Do you enjoy attending playgroup and all of the special Family Club events?  The Family Club board is a great opportunity to get more involved.  Serving on The Family Club board not only benefits your child/children, it is a great feature to list on a resume.  One perk of serving on the board is your annual dues to The Family Club are waived.  The board members meet 5 times per year, usually at the Colectivo Coffee shop in Shorewood.  Each board member takes on a job to make the year run smoothly.  Please consider volunteering your time to keep this wonderful group alive!  The positions we have open for next year are:

  • Cleaning/ Helping Hands – Organize monthly playroom cleaning days and set-up meal delivery websites for families who are in need of extra help.
  • Purchasing – Replenish snack, craft, and cleaning supplies to the playroom as needed.  All purchases will be reimbursed.
  • Membership – Collect membership forms and make a database of current members.  Compose a yearly membership directory.
  • Website – Update and maintain our website

Winter At the Domes

In case you haven't been informed, one of the BEST family-friendly winter events in Milwaukee is going on right now, and it's FREE.  Every Monday morning, Milwaukee County residents get free admission to The Domes.  All you have to do is show your driver's license and you can spend as much time as you like strolling through the three domes, being transported somewhere warmer than here!

This year, the show dome is hosting a train show called "Attack of the Giant Monsters".  From now until March 6, you can enjoy the extensive model train set-up and chat with the volunteer engineers in a beautifully landscaped setting.  Your little monsters will love it!
