The Kalamazoo Moms Group was started in April of 2010. We are a group for Stay-at-Home Moms and Work-Outside-The-Home-Moms in the Kalamazoo area. The goal of The Kalamazoo Moms Group is to provide moms the opportunity to establish friendships for themselves and their children in our wonderful community.
This is a great place to meet other moms and introduce your child to his/her new playmates, not to mention getting to know some of the most active, intelligent, thoughtful and creative moms in Kalamazoo County! New mommies are welcome to join us as we find the the babies love watching the bigger kids play and explore!
The Kalamazoo Moms Group does have a limit of 35 active members. If we are at capacity, you can still request to join. You will be placed on our waiting list until a spot opens up. When a spot does become available, we will contact the moms on our waiting list.
Any interested mom who would like to join The Kalamazoo Moms Group will be contacted by an organizer. We must meet all new moms in a public place beforehand to ensure the safety of all current active members and children. After this initial meeting the new mom will have complete access to the meet-up group website. No mom will be denied membership. If you feel you will be unable to attend at least two meetup per month, this group is not for you. Our members are committed to making long lasting friendships for themselves and their children.
Participation: All active members are required to attend a minimum of two meet-ups or events every thirty days to remain active. If a member does not fulfill this requirement that member will automatically be removed from the group and considered inactive. If a member has three no shows to play dates, they will be removed from the group in that case as well.
Dues: All members of The Kalamazoo Moms Group are required to pay yearly membership dues of $12 ($1 per month) to assist in the cost of maintaining the meet-up website and other event/activities. Memberships dues must be paid by January 1st of every new year and by cash or check only to the group Organizer. If you fail to pay your dues by January 1st, you will be removed from the group. Dues are non-refundable.
We do a variety of activities including home play dates (many of which are themed and educational), park visits and library meetups plus outings to other fun places such as the Kalamazoo Valley Museum, Binder Park Zoo, Kids Play ETC, and Jungle Joe's. We also enjoy family activities such as summer barbecues, ice cream in the park and family holiday parties. And we like to get together for Mom's Nights Out and In, which we all know we deserve!
If you have any further questions, please feel free to e-mail the organizers through meetup. Be sure to add firstname.lastname@example.org to your email account's address book to make sure you can receive emails from the group. Otherwise notices and correspondence will likely be sent into a "bulk" mail or trash folder.
Thank you for your interest in the best moms group in town!
