Last November when Burb Mom was just a few weeks old, one of my friends (who at that time was one of 4 Burb Mom readers) sent me a frantic email saying, “Have you seen this?” with an e-newsletter attachment.
It was one of the first Family eGuide newsletters that outlined TONS of stuff to do in Flower Mound, Highland Village, Lewisville and surrounding areas.
We did a lot of research before we started Burb Mom and then...just a few weeks into it I find that someone else has started a very organized, informative calendar for THE VERY AREA THAT Burb Mom covered.
Of course I subscribed instantly.
At that point Family eGuide didn’t have a website and at that point Burb Mom didn’t have a newsletter so I figured that this town is big enough for both.
As Burb Mom grew and as Family eGuide grew things changed.
Burb Mom got a whole lot more chatty and less calendar-driven.
Family eGuide started a website and amassed a huge amount of information and developed what I believe is the most comprehensive area family event calendars.
So we HAD to meet Valerie Preston the brains and sweat behind Family eGuide.
We met for coffee at the Cinnabon/Schlotzsky’s in Flower Mound – a coffee which lasted 2 1/2 hours. It was so fun to meet her. We couldn’t stop talking, planning and trying to figure out how we could work together.
She is a very organized mom of two who scours over 150 sources on the internet, newspapers, etc. to put together a resource for families which is unmatched:
- Weekly newsletter full of family activities in Southern Denton County.
- Online calendar FULL of events – really, you won’t believe it until you see it.
- Website that includes everything local to Flower Mound, Highland Village, Lewisville and beyond that families would want to know.
- Special seasonal lists like summer camps, sports leagues, etc.
- Kids Eat Free list.
My favorite part of the Family eGuide website is the calendar – it is magical!
The amazing thing is that it is all there FOR FREE for parents in Southern Denton County.
When you stop by Family eGuide, be sure to sign up for the e-newsletter too.
