LOCATION - We have TWO meetings each month, a Series meeting in PENTICTON on the 3rd Tuesday and an Enrichment meeting in SUMMERLAND on the 4th Tuesday. If you would like to receive monthly meeting reminders by email, please send an email to pentictonlllc@gmail.com and ask to be added to the email reminder list. Meeting notices are also posted on our Facebook Page "Penticton/Summerland LLLC".

NOVEMBER SERIES MEETING TUESDAY, November 21, IN PENTICTON, 10 am to noon. The Concorde building Activity Room, 3235 Skaha Lake Rd, Penticton (Yes, it is an Assisted Living Residence! **See more info below.)

Our beginning discussion topic will focus on breastfeeding challenges - how to avoid them if possible, how to work with them if they come anyway. Then we will go on to whatever else you want to talk about and of course learn some new things from each other along the way.

Your experience is so much more important to others than you might appreciate - sharing your thoughts, ideas and experience is one of the things that makes a meeting work. Moms find that just being in the room with other breastfeeding moms pretty much guarantees you will pick up more than you thought possible.

Come join us and connect with others who are interested in breastfeeding and parenting, just like you. A series meeting is jam packed with breastfeeding information and shared ideas, with lots of room for questions and contributions.

LLLC gatherings are open to breastfeeding parents from all backgrounds, family structures, gender, and sexual orientations. Babies and parenting partners are always welcome.

Sandra Yates, LLLC Accredited Leader: 250-494-1894 sandrayates@telus.net Please call, email or PM me if you need more information about the meeting or if you have any questions about breastfeeding. I will be happy to talk with you.

NOVEMBER ENRICHMENT/SOCIAL  MEETING TUESDAY, November 28, IN SUMMERLAND, 10 am to noon. Summerland Senior's Village, 12803 Atkinson Road, Summerland (next to the Medical Centre), Theatre room on the 2nd floor. (**More location info below.)

Another chance this month to talk about the mothering journey and breastfeeding on the 28th in Summerland! Penticton moms of course are welcome, and this is an opportunity for Summerland moms to participate with only a very short drive! Come join us to give and get mother-to-mother support and information - and also breakfast! I will have muffins and tea available, or you can bring your own breakfast. Our enrichment topic will come from one of the issues discussed at the Series meeting.
