Message from President Joe Matessa - October

Fall is my favorite season of the year – beautiful foliage, cool nights and pumpkin-spiced everything.  So it’s only befitting that my favorite FPN event happens every October – and last Saturday’s event once again surpassed all expectations. 

A packed room of anxious, hopeful parents-to-be heard from other parents about their heartwarming journeys, followed by industry experts that answered questions about the nuts and bolts of where to begin.  The bustling Resource & Book Fair was abuzz with networking and fellowship, while kids were running around enjoying the amazing play space at The Childhood League Center, getting their faces painted and watching a balloon artist transform colorful latex into silly hats and imaginative animals.  The afternoon culminated (at least for those under 10) with a rockin’ performance by the ever-popular Shazzbots.

Thanks to everyone that helped make it a huge success – especially our presenting sponsor, Equitas Health, the FPN Board of Directors, Donatos Pizza, and the incredible team at The Childhood League Center for being such accommodating hosts.

We have another monthly Happy Hour, and a lot of fun events coming-up in the next few weeks with some of our Proud Partners, so we hope to see you again soon.  Enjoy the season!
