Tell us about the playgroup you’ve been organizing for moms all summer:

I moved to NWA 7 years ago and I didn’t know anyone! I left a large group or friends and it was really tough. I believe friendship and community is so important so I started this free playgroup to reach out to others home with kids. June-August we meet every Friday at different parks or other activities all around NWA for kids to play and moms to build friendships that can be continued all year long. Activities are scheduled through Facebook page “Fellowship NWA Mamas and Munchkins.” For more information contact me at nwamoms@gmail.com
