We are excited about our next monthly meeting which is this Wednesday at the Athens Library. As many of you may know, sometimes the toddler years can seem like a roller coaster of joy and challenges, but our presenter has some tips to help make that time fruitful for the whole family. Please see below for details and we hope you will join us to learn more!
Also below you will find information about our next Play Group, Loss Support Group and an opportunity for those of you who are pregnant from the College of Osteopathic Medicine. See you soon!
