Dental Derby, Play Escape, & Emergency Planning- Before Hurricane Matthew!

Led by one of our own mom experts in care management, Sandhills MOPS discussed in-depth how to craft an emergency care plan for their families at last week's meeting- just in time for hurricane Matthew!  In addition to discussing wills, trusts, healthcare directives, and powers of attorney, our moms were instructed on best practices for creating a simple instructional plan for potential caregivers in the event she and/or her husband become incapacitated.  Although a less pleasant subject, many moms left the meeting uplifted upon having learned something new about what to include in emergency documents and how to ease the duties of those who step-in to care for our loved ones during emergencies.

Every momma also left the meeting knowing exactly who'd they contact for help in a case of the unexpected.  So many of our mommas were willing to volunteer as emergency contacts for new moms to our group, showing just how supportive this organization is during times of need.  This support was evidenced further when moms opened their homes, made meals, and offered to help in numerous ways after hurricane Matthew rocked our area and left countless Sandhills MOPS families without power for days.  Thankfully no one had to to utilize their emergency care plans over the weekend, but everyone was offered loving support from our MOPS community!


Before the emergency planning discussion, Sandhills MOPS welcomed business owners of two local businesses- Dental Derby and Play Escape.  Doctor Jose Cangas and his wife Yashira own the unique, and appropriately fitting to our area, equestrian themed Dental Derby Pediatric Dentistry, where kiddos climb atop Stewball the racehorse for pictures and earn derby dollars to purchase cool prizes after each visit.  Nominated this year as one of the areas Best Dental Practices in Moore County's Best of the Pines, Dr. Cangas and his staff have an excellent rapport with children and the community. Dental Derby celebrated it's 2nd birthday last week, and Sandhills MOPS received the first preview of the video celebrating the business's success. This video is another example of the supportive community in which we live!


Dental Derby generously donated a one year membership to Play Escape, and it's owner Aslynn Rust joined us to present the membership card to our raffle winner!  Aslynn owns the area's only 4,200 square feet indoor play area, where kids can run, jump, climb, crawl, slide and bounce while parents easily watch their children from comfortable seats near the in-house coffee bar and cafe. Play Escape was voted 'Best Non-Sport Program for Kids' and 'Best Place to Take Kids on a Rainy Day' in Moore County's Best of the Pines awards.  Aslynn shared her inspirational story of how she took a chance on an idea that was not supported by industry experts, and in turn, proved those opinions wrong with a hugely successful business in less than a year of opening her doors. Both Aslynn and Dental Derby's generosity made one lucky momma very happy!

 

Lastly, we especially thank the orange table for providing us a delicious and festively fall brunch!
