Playgroups and Supper Clubs


Playful PandasPandas

The Playful Pandas is a supper club and playgroup. Families generally live in or near Denton County.

We welcome all families no matter where you are in the process of adopting. We have a large group of mostly elementary and middle school-aged kids.

We usually meet on the third Saturday of each month, but some months will vary according to holidays. We meet for dinner at restaurants in the Denton area at 6:30. When the weather is good, we also may meet at a nearby park at 5:00 to play before dinner.

Please contact Tammie for details or to be added to the mailing list.


Saturday SproutsSprouts

The Saturday Sprouts is a playgroup and supper club that meets several times during the month for playtime and socializing with other families who have adopted or are in the process of adopting children from China.

Members are generally from the northern suburbs of Collin, Denton and Dallas counties, including Plano, Frisco, Flower Mound and Irving. However, all are invited to join us, no matter your location or where you are in the adoption process.

Consisting of preschool through elementary school aged children, the playgroup meets at different area locations on the 1st and 3rd Saturday of the month and is geared towards preschool and school-aged activities. However, we encourage younger and older children, fathers, and the entire family to attend.

We also meet for dinner on the 2nd Saturday night of the month for food and friendship. Information about upcoming outings is posted on our Yahoo group. Click here to join.

Other Groups of Interest


Girl Scout Troop 3352GSA Logo

FCC Girl Scout Troop 3352 typically meets on the first Saturday of the month. This is our second year for our troop and we are a multi-level group with girls in Kindergarten, First and Second grade. We plan to add a grade each year and currently have 21 scouts. Our girls are from the Dallas-Fort Worth area including, Dallas, Plano, Rockwall, Coppell, Denton and Mansfield.

Troop 3352 is a great way for your daughter to maintain her cultural ties and to develop friendships with other girls adopted from China. Our mission is to educate troop members about Asian cultures through traditional Girl Scout activities and programs. We also include non-Asian activities and encourage giving back to the community. This troop has provided our girls with fun and invaluable experiences. This year we have planned the Mid-Autumn Festival, Chinese table manners, Chinese fan dancing, camping and much more.

Girls cannot JOIN two troops (Troop 3352 and School Troop). They will need to JOIN one (that means pay the $12 national membership fee) and AUDIT the other (not pay national fee). You can choose which troop you want to JOIN and AUDIT the other. Troops 3352 have a mixture of decisions. Note: Scouts can only sell GS cookies for the troop they JOIN.

 If you are interested in participating in Troop 3352, please contact Kimberly for the forms and information on the yahoo group. Always check the yahoo group for the latest update on Troop 3352 meetings.
