Various Locations -
We also have a children’s group that welcomes all families and ages. We meet at various locations throughout Chicagoland.
The July 20th Children’s Group meeting will be a beach day/picnic at Foster Beach in Chicago. It is a chance for the kids (and families) to enjoy a day at the beach with other GF kids.
Where we will be on the beach: there’s a stroller ramp that leads from the bath house down to the first life guard chair and we’ll try to set up behind that first chair next to the ramp. I will have a blue sun shade tent set up.
We hope to see you there (of course weather permitting – the event is cancelled if rainy).
