Mission Statement: Our group's mission is to be a safe place where moms can go to meet other moms in the community and for our children to interact and play with each other. This meetup group has a calendar with all kinds of mom/kid gatherings, play dates, field trips, family get togethers, and more. There is a playdate almost every day on the calendar for you to choose from! We love to have an active group and whole heartedly believe that the more you put in, the more you get out of the group. We want to get to know you and your kiddos.
Dues and Membership Policy: REQUESTING NEW MEMBERS: PLEASE INCLUDE YOUR EMAIL IN YOUR ABOUT ME SECTION WHEN APPLYING TO JOIN THE GROUP. 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 Greets." All new members must attend a "Meet and Greet" 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.
Our current dues are $15 and are renewed annually at the beginning of each year. We use our dues to pay Meetup.com website fees and any other expenses needed such as for our annual family meet-up, holiday party, and Easter Egg hunt. Dues can be paid within 7 days of joining via our Finance chair, Melanie. Please contact her at Lsumelaniem@yahoo.com. Dues can be paid via cash/check or Paypal.
Hosting/Attendance Policy: Mommy and Me Playgroup thrives through the generosity of its members and our community. Therefore, we ask that all of our members plan at least 1 playdate a month and attend at least 1 playdate a month. This policy is in place to ensure that all members have a say about what events take place within the playgroup. 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, and anything else you would like to do! Adults only events such as; Mom’s Night Out, social gatherings/parties, and brunches are also welcome ideas. After joining our group, you will learn more about how easy it is to host an event and plan a fun activity. We request that new members host a playdate within 30 days. Moms with newborns are given a 3 month hiatus to the attendance requirements.
