Expectant Moms: Please remember:

You are required to attend a "Baby Shower" class, in the last two months of your pregnancy. (you may take this class, up to two months after your baby is born)

- these are also listed on our webpage under "Events",on our Facebook page under Events, and posted the day before and the day of the shower,  on Facebook.

There will be a morning class that starts promptly at 9:00 am

and an afternoon class at 12:00 pm.

This will be the ONLY time you will be able to take the class

to get a crib  (if you qualify) and shop the layette room.
