Calendar

Our group has calendar’s in two places. Here and on our Closed Facebook group page. This calendar’s purpose is to get our event list easily available for the public.

We do RSVP’s on our Facebook page. Why:

  • Lets us know how we are doing at setting up meetings and choosing space properly for meetings.
  • Lets us know if we need to have an additional leaders if one is sick.
  • Allows attendees to request thing to try or specify what help they need.
  • Decreases the workload on our volunteer leadership team.
  • Allows leaders to quickly notify attendees if there is an emergency cancellation or change.
  • Provides an easy place to contact leaders regarding questions before or for follow up after meetings .

We do our best to keep this calendar and our Facebook calendar synced and are working on making this a seamless process…but in the mean time please forgive if we miss something!

    I have a 3 1/2 month old and a 2.5 year old. I am trying to find the best carrier for the baby and I am having a hard time. Would the May 7th meeting be something that would be useful for me? I have bought and returned 2 already!

  19. Joyce

    I am interested in the November 21st meeting in Schaumburg. Do I RSVP here and also, is there a way to find out what carriers will be at which meetings? I am relatively new to babywearing and have found the whole thing very overwhelming. However, that’s not to say I’m discouraged. In fact, I am, now more than ever, determined to learn everything about it! I have an 18 month old and another on the way in February. I sent an email over a week ago to the designated email address but I never got any response. Can someone give me more info about how this all works? Thanks so much!
