This is a monthly get-together which rotates among members' homes and Milwaukee hot spots. Come solo, bring your spouse/significant other or a few friends for an opportunity to meet and mingle.
Playgroups take place weekly. During late spring, summer and early fall, we meet at local parks. During cooler months (October through March) we meet at members' homes or local indoor facilities.
In addition to the weekly playgroups, a special children's activity is organized each month. These activities include fun-filled trips and events such as: the Milwaukee County Zoo, museums, beaches, pumpkin patches, creative art days and others!
Parties and Special Events
Just give us a reason to celebrate! RSA hosts parties and special events throughout the year. For example, we host both a children's holiday party and an adult holiday party in the winter. Other special events include our winter membership drive, various holiday festivities for adults and children, and our end of the year party.
This is not a regularly scheduled activity, but is in place to set up a support network for resident spouses or significant others who need help during a particularly challenging time. We are best known for bringing dinners to families after the birth of a baby. Members may contact the Helping Hands coordinator to request help during a move, loss in the family or other circumstances. We are here to help!

It is typical for several babies to be born to RSA members each year, and our Helping Hands network provides support to new families. The children range in age from newborns to early school-age kids.
