September flew by!

What a wonderful start resuming our monthly Virginia Beach meetings after a summer full of mini meetings! On September 5, 2015 we had a total attendance of 95, which included adults, children, VBEs, and volunteers. We also welcomed 14 first time visitors, 4 new memberships, and 1 renewal of membership. A lovely addition into the lending library is a new toddler sized Lenny Lamb “Soleil Diamond” wrap conversion SSC. We hope everyone who was in attendance enjoyed the meeting. And if you borrowed from our lending library, we’d love for you to share some action shot photos on our chatter page. We look forward to seeing you at our next meeting in October.

The Peninsula monthly meeting occurred on September 12 at the Hampton Teen Center. We had 22 adults, 21 kids, and 8 volunteers in attendance. Attendees enjoyed a morning of friendship and laughs while learning more at our stations. This month we added a new wrap to our library- Smitten! We also gave away a Pavo tote to a lucky member. Our October meeting is for returns and check outs only. Please come to the pumpkin patch play date after!

Our Southside meeting was held at the Russell Memorial library this month! We had a great turn out of 64 attendees; we welcomed 6 people to their first BWI meeting, and gained 2 new members. We had four volunteers who helped make our meeting fun smoothly, Rochelle W, Karen M, Christine M,& Danielle G. We appreciate all of our volunteers.Our lending library has gained a lot of new carriers this year. This month we added a Girasol Wrap Converted Ring Sling to our library. I hope everyone had a great time and found the help they needed. Just a reminder Southside meetings for October and November will be at the Indian River Library location!
