Dave’s Killer Bread order for December due by Tuesday night. Delivery is mid-morning Wednesday. Please put your payment in the envelope labeled “Bread Payments” in the sign in book. Checks payable to Woodlawn Swap n Play.

Thanks Dayspring for taking on the job of Cleaning Team Coordinator! I really appreciate it, as do all swap families. We want to keep our space clean this winter! We still have some cleaning team jobs open if you need a co-op job.

I am still working on a CPR/First Aid class. Thanks for your patience!

New class starting in January: We have a mama who works for Music Together who is joining swap. She will be teaching a Music Together type class for just swap n play families. Day/time will be announced soon! This will be a great time to make music with your child and expose them to different instruments.

I added some air freshener to the cleaning shelf. If you feel like the space needs a little lavender freshness feel free to use it! I know our old building can get a little musty now and then.

Dates to keep in mind for January:

Jan. 8th 4pm Family Square Dance in the ballroom (free to swap n play families)

Jan. 22nd Laura Veirs concert in the ballroom!!! This is going to be awesome! $10 adults, $5 kids and babies free. We are working out the ticket details, but mark your calenders for Sunday, 3pm. Swap n play fundraiser for an upstairs storage closet and beer and wine sales going toward The Oregon Public House. Check out her music at

Jan. 23rd 7pm Parent Education Night: Guest Speakers! Want info on preschool options in Portland? Montessori/Waldorf/Co-op Preschools/In-home preschools? Even if your child won’t be going to preschool next year this is something lots of parents ask me about, and wonder about. I have 3 guest speakers coming in for the night to talk about options and answer questions. Please, please… RSVP to me if you want to come so I can let our speakers know how many to plan for. Thanks!

We have some new families joining us in January. If you are going to discontinue your membership, please let me know ASAP so I can notify some families on the waiting list.

Enjoy your week,
