Welcome to our March/April Issue
This is our third “double” issue of Birmingham Parent, and this month is full of special needs and baby information. We hope you will enjoy it! We look forward to hearing from you and getting your thoughts on our magazine in 2020. The magazine is constantly changing. Be sure to give us your two cents so we know the topics that are important to YOU.
Be sure to check out our new and improved calendar of events, as well, as we are covering two months this issue, and check out a beautiful, more expanded version of our calendar online at www.birminghamparent.com. Not all events there make the print calendar.
You may be having a spring break in March or early April. If you aren’t traveling and are doing a “staycation,” be sure to check out the new calendar for great ideas. We are now highlighting everything we know to be FREE, as well. We know our calendar is a major reason you pick up Birmingham Parent month after month – we are trying to make it even better and more encompassing.
Don’t miss our Annual Special Needs Expo at our new location, Brookwood Village, on Saturday, March 14, 2020, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. It’s a great chance to see all sorts of medical supplies, health care, products, services, recreational activities and more, all under one roof. As with ALL our events, admission is always FREE. We’ll have some great giveaways, too! Come out to Brookwood and don’t miss it!
Happy Easter on April 12! Look for our next great double issue of Birmingham Parent in May/June 2020.
