park hop playdates graphic Summer break has arrived! Which means it’s time for the kids to burn off their excess energy and meet new friends. And it also means you have an excuse to leave the house if you want!

With this in mind, we’d like to announce the dates for our 4th annual Summer Park Hop Playdate Series!

Join us all through June & July as we meet up at different playgrounds in the city! Be sure to follow our social media for reminders of each week’s location. You choose: stay in your own community area or head out on an adventure to explore a different part of our amazing city. At each playdate, look for the MMC Park Hop sign and come say hi. Plus, sometimes we sell snacks & drinks or give away fun swag!

Collierville Vision Center logoDr. Brandon Walley, a Developmental Optometrist in Collierville, works with children that have vision problems affecting their ability to read and learn. At Collierville Vision Center, every child receives a thorough binocular vision assessment to rule out any of these issues.

1 in 4 school-aged children have vision problems, that if left untreated, can affect their ability to learn. A child with this type of vision problem can often pass a traditional vision screening because they may have 20/20 vision and appear to not have a vision problem. Even though they can see clearly, they may have trouble moving their eyes across the page and keeping their place, they may see double or their eyes may have problems focusing from near to far resulting in frustration in the classroom or other attention and learning issues.

girls on the run logoGirls on the Run of Memphis inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running. They envision a world where every girl knows and activates her limitless potential and is free to boldly pursue her dreams.
