Welcome to the Working Mom’s Playgroup (Franklin/Bellingham Area!)
We are an affiliate of the Working Mom’s Playgroup, Inc. which is a nonprofit corporation and a 501(c)3 publicly-supported charity registered with the IRS.
Geographic Region The Working Mom’s Playgroup (Franklin/Bellingham Area), is geared towards mothers residing in the towns of Franklin, Bellingham, Mendon, Medway, Millis, Norfolk, Wrentham, and other surrounding towns. We believe it is important for all mothers to foster relationships with fellow moms residing within their close community. Mothers who live outside this catchment area will be encouraged to work with the main corporation, Working Mom’s Playgroup, Inc., to develop a chapter in her local area. Women who are not mothers, as well as those living outside of the listed communities who wish to join, are subject to the approval from the Chapter Officers.
Annual Dues Membership Fees are $25.00, to be paid within 1 month of joining and renew annually.
