After several MIPA alumni and grandparents volunteered at our Circus event last year, we realized there is a great opportunity to extend our MIPA community. We’re reaching out to the larger Mercer Island community beyond parents and primary caretakers – specifically to other friends, family, and community members who are motivated to enhance the lives of preschool-aged children. Our goal is to connect others in our community to MIPA’s mission and outreach efforts and give people the opportunity to volunteer at our events. We also look forward to learning from the experiences of past MIPA members and sharing MIPA’s rich history with our current members.
If you can’t attend the meeting, but are still interested in joining, please feel free to contact Elizabeth at the e-mail address above.
