Welcome to the Moms and Dads of Astoria Meetup Group!
Our group was founded in 2009 by new mom Jorli. She began it as a way to connect with friends in a place where many of us might not know other parents or have family nearby. The goal of our group is to encourage friendship, support and activities for our members as well as the greater Astoria community. We welcome all family structures, and hope that moms & dads, moms & moms, dads & dads, single parents and involved grandparents will enjoy this group and feel included.
The Moms and Dads meetup group is organized by busy parents who value community. The strength of our group is entirely dependent on member participation: please get involved! Attend a meetup, let us know what kind of events you are excited about, plan or host an event. Feel free to reach out to the organizers with any suggestions or offers of help, we love feedback.
Dues are $15 a year per family. These funds are used towards hosting workshops, events and purchasing supplies. Our meetup events are free and for the purpose of making social connections and fostering community. There is also a Moms and Dads of Astoria secret facebook page, please send Tracy a message over meetup if you would like to be added.
