Suzanne's Around Town
Harry, Harvest& Girls Night Out!

Hi! Everyone-

Just thought I'd let you know ahead of time that the MOMS Club of Beaverton-South will hold a fun open house on Mon., Dec. 6th from 10AM-11:30AM at the Beaverton Resource Center (12500 SW Allen Blvd.). There will be cookie decorating and a visit from a local children's author for the kids while Moms can learn more about what our chapter has to offer. Why have I been a member of the club since '02? Just look at the pic of me with my toddler and baby!!!! Ha,ha,ha! The MOMS Club has been my rope ladder to sanity and my whole family still enjoys all of our club friends & the fun activities - with and without kids. So come and check out our club. RSVP for the open house at mcbs.rsvp@hotmail.com and go to www.momsclubbeavertonsouth.org for more info about the MOMS Club. I'd be happy to answer any questions about the club at osgriffiths@frontier.com.

Stay dry,

Suzanne
