We met for our first official day meeting on Friday May 2nd at Burlington Library. It was a wonderful turnout with about 30 adults with their little ones attending. One of our leaders, Ashley Teller demonstrated a Front Wrap Cross Carry with her newborn. A video tutorial can be found here on our YouTube channel for those practicing at home https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nuxzD5mMIzQ We were also very honored to have Ali James of the Knoxville News Sentinel with us. She wrote a wonderful article about our group that was featured on the front of the family section on Saturday May 10th.

We had a fantastic turnout and raised almost $400 between memberships and fundraising which will be put toward more carriers for our lending library and other necessary purchases for the group. We so very much appreciate everyone who came our and supported us! If this event was any indication, our chapter is going to be a massive success and a great contribution to the community!
