Hi! I saw there are two different threads going on Bakersfield right now, one which I originally started several months ago, and a new one. I'm motiviated by all these new posts, and I'm finally trying to organize a get-together sometime in June for Mothering moms (and aspiring moms) in the Kern County area. I, for one, would love this chance to start making some more like-minded friends. If you'd be interested in coming, we'd love to have you! I have 3 other moms who are definitely going to come, and others I haven't heard back from yet. It should be fun!<br><br>
Anyway, if you'd like to come, please e-mail me at <a href="mailto:[email protected]">[email protected]</a> by May 29th with all days and times that would work for you, as well as suggested meeting locations. Also, please give first names and ages of those would would be coming (I want to make name tags), and some form of contact info (phone in addition to e-mail if possible). I'll be comparing suggestions and getting back to everyone at the end of the month, although of course I'll be responding to any questions before then!<br><br>
Hope you can come!<br><br>
Helen

I think that the get together is a wonderful idea. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up"> I am really looking forward to it. I'll e-mail you with my information.

Hey, everyone!<br><br>
Posting an update. I've gathered information, followed up with everyone, and we now have a definite time and place. We will be meeting at CALM at 11:00 am on Saturday, June 18th. There are at least 7 families definitely coming at this day and time, possibly more. Anyone else who hasn't stumbled onto this thread until now is also welcome to join us--just e-mail me at <a href="mailto:[email protected]">[email protected]</a> and give me your info. If this time and day doesn't work for you, but you'd be interested in a future get-together, just let me know!<br><br>
I'm looking into getting us a group rate, but here are CALM's admission prices:<br><br>
Adults $4.50<br>
Seniors $3.75<br>
Children 3-12 years old $2.75<br>
Children under 3 years old are admitted Free of charge.<br>
Special Group rates available with a reservation.<br><br>
More info can be found on their website, at <a href="http://www.calmzoo.org/" target="_blank">http://www.calmzoo.org/</a> and CALM's number is 661-872-2256.

I know, I know, it's rude to talk politics among friends, <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/shy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="innocent"><br>
Just don't want any of you to be surprised! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/tiphat.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Tiphat">:

Louise you are a brave, brave Mama to sport that cool sticker in Kern County. You know this is Bush country!<br><br>
I'm so glad to find some like-minded Mamas in this area as well. I thought I was going to have to move to Berkley to find anyone as liberal as me. :LOL

You missed a good time! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> I think we plan on meeting up again in a month or so. We'll have to catch you then.

It was so much fun! It was great meeting all of you and your beautiful kids! I move that we have the next meeting up here in the mountains at my place--we can all escape the heat and have fun in our big yard!!! Also, I admit, I want my eldest DD to be here. She and my DH would love to meet you all! Maybe a potluck?
