Possibly, our funnest activity this summer was participating in the World Breastfeeding Week 5K Race and Family Fun Walk sponsored by Lactation Health Resources (operated by Lisa Settje, IBCLC). LLL provided a nursing area during this fun-filled morning. We look forward to participating again the first Saturday of August 2015!
We've also ramped up our fundraising efforts. Running LLL of Lynchburg costs money! We are grateful to have breastfeeding mothers in Leadership Training. Along with that comes increased Leader dues requirements. To help offset our expenses, we have a quarterly fundraiser at Sweet Frog on Forest - yum! We'll post the next date when it is close.
T-shirts are always a fun idea, and we'll soon set up a LLL of Lynchurg t-shirt fundraiser. Our theme is "Eat Local."
Lauren C, LLL mom extraordinaire, is our Wednesday playgroup coordinator. Join our yahoo group or LLL of Lynchburg Facebook page to receive updates on what time and where, playgroup will meet on any given Wednesday.
Lisa W. continues to provide fun, weekly mommy and me yoga classes with an American Sign Language component. Come, move around with your kids and local mommas and learn a new language!
Most importantly, our monthly meetings continue to meet every third Thursday at 10am at First Christian Church. Come for mother to mother support and to meet new moms and kids. Our next meeting is November 20. We hope you can make it!
