This marks the debut of our Mom of the Month program and the first mom to receive this honor is... (drumroll please)... Nora Bray (aka Cooper's mom)!
Nora has been coming religiously to Stroller Strides classes and Luna Moms Club activities since we started in April of 2010. She is currently serving as our Luna Moms Club Playgroup Captain and will be coordinating our playgroup, field trip, and Moms Night Out activities this fall/winter! We're all fortunate to know Nora as a classmate and friend... here are a few more details to get to know her even better!
