Our monthly Virginia Beach meeting was held on June 6, 2015. We had a total attendance of 101, which included adults, children, VBEs, and volunteers. We also welcomed 12 first time visitors and 7 new memberships. A great addition into the lending library this summer was a new Beachfront Baby Mesh Water Wrap, perfect for babywearing in the pool or beach. As always, we appreciate the support of our members, the availability of our volunteers, and everyone who contributes in our fundraising to help BWI of Hampton Roads continue to grow. The car decal fundraiser, which was launched at our Southside meeting, finally arrived at our Virginia Beach location. We hope to see our lovely decals across Hampton Roads and wish you all a safe and wonderful 4th of July holiday.

The Peninsula June meeting was a blast! There were so many newborns whose caregivers couldn’t wait to learn how to wear them! We had 34 adults, and 25 children attend. The babywearing stations were, once again, a hit. Everyone had the opportunity to attend the teaching station that best suited their needs. Have you attended a meeting and seen how we set up stations yet? If not, come join us! There are stations for Back Carries in Woven Wraps, Front Carries in Woven Wraps, SSC/MT, and RS/Pouches! Four separate stations for four separate needs! Join us on July 11 at 300 Butler Farm Rd, Hampton, VA for fun, learning, and socializing!
