Whether you have a tiny little one and school is years away, or you're trying to decide if your five year old should start kindergarten next fall, there should be some good information shared.

When: Thursday, April 27, 9:30 am

Where: Erin Presbyterian Church, 200 Lockett Rd. Knoxville 37919

I hope to see you all there! Please feel free to bring a snack to share.

Real Estate

Katy, a real estate agent, will be speaking at our next meeting. If a move is in your future, this will be informative.

Katy writes, "Buying a home is the largest financial investment most families will make. Knowing how the buying and selling process works and understanding trends in the current real estate market helps families maximize their real estate investments. I am so excited to share this important information with our MOPS members at our next meeting on April 13! If anyone has questions about real estate, please send them to me at katymccall320@gmail.com in advance, and I will make sure I answer them in the presentation, as well. See you April 13th!"

As always, feel free to bring food to share!

Where: Erin Presbyterian Church, 200 Lockett Rd. Knoxville 37919

Don't forget, our Easter Egg hunt is Friday, April 14 at 10 am. Bring a dozen filled eggs per child.

Show & Tell

I hope everyone is having a good week!

Unfortunately, the speaker scheduled for this Thursday had to cancel and we are instead going to have show and tell. That's right, just like in the days of elementary school! Please bring a personal item that is meaningful to you and come prepared to share it with the group. Looking forward to learning a bit more about everyone!

When: Thursday, March 9, 9:30 am
Where: Erin Presbyterian Church, 200 Lockett Rd. Knoxville 37919
