This is a group for local stay-at-home and working moms who wish to connect with other moms in the area, creating friendships and memories for the whole family! MOSI offers a wide variety of fun meet-ups such as playtime at the park, in-home play dates, story- time at the library and other library events, lunch dates, arts and crafts, family gatherings, game nights, and much more. Occasionally, the moms will get together for a "Mom's Night," either hosted by a member, or at a local restaurant.
The success of this group is based on the participation from the mothers. Every six months members sign for various roles with in the group, for example zoo coordinator. This allows responsibilities and planning to be shared across the group without any one person taking on too much. Each volunteer role position would be responsible for one play group a month, unless otherwise specified, within the category they choose. Positions rotate and open twice a year. Members are encouraged to volunteer for a position once a year.
This group is for children of ALL ages, though most meet-ups are focused towards the ages of 0-5 (if you have an older child, the host will do their best to accommodate, so events can be fun for them, too). Dads are welcome to join the meet-ups as well, unless noted otherwise on the particular event's description.

"In March of 2014, I created Moms of Southern Indiana as a way to meet other local moms who were interested in getting our children together for play dates. Since then, MOSI has grown to be an AMAZING resource for moms by giving us a platform to connect with each other, share support, and gain friendships for ourselves and our children. As my family now relocates to another state, I feel so thankful that our time in Southern Indiana was filled with such fun and love because of this group. I am honored to be a small part of the incredible things MOSI will continue to do for moms in this area!" -Jenifer Jo Scott, Founder of Moms of Southern Indiana, June 2016
