First MOPS Meeting of the 2011-12 Year!!!

Hi, ladies! There have been some BIG changes to Bastrop County MOPS for this next year. First, our new charter church is Cedar Creek United Methodist Church, so we will be meeting there for our meetings, beginning Sept. 7th. CCUMC is located at 5630 FM 535 in Cedar Creek, across Hwy 21 from Cedar Creek Elementary. Also, at least for now, we will only be meeting ONCE per month, on the 1st Wednesday of every month. The time, however, 10am-12pm, will stay the same. And we will continue to have Playdates on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays, as well as Mom's Night Out once a month.

Here's the info on our first meeting of the new year:

Wednesday, Sept. 7th, 10am-12pm

Mom's Night Out--Ramos Restaurant & The Lumberyard Music Hall

Change of plans!!! We're NOT having a game night & potluck. Instead, we're going to meet at 7pm for dinner at Ramos Restaurant (701 Chestnut) and then head over to the Lumberyard Music Hall (1109 Main) for some live music. The Possum Posse, a high-energy sardonic honky-tonk/bluegrass band, is performing. They will be slammin’ out memorable originals and mashed-up versions of cult-classics and girlie-pop favorites. Perfect for a fun and exciting mom's night out! Cover charge is $7. Please RSVP for dinner.
