Halloween Week Events


You may not be aware, but normally these are late because I’ve been battling the posting system. It hasn’t been me that has been late posting these upcoming event emails and getting them out to all of our members – it has been the system. Well, not this week. It’s totally me. I’ll blame it on Halloween. Halloween is almost here and I’ve been busy this week trying to cram in as many festive harvest-y events as I could since this month completely got away from me! I can’t believe this weekend begins November! Here is what we’ve got on our calendar this week:


9:00AM – 11:00AM: Playtime at Woodland Community Church

11:00AM- 12:00PM: Fingerpaint and Snacks at Learning Express


10:30AM – 11:15AM: Open Gym time at Acro-Fit


11:00AM – 12:00PM: Halloween Storytime at Learning Express


Happy Halloween!!


6:30PM – 8:30PM: Open Gym time at Lakewood Ranch Gymnastics


BooFest Parade is coming up!

Hi everyone!

The BooFest parade is coming uphup Friday night and we are walking in the parade as a group! Any members, kids and families who are interested in walking with us, please come out! We have been asked to be lined up near Olaf’s Creamery by 5:30.

Parking is horrific during this event so a few members have discussed meeting extra early at La Trattoria for pizza at 4:30. That should ease the parking issue and the “mom, I’m hungry” troubles that will no doubt start right when the parade begins.

We hope to see you there and, if you can, leave a comment on the Facebook page post so we know to look for you!
