    The Working Parents' Forum invites members to come to Butler's Orchard on October 30, 2021 at 1 PM.  There is apple and raspberry picking on weekends and people can pick out last minute pumpkins before Halloween! 

    We’re meeting up for the Pumpkin Festival at Butler’s Orchard! APABA-DC is providing Banh Mi, but attendees must purchase a separate ticket to enter the orchard and Pumpkin Festival. There is a two step registration. First, register with APABA-DC to order your Banh Mi, then please purchase your entry tickets here directly from Butler’s asap because they often sell out on weekends!

    Looking forward to seeing everyone!


    Please RSVP to by October 20 so we can get a head count as we will also provide some Banh Mi! In your RSVP, please indicate whether you'd like Bahn Mi and what type (combination, grilled pork, or chicken). 

    APABA-DC follows all CDC and local guidelines. Masks are required indoors. By attending this event, you acknowledge that you understand and agree to assume voluntarily the potential risks related to any exposure to the COVID-19 virus in connection with the event.

    APABA-DC invites you to a fun (virtual) night of painting and networking with your fellow members on November 19, 2021 at 6:30PM! Connect with members of all backgrounds to discuss legal career development tips while creating a one of a kind masterpiece. There will be a live instructor to guide you through every step of the process, so all skill levels are welcome. As we paint, we will also be breaking out into smaller groups for opportunities to get to know one another (and each other's paintings) better. You won't want to miss out!  


    Please note that this event will be limited to 15 painters, so please RSVP by November 5, 2021 (or at your earliest convenience to secure your spot). Additionally, when registering, we will ask that you please provide a shipping address to receive your painting kit. If you have any questions, please direct them to par@apaba-dc.org. We look forward to painting with you!
