Check out what we have to offer
Activities – Parks and berry picking during the summer, pumpkin patches and farms in the fall and indoor amusements during the colder wet months!
MOMS n’ Muffins – This is probably our most popular event when we meet at a member’s home, chat and snack while the kids play! We’ve been having more and more home get-togethers, some morning, some afternoon, and once or twice a month we’ll do an evening/dinner potluck. MOMS Night Out – Some of our outings have been to restaurants, movies, and just hanging out at member's homes. It is nice to have a few hours of “girl time!” Seasonal Parties – These are focused on the entire family and include a summer picnic (the fire and police departments came one year), Halloween and December Holiday Party (Santa stopped by once when we went to Inflatable Kingdom). MOMS Retreats – Twice a year we have a retreat – one year we went to the coast in the spring and McMenamins Grand Lodge/Wine Tasting in the fall. It is one or two nights of relaxation.
Support Services:We recognize that there can come a time when moms need a little extra help. Support Services coordinates temporary aid for members, including: meals, help with domestic chores, emergency transportation, childcare or simply someone to listen. When a new baby arrives or when a member just needs some support, members can contact the current Support Services Coordinator. Matters are always kept confidential.
Monthly Business Meeting:We get together monthly to discuss current events in our club, and we have great speakers quarterly the touch on “mom” topics.
Service Projects:As a non-profit organization with service on our list of priorities, we will "adopt" a local mother/child related non-profit organization as our club's charity. Our goal will be to increase community awareness of this charity while aiding the organization through the support and participation of the Service Committee and other members of the MOMS Club®.
