Michelle was on a hunt for a place to host the Annual Special Needs Parents Meet and Dine. She needed it to be far different from the previous locations. Something cozy, quite, and calm. However, despite her effortless search, the results never seemed to meet her needs.

That was before Estelle, the function co-ordinator, told her of a cozy little restaurant around the corner. It had a rusty feel and look yet provided room for small group gatherings. You see, the meet-up was intended for these  parents to network with one another, share ideas and challenges while finding solutions the numerous problems they faced on a daily basis. All this was to be done in small groups of four people.

On seeing it, Michelle was thrilled and elated because the search was finally over and her dreams were getting fulfilled. She was sure that these parents would get to mingle with one another in a comfortable and surreal environment.

  1. This is a great idea for a meet and greet for the parents! Lovely story! I wanted to remind you to link up your story to the InLinkz story board (blue froggy button). If you need directions, I will be happy to email them to you.


  2. Nice take. I can’t see it as a place for young or middle aged parents to meet and discuss their lives in mid-day but I guess if it’s more of restaurant you’re picturing it works. Interesting story.


    • Oh yes, I get your point. However, I looked at it from the angle of the organiser looking for a change of venues and feel. I guess, I needed to add, ‘reserved venue for the day’, haaa.

      • Oh that’s good then. I see what you mean. It is nice because it is a different kinds of venue. Maybe makes the conversations go easier and gives you something to talk about if you;re new to the Mom’s group.
