May Family Meetup: Finding May Flowers
May 4 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pmFree
Connect casually with other parents and kids while playing on the playground, walking the winding trails, and finding May flowers. Dress for some outdoors time!
When you arrive, look for Beth (usually with her two children), carrying the large picnic basket with a CEA sign on it. They’ll be at the playground around 3pm. In case of inclimate weather, we will meet at the nearby Brookdale Library. See updates on this page.
All children must have supervising parent or caregiver.
Mark your calendars for the next several CEA Family Meetups:
Saturday, June 22 – Time & Location: TBD – will be at a Minneapolis park as this is a meetup partnership with Minneapolis’s Parks & Recreation Department
Saturday, July 13 – 10:00-12:00pm @ Wood Lake Nature Center, 6710 Lake Shore Drive, Richfield, MN
Saturday, August 17 – 2:00-4:00pm @ Clifton E. French Regional Park, 12605 Rockford Rd, Plymouth, MN
This event is part of Communities Engaging Autism’s Monthly Meetups.
What we’re about:
Join informal, fun gatherings for families living with autism and related conditions who seek casual social connections with peers. We may have formal supports in schools and clinics, but it’s often through informal connections with other parents and kids that we feel heard, understood, and not so alone.
What will we do?
We play and explore the gathering space (i.e. nature center building or main playground) for 30 minutes before setting out on a walk. We’ll leave our CEA sign and a note on when we’ll return. After a walk, we’ll gather at the meeting space for snacks and a book, activity, craft or casual chat time. These are flexible, unconditional gatherings, so join the group for all or some of the activities.
What would YOU show up for?
Our intention is connection, so let us know what kind of community you want to be a part of. What activities would you show up for? What times work best for your family? What locations do you love or want to explore?
