End of Year Meeting

I can't believe we're concluding another year of MOPS! Please join us for our last meeting. We'll have food catered in from Panera, a fun craft, and time to hang out and share summer plans. (Play dates and mom's nights out, please!)

If you plan to attend, please check out the Panera menu at https://delivery.panerabread.com/#!/menu/category/ and contact Jodi B. with your order request. Her contact info will be on our Facebook page, found here.

I can't say it much better than Jodi B: "What I love most about our group is that we have such an amazing and diverse group of ladies, yet we are a small enough group that we all stick together and have each other's back. Being on the steering committee is so much fun and a great way to serve the group. If you haven't served before, this is a great way to jump into something new and fun." For those who plan to join next year, these open positions will need to be filled. Please prayerfully consider filling one:

Speakers - in charge of finding and scheduling speakers for meetings
Crafts - finding and coordinating craft supplies and teaching the group how to do the craft
Social Media - maintaining the Facebook page and blog
Childcare Coordinator - find childcare workers for meetings, set up curriculum if needed, set up crafts for kids, etc.

Hope to see you Thursday!

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!

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
Feel free to bring food to share
