Call For Volunteers:  Birth Circle at the Paw Paw Festival

Every year, the Birth Circle co-sponsors a baby care and nursing tent at the Paw Paw festival. (Sept 11-13 at Lake Snowden)  Last year, it served around 100 visitors, and this year we expect it to be better, with more space and some programming. WE NEED YOUR HELP to plan and pull this off!  If you are interested in assisting with donations, set up/tear down, planning, programming, and anything else please contact Rachel Szostek at or sign up at this month’s meeting. We want this to be a place of comfort and retreat for families, and we need a strong committee to make that happen!
