Edited 8/27/11 for a change in venue. See details below.
I would like to start spreading the word that there is a new chapter of the Holistic Moms Network (www.holisticmoms.org) forming in the Fremont, Newark, Union City area. We are calling ourselves the Tri-City Area Chapter. I have been co-leading the San Jose Chapter for the past three years and feel that it is time to bring HMN to my hometown! Our ongoing monthly meeting location will be the community room of the Newark Public Library (6300 Civic Terrace Avenue, Newark) and will take place the first Thursday evening of each month from 7:00 - 9:00 p.m.
***Due to an overwhelming response from the holistic vendors and practicioners in the area, we have secured a larger venue for our Open House Event on October 6th. This first meeting of our chapter will take place in the meeting room of the Silliman Center (6800 Mowry Road, Newark) from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. We will kick off the chapter by having an Open House with many local green businesses and holistic practitioners in attendance.
If you are unfamiliar with HMN, we are a national, non-profit organization. Our purpose is to generate awareness, education, and support for holistic parenting and to provide a nurturing, open-minded and respectful community for parents to share these ideals. We serve to encourage moms (and dads) in their efforts to parent naturally and to raise their children holistically, to help holistic moms find others with whom they can connect and to continually educate ourselves and our families about alternative health, mindful parenting, natural healing and environmental stewardship.
If you have any questions, would like to join the chapter or the leadership team, please send me an email at email@example.com
PM me your email information if you would like to be added to our mailing list. You can also keep track of our chapter's progress on our facebook page.
The organization's website has great information on what we are about and how to join; www.holisticmoms.org. Please attend a meeting or two to see if HMN is a fit for you.
