Option 1 has the BWIofHR logo on the pocket area and the “I Wear My ❤ On My Back" phrase on the back of the t-shirt.
Option 2 has the “I Wear My ❤ On My Back" phrase on the front of the t-shirt and the BWIofHR enlarged logo on the back.
