Thank you to everyone who attended our babysitter course and participated in the Pet Food Drive, we really appreciate the support and participation. Looking for more fun community events? We're happy to say that we've added more events and programming plans for 2019 & 2020!
Head on over to our events calendar for details about what's in-store for the rest of the year. We're looking forward to another magical event with our Winterfest Treelighting Ceremony and Holiday Festivities. But first, we're bringing back our National Night Out with the Normandy Park Police Department to celebrate in August. Keep checking our calendar for more details! Spring 2020 event planning is underway.
On a sunny Saturday morning, May 18, three boys and eleven girls settled into the Community Room in the Normandy Park city hall to spend a few hours learning new skills. CPR Seattle provided an instructor to prepare the youngsters to learn about the ins and outs of babysitting through its Babysitter Training Class and Certification.
The day included practice with partners and lots of time for questions and gaining knowledge about childcare as a neighborhood babysitter, and a delicious lunch. Diapers and toddler mannequins are among the props used to get detailed ideas across to the students. Students learned basics for infant choking and basic steps of CPR.
After a successful day of learning, the children in the class got an American Safety and Health Institute (ASHI) certificate that assured parents who are future clients that the babysitter from this class has learned about child and babysitting safety from a certified instructor. Children also learned to write a resume to help them build their skills for getting possible babysitting clients.
It is planned to have training sessions in the future for those girls and boys who want to spend some of their time doing something helpful for the adults and children in their neighborhood plus hone skills that demonstrate responsibility and earn some money too!
Happy National Police Week 2019 from the Friends of Normandy Park! To say thank you to our beloved police officers for all that you do to keep our community safe the Friends of Normandy Park board and fellow citizens organized a coffee meet-up at Empire Coffee Saturday, May 18.
Our Coffee For Cops event at Empire Coffee was a fantastic success. The gathering included perfect pastries, amazing espresso and an excellent community turnout! Thank you to all who stopped in to say hello, made donations, and a special thank you to Empire Coffee for your hospitality and kind donations. ☕️
