Do you realize that Christmas is just 2 months away! A Toy and Gift Basket Sale is taking place on Saturday – October 26 in Stratford, Ontario. A number of vendors with some great Pre-Christmas sales will be on site at the Knights of Columbus Hall – 93 Morgan Street in Stratford from 11:00 AM to 5:00 PM. The Institute for Parent and Infant Care (IPIC) will have a display at this event and there will be an opportunity to enter a draw for a free Medela Swing Breast Pump (worth more than $200.00) or a free Cozy Cuddles nursing pillow (Retail Price $65.00)! I will be on hand to greet those who attend and answer any questions you might have about the services offered at the Institute for Parent and Infant Care (IPIC). I can also highly recommend Discovery Toys and Arbonne for their products uniquely suited for new parents and infants. Drop in and see what is happening and enjoy some Hot Apple Cider and Pumpkin Muffins! This event is free and everyone who attends receives a free gift bag! At 2:00 PM there will be a special presentation about how to buy gifts for those “hard-to-please” family members and friends. I am looking forward to meeting you! If you mention seeing this event on Parent you will receive a special gift! October 2013 Special Event in Stratford
