Birth Circle Family Reunion Picnic 2017

There will be no monthly meeting in August! Instead we will have our annual Family Picnic.

Wednesday, August 30th 5:30-7 pm
Eclipse Company Store Beer Hall in The Plains (11309 Jackson Drive, The Plains, Ohio 45780)

In lieu of a regular Monthly Meeting, each August we gather to celebrate the wonderful community of families old and new with a festive picnic in a kid-friendly location. This year we are reuniting at the Eclipse Company Store Beer Hall where kids and parents can eat, drink and be merry while supporting The Birth Circle–the folks at the Beer Hall have generously offered to donate $1 of every beer sold during the picnic to The Birth Circle! We hope that lots of you will join us that evening to reconnect with old friends, meet new ones and celebrate summer. See you there!
