Introducing Park Hop and Play Dates!!

Hello!
 
Introducing Park Hop and Play Dates! A new series of events to enjoy with your little ones this summer. Come on out and meet moms of multiples in your area!
 
These summer events will be hosted by (me) fellow TPAB member, Nadia D'Abruzzo, I am a mommy of 2.5 year old identical twin boys and a 4 year old girl.  I have the pleasure of staying home with all 3!  We're still relatively new to Brampton, having only moved here shortly after the boys were born. Needless to say, we'd love to meet more moms and multiples!
 
I've set up the first couple park hop dates below, all of the parks I've selected will suit babies and children of all ages.  More dates will be announced soon!  All info will be kept updated on www.twinsplus.ca under Events.
 
If there are moms who would like to have some events on the weekends, please message me and I'll see what I can arrange :)
 
I really hope you can join us! Please RSVP ASAP to TPABSocial@hotmail.com so I can know who to expect...  Look for me at the park with a Twins Plus Association of Brampton sign or banner!
 
See you soon!
 
Nadia

Welcome to our newest Volunteers!

Over the last year – we have asked for new volunteers to step forward and help where possible.  We do this fully understanding how difficult it is for our members to find the time when we are all raising multiples!! 
 
At Christmas time – we welcomed to the Social Committee – Tracy McKinley, Kim Cunningham and Sylvie Paquet!  They have been meeting occasionally with the Social Committee and planning out Social events and always helping when needed.  We thank you Ladies for your time and effort!!
 
Our newest volunteer is Nadia D'Abruzzo who is also joining the Social Committee and will be solely responsible for planning and being at all Park Hop Days.  Park Hop Days will be planned throughout the entire summer by Nadia at various parks around Brampton – please look for an email TODAY in your inbox from her (TPAB Social Committee email address).  We have received many requests from the new moms of the younger kids that are looking to have play dates with other moms....we hope this is going to fill that void and that the newer moms will take advantage of this great opportunity to get out and meet other young families like yours!!
 
We are always looking for volunteers to fill small voids and then some big ones too....slowly we are growing into a more functional club and hope that one day we will be able to meet the needs of the entire multiples community in Brampton and the surrounding area.  We appreciate all the help we can get and thrive on any little act of volunteerism that is offered. 
 
If there is anything that you think you may be able to help with – please send me a note! 
 
Take care and hope to see most of you in the coming months at our exciting summertime events!
