WOOOHOOO! I just got home from the Open House and it was a smashing success! We had over 50 adults (moms, dads, and grandparents) and at least 20 kids in attendance. We met in a library conference room and only had 1/2 the room (big enough for 50). The library staff actually came and counted and we thought they were going to kick us out for exceeding fire code! I guess we are going to need the entire conference room from now on...
It was great to see people are so excited about the new community we are making! It was so nice to see that all the publicity work that we did actually paid off. We had people write how they heard about us on the sign in sheet. Although I have not yet compiled it, just on a quick look several came because of our articles in the paper and flyers that we posted all over the place. Hooray! It was wonderful to see the diversity in the group as well. We had parents and kids of all ages, backgrounds, ethnicities, etc.
I came home to 10 emails already...I guess this is just the beginning!
