Morning Walk

We hope you can sneak away for a morning walk with your mom friends at beautiful Peninsula Point Trail.
Peninsula Point Trail is a 2.8 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Wake Forest, North Carolina that features a lake and is good for all skill levels. The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible year-round. Dogs are also able to use this trail but must be kept on leash.
*Note: This trail is kid friendly, but we are not certain that it is stroller friendly. This will be our first time doing it too!

This is a member event.

Family Adventure: Chinese Lantern Festival

Grab your family and join your HER Circle friends to take in the beautiful chinese lanterns at Koka Booth Ampitheater.
More than 2,500 lanterns create the 36 all-new displays showcasing the beauty and artistry of Chinese culture in an authentic multi-cultural experience that has become a popular holiday tradition for families. Lanterns are handcrafted by Chinese artisans who live in our community during the festival. Visitors won’t want to miss this year’s new interactive lantern displays and the return of the spectacular floating Dragon on Symphony Lake. Bring the family as festival admission includes nightly Chinese acrobatic performances.
The gates open at 6pm and we will plan to meet just inside the gates to walk through and take in the lights together!

Friendsgiving Brunch

HER fam!
We hope you can join us for a backyard Friendsgiving brunch! The whole family is invited! Come enjoy some time with your HER Friends!
We will be outside, so please plan for the weather. If it’s chilly, bundle up!
Please bring a dish to share. We will have some yard games out for the kiddos and a bonfire going.
Mimosas, cider, and coffee will be provided! Please post the dish you plan to bring in the comments so we avoid doubles!

Fire Station Meal Drop-off & Playground Playdate

HER fam:
Help us stock the fridge/freezer of one of our local fire stations and give the firefighters some great meals to eat over the holiday weekend.
Please share in the comments what you plan to bring so we have some variety for the firefighters!
You can bring a large main dish (like a lasagna that they can freeze and leave out to share), a side that could be served alongside it, or you can package individual meals (i.e. with a main dish, a couple sides, etc).
We will meet at a nearby playground (location TBD) where the kiddos will have a chance to hang out and play and you will be able to drop off your food item. At 5pm our volunteer will load up the food and deliver the meal(s) to the station!
