What we're about

Our goal in Lancaster County Moms Meetup group is to give Lancaster Moms the opportunity to meet other friendly local moms and their children. We try to give those moms a neutral place to be able to meet others, ask questions, and have fun! Come to a Moms Meetup to share experiences, find advice, give support and make new friends. Moms of all races, religions, and backgrounds are welcome in our group. Meetups include home and park play dates, mom's night out, craft nights, book club nights, family events, and more!

Just a note, we do not tolerate any promoting or selling in our group. If you are looking to network this group is not for you. We are here to make friends not customers.

Member obligations: Members should read the Constitution & Bylaws of the group. By joining our group, members agree to our group policies and are expected to follow them. If you violate our policies the leadership team will review the situation and you may be asked to leave the group. Members are expected to pay the $12/year due. That fee covers the operating costs of the site and it is also a bit of a security measure.

Group Policies:

If you violate our policies you will be given a warning. After three warnings you will be removed from the group. The President and leadership team reserve the right to remove members at any time for violating policies.

In person Meetups will be paused if there is a county ban on in person gatherings.

All hosts have the right to ask about vaccination status of those attending their in-home Meetups. Guests must follow the host’s preferences which must be stated clearly in the event description.

Public Meetups must follow the Covid-19 policies of the host facility.

You may see that some meetups have a waitlist. Don’t be afraid to add your name to the waitlist! Last minute cancellations happen often and there's a very good chance you may get to attend. If you sign up for a waitlisted event keep an eye on that event.

Please keep the germs at home! We follow the same guidelines as most schools/daycares: If your child is sick, please do not attend any meetups until your child has been fever/ symptom-free for at least 24 hours. If you were at a meetup and your child ends up sick that evening or following day, it’s courteous to tell anyone you saw at the previous meetup.

When hosting a meetup that requires a payment upfront the host should handle the money: whether that be through their personal PayPal or members paying the host directly. The meetup site and the moms' group PayPal can NOT be used for this.

Moms will get sign-ups for 13 meals following the birth (adoption etc..) of a baby. You will get 5 meals for illness/injury/difficult times.

Some of our members and their families run their own businesses, and we want to support them! We ask that you do not advertise your services on the Facebook page wall. However, you may suggest your services if someone is looking for recommendations. You may NOT host a Meetup that would be a financial gain for you or your business. If you are looking to support our members, we have a list of member run businesses in the Files section of our Facebook page you may refer to. If you have a business you would like to be added to our list, please contact a leadership member. We will have once a week spam me posts on our private B/S/T page where you can post links to your businesses.

Direct Sales parties: We do not allow Facebook posts about direct sales parties or businesses.

Politics: We are not affiliated with any political party.

Religion: We are not affiliated with any religion or religious group

Malicious gossip, verbal/physical attack, or any ‘mean girl’ type of behavior against another member will not be tolerated and result in the possibility of you being removed from the group. Racist/homophobic/sexist/otherwise intolerant language will not be tolerated. The president and leadership team have the right to remove any member for these offenses.

Facebook Conduct: The goal of our Facebook page is to build a supportive community that is a supplement to in-person connections. Be respectful of differing opinion, cultures, child rearing philosophies and lifestyles. Judging, bullying, and/or shaming is not permitted. Discussion of banned topics will not be allowed and posts will be deleted. Leadership has the right to lock threads as well as ban members who violate rules.
