Description

Join us for a Women’s Luncheon to hear about the Brilliance of Children – as we look behind the curtain at the Madison Children’s Museum! Brought to you by the Thrivent Member Network South WI Region.

What type of child were you? What types of activities helped you learn to be creative; to take risks; to solve problems?

We invite you to join us for a Women’s Luncheon at Olbrich Gardens on January 30th. Deb Gilpin and Dani Luckett will share the intentionality behind the “play” areas at the Museum, explore why Children’s Museums exist, and discuss how children learn and grow.

We welcome you to invite other women to join us for a luncheon with these local community advocates!

Lunch & Networking: 11:30am - Noon
Presentation: 12:00-1:00pm

Help us Live Generously! We will be collecting new crayons, colored pencils and washable markers at the event.

Please RSVP online via this Eventbrite link by Mon. January 10th.
