The Bayonne Moms Meetup Group's mission is to be a safe place where moms can go to meet other moms in the community. This meetup group has a calendar with all kinds of mom/kid gatherings, play dates, field trips, family get togethers, moms only meetups, a book club and more. We welcome all Bayonne moms (or moms willing to travel to Bayonne for meetups) to join us for fun times and friendship! We are a friendly group that enjoys the diversity of Bayonne and invites all moms to participate.
Dues and Membership Policy
After clicking "Join Us" and filling out the member profile (including uploading a picture of yourself), you will soon receive an email with a list of upcoming "Meet and Greet" events. All new members must attend a "Meet and Greet" or be vouched for by an existing group member before we allow access to our website and calendar. In this day and age of internet predators, we feel this step is important for the safety of our children. We're sure you understand. If you found us through an existing member of the group, please have her contact Stacey or Rebecca to vouch for you. You will then be allowed to join without the need to attend a “Meet and Greet” event.
Our current dues are $20 and renew annually every September. We use our dues to pay Meetup.com website fees and to hold two family parties a year-- one near Valentine’s Day, our "Sweetheart Soiree", and our annual “Summer Bash!” Dues can be paid to your host at the “Meet & Greet” or within 7 days by PayPal. Dues will be prorated for new members based on the month they join our group.
We hope you decide to be a part of our group but if you change your mind anytime within the first 30 days after joining, you will receive a full refund of the dues.
Member participation is vital to our group and we encourage all members to attend and host meetups. All members must attend at least one meetup every two months to maintain membership. Members who do not consistently attend meetups may be removed from the group at the discretion of the organizers.
When attending meetups, please RSVP in a timely manner so that the host knows who will attend. Treat these RSVPs as if you were meeting your best friend, call the host if you will be late or cannot make it. Members who consistently "no show" may be asked to leave the group.
Make This Meetup Group Your Own!
In order for this group to have a full calendar with activities that are enjoyable and work for all members, we ask that each member host a minimum of one event per year. Hosting is very simple and the venue is up to you. The possibilities are endless: play dates at your house, play dates at a park, field trips to zoos, indoor playgrounds, museums, moms only events, and anything else you would like to do! After joining our group, you will learn more about how easy it is to host an event and plan a fun activity.
This group follows the Golden Rule: "Do to others as you would have done to you." We understand that within any group of people conflicts and issues may arise but we expect this group to be a "No Drama Zone."
We hope to meet you soon!
Stacey and Rebecca
