CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA (April 1998) – is an extensive project of Spring Hollow Publishing, Inc.. The site is designed to be the ultimate resource for families in our community and we are committed to help our children in need by donating 10% of our proceeds to local children’s charity organizations. We want to make every aspect of a busy parent?s life easier, and enrich the lives of our children, by encouraging the precious gift of time in activities that will build healthy, happy memories. The site contains:

* A comprehensive Calendar of events and activities within the area
* A Directory to connect parents with businesses and non-profit organizations
* A community Classifieds
* A forum for parents to share advice and tips with other parents
* Informative articles
* Reviews on children?s books and products
* A club for kids to connect
* And much more!

Our listings are free of charge and can be easily submitted directly online, 24 hours a day, at anyone?s convenience. All submissions will be posted upon our approval usually within 48 hours of the business week. As a service to busy parents with full schedules, we post all activities up to 3 months in advance! We also provide listings in our Directory of Businesses and Organizations free of charge.

We believe our site is meeting a real need in our community. A survey taken of 7th graders in both Charlottesville and Albemarle County by the Girls and Boys Club revealed that an estimated 83% of families in Albemarle County alone have computers at home. As you know that number is increasing rapidly. According to census records, we expect to have an estimated 30,000 children in both our city and county by the year 2000. Clearly, our family market here in Albemarle/Charlottesville is both technically advanced and growing! We hope you?ll enjoy using the site as well as passing the news of us on to your audience. Thank You.
