Reflections of the Launch Party

By on September 18, 2018 0 7711 Views

We made our editorial debut among dozens of local families, businesses and organizations at Aim High Park on Saturday.

The launch party was our way of saying ‘Thank You’ to everyone who came on-board to kick-start our new venture. By inviting our contributors, advertisers and community partners, along with their children and family members; I believe we were able to give everyone a special afternoon of simple fun with the chance to get a first look at the final result.


Thank you to Aim High Park for being our party host. I believe it was the best setting for our big reveal because of their large facility and all the right play areas to bring out the kid in all of us. I don’t think it’s possible to bounce on a trampoline or try out the giant, red slide and not get excited.

A special thanks to all of the Aim High Park’s staff for helping us throughout the event. They made everything incredibly accommodating. We truly appreciated the extra hands and hospitality! And thank you to EVERYONE who helped us with special gifts of gratitude with our door prizes and loot bags. We received a lot of appreciation – AND SMILES – and that’s because of you.

Check out the video I put together to see how our community came together to help us on this new journey. We could not have done this alone and we look forward to new partnerships and opportunities to discover.

Our first publication is only the beginning and we thank everyone for joining us on this new venture. To view it, go to www.ymmparent.ca!
