MEMBERS ONLY: Family Halloween at Nymphaea Animal Park

The IWCS Mother’s Corner invites all club members and their families to join us on Halloween weekend (Saturday, October 30th) for a walk through the Nymphaea Animal Park together!

We will let the kids have a taste of Halloween while enjoying feeding the animals at the park (costumes optional but encouraged!). Afterwards we can sit in the attached Biergarten as weather allows and visit while the children use the playground. We will meet up at the entrance at 15:00 to buy our tickets.

Each family will be responsible for their own entrance cost (see below) **BUT VERY IMPORTANT** we must make reservations in advance for the exact number of people due to park regulations that limit the number of visitors. The RSVP deadline for this event is October 15th, so please let Rebecca know before then how many people in your family will be attending so she can reserve enough spots for our entrance time.

Entrance costs are payable on the day of the event at the entrance. Adult tickets are €3, kids 7-17 are €1 and 6 and under are free.

Current Covid-19 regulations – Masks for ages 6+ are required at the entrance and inside the enclosed animal houses/aviaries (no 3G required at this time). The playground is currently open and feeding the animals is also allowed.

To RSVP, please respond in the private Facebook event or use the contact form below if you are not on Facebook.

IWCS 2019 MOTHER’S CORNER SUMMER PARTY
This event is for all IWCS members and their families!
Sunday July 7th from 11:00
Schulbauernhof Zukunftsfelder, Am Lotterberg 36, 70825 Korntal-Münchingen
Nearest station: Korntal Gymnasium

Bring the whole family to the IWCS Mother’s Corner summer party in July, being held at a farm near Weilimdorf! There’s lots of room for the kids to run around and a quick visit to farm itself is included. We’ll be grilling and having a potluck lunch.

The Mother’s Corner will be providing meat to grill and soft drinks – in case you need a veggie alternative, please let us know. We ask each family attending to bring either a side dish or dessert to share (veggie/vegan side dishes are especially welcome). Each family should also bring their own dishes and cups/picnicware.

All family members are welcome, including grandparents! Because we will be outside and at a farm, some things to think about include clothes that can get dirty, sunscreen, outdoor toys, and a blanket to sit on.

To RSVP, please use the pending Facebook event in the private members group or the contact form below if you are not on Facebook.

Welcome to our New Mother’s Corner Coordinators!

pexels-photo-131777.jpeg

A few months ago, we put out a “help wanted” call for a new coordinator for our Mother’s Corner group.

We were fortunate to have not just one, but TWO, members answer that call! The mamas of the Mother’s Corner no doubt already know Mimi and Laura, who will be splitting the duties and working together to create fun events for IWCS families with young children starting in May.

Got ideas for new activities? Then these are the two ladies you want to talk to! Post about it in the Mother’s Corner Facebook group or send them a message using the contact form below.

If you have young children and are not currently in the Mother’s Corner group, please contact them below!

A big thanks to Allison, our current Mother’s Corner coordinator who is retiring from her coordinating duties, but remaining a member of the group. Thanks for your efforts this past year!
