October Au Pair Meeting

Dear Au Pairs,

I hope you are all having a great week and month! I know it is getting close to Halloween, so it would make sense for us to do something festive for our October meeting, but I say enough of the jack-o-lanterns, candy, and costumes. What is more festive than shopping?!

October Au Pair Meeting
Modern Vintage Chicago Fall Fashion and Jewelry Explosion
Plumbers Hall, 1340 W. Washington
Sunday, October 23rd
3:00 our group meets inside the front doors. We will then find a place to sit and have our meeting.
Cost: Free from 2:00 – 4:00 if you click on this link for a coupon.

I am going to arrive at 2:00 so I have time to shop before our meeting. Please join me – it’s so much more fun to shop together!

At 3:00 we’ll meet inside near the front doors to compare purchases, greet those of you just arriving, and have a short stand-up meeting. Our agenda is as follows:

1. Introductions and welcome to Dhana, the newest au pair in our group. (5 minutes)
2. Reminder about Host Family Halloween Event. (5 minutes)
3. Talk about Halloween traditions and trick-or-treating safety. (10 minutes)
4. Finish up shopping, together!

Also, at some point between 2:00 and 4:00, while we are shopping, I would like to talk with each of you individually for a couple of minutes to check in on your education credits and answer any questions you might have. It will be your responsibility to come and talk to me during those two hours. I highly encourage you come at 2:00 and also to stick around after our very short meeting to shop with the girls, have some fun, and talk to me!

You are welcome to bring au pair friends from other groups or agencies. I’m really excited about this fun and unique shopping trip/meeting and I hope you are too! If you have any questions just let me know!

Again, I highly encourage you to come at 2:00. This will give you more time to shop, more time to get to know each other, chat, and have some girly shopping fun. Please let me know if you can come at 2:00 and we will find a place to meet.
