FREE Mother’s Day 2021 Community Picnic, May 9, Savannah

In honor of Maternal Mental Health month, the Maternal Mental Health Collective will host a Mother’s Day community picnic at Forsyth Park.

You’re invited: Sun. May 9 2021, 10AM-noon. This gathering welcomes any and all Savannah-area mamas (including those who are pregnant).

Bring a picnic to the park for this free, fun, laidback outdoor meet-up. Stop by on your way to your Mother’s Day plans – or stay the whole time. Bring something to sit on, something to eat, and yourself just as you are. Cold beverages and lots of good company will be provided. You’re welcome to bring your kids and family with you, or not.

All moms deserve care, support, and social connection – and this pandemic year has been long and so isolating for many moms. Come on out to make new friends, relax in the springtime (at a safe, outdoor distance), and find your community. The group will gather in the grass near the bandshell and playground.

Please spread the word within your networks and let organizers know if you have any questions. Find more info here.
