2011 Summer Activities

We are excited to announce our summer get togethers!  This year we are again alternating park playdates and “field trip” activities.   We are doing something new this year though – one or two MOPS moms will be taking turns “hosting” the events.   Friends can be invited to any of the park playdates, and they may also come to almost all of the activities as long as you RSVP on their behalf , (except the UNL stadium tours due to space limitations) .  All of the field trip activities (asterisked below) require you to RSVP.  You can RSVP at anytime to firstfreemops@gmail.com with your name and the number of children and adults (including yourself) that will be attending.  You need to RSVP for the activities at least one week in advance, and to help you remember we will be posting weekly reminders on the blog.

All events are on Thursday mornings at 10:00 a.m. unless noted.
