BAMBI News October 2019

  View PDF   Dear BAMBI members, Welcome to October! This month we are talking about looking after our mental wellness.  As a busy mother, I know that the best way to look after my mental wellness is to be physically active through sports and regular exercise! In Japan, where I came from, October has been the official month of  SPORTS month since the Tokyo Olympics in 1964! Coincidentally, BAMBI is running a few sports events this month.
  • The Japanese Bumps and Baby coffee group will have a petite exercise time with babies using parachutes and balls!
  • On the 14th, we are having a family fun tennis event where kids and all parents can enjoy tennis and do some fun sports!
  • And last but not least, we are inviting a Balletone instructor to BAMBI Me-Time for on October 30th. Balletone is a great workout, and as you might have guessed, it’s derived from Ballet and uses some of the principles of ballet dancing.
Please come and join in. I will be participating in all these events and would love to see you there! As you might know, I officially stepped down from the Chairwoman post in September. I am still helping out as Acting Chairwoman until BAMBI finds a new Chairwoman. Volunteers run BAMBI, and we have playgroups daily and a few other events monthly. We would love to continue supporting our members and keep such a beautiful community continuing well into the future. For us to do so, we urgently need more volunteers. We are looking for a Treasurer, Website Assistant, Media Assistant, Promotional Designer, and Assistant Editor, to name a few. Please read the “BAMBI NEEDS YOU’ page in this magazine, and if you are interested in being a part of our team, please email me at Finally, I would like to say a humble and heartfelt thank you to all BAMBI volunteers for their hard work and to all BAMBI members for supporting BAMBI. See you soon at our events!   Akiko Cayne Acting Chairwoman, BAMBI   View PDF
