Hi Jen,

 

Do you think we can start some awareness with the Blog I posted.  This is a great avenue in our community to use for this awareness.  So far people are reading and no one is saying a word.  Which is usual with this topic. Please help!!!

Hey,
I can ask my SIL if she is still doing family photos bc she does the photography for Family Times magazine! Also, we have a family friend that is really good as well and did my family photos when I was pregnant with Matthew. I will get you her info later. Lastly, Pink Rae is really good!

Hi Jen,

I am the Director of Marketing/Business Development at the Paddock Mall in Ocala. We are planning our annual Mom's Nite Out event. It will be Thursday May 9th from 5:00-8:00. This event will offer Mom's the opportunity to enjoy networking, special discounts, prize drawings, women's health and wellness, food sampling, DJ providing music, fashion shows, demonstrations, and more. We would love to have OcalaMom participate. Can you let me know who I should contact regarding this event?

The rate is $150 for the evening, you will have at table and chairs, and can participate in a variety of ways. Some examples are: hand out information, have a demonstration or interactive display, sweepstakes prize, celebrity appearance, coupons, to name a few. Please let me know if you are interested or if you have any questions.

I look forward to working with you!

Thank you! There is so much information on this page it's wonderful and a bit overwhelming! I'm trying to see if there are any toddler play groups that anyone knows about?

Thanks Jen! That sounds great! :-)

Thank you Jen, i was hoping we can find some moms and their little ones to spend some time with. I have 11 month old son and i don't know anybody here in Ocala who is stay home mom with toddler. As my family is in Europe and my husband family is no longer here it is getting quite challenging for me to socialize. We also live on the farm in the middle of nowhere :-) so no neighbors there either ;-). If you know somebody or some good event for us that would be great. I subscribed to FB as well. Thanks again and Happy New Year!
