Our Mom of the Month Program honors moms for making strides in fitness, motherhood and life and gives us a chance to get to know them better at the same time! February's Mom of the Month is Sharon Morris (aka Alexander's mom)!
Sharon's hard work during class and amazing attendance record have really paid off... every time we see her there's less of her to look at! She is getting so fit and trim that we wanted to honor her efforts and encourage other moms with her success story. Sharon has also agreed to serve as our Playgroup Co-Captain starting in February and will be planning and coordinating our playgroup activities with our current Playgroup Captain, Nora!
It has been a joy to get to know Sharon this Fall/Winter and to call her our friend. Here are a few interesting facts about Sharon to help you get to know her even better...
