Are you a working (WM) or stay-at-home mother (SAHM) looking for playgroups, activities and/or events in your town or surrounding area? Come meet other moms, like yourself, and their children at The Hamilton (Mercer County, N.J.) MOMS Club® – a friendly group of 25+ stay-at-home and working moms in their 20’s, 30’s & 40’s, with children ranging from newborn to elementary school age. We are a local chapter of The International MOMS Club®, a non-profit organization.
Children are welcome at all of our activities. Our #1 purpose is to form a network of support for our moms. We host weekly playgroups, often times with crafts and guest speakers, as well as monthly Moms Night Outs. We also attend community events/activities, collectively fundraise/adopt a local charity as well as celebrate each other’s milestones.
Our club hosts two (3) weekly playgroups -every Monday, Wednesday & Friday morning. These are mentioned in The Hamilton Post’s Monthly Event Section. Many of our moms utilize these playgroups because it not only offers support, but allows for their infants and toddlers to meet other local children. We also host/plan events and activities after school hours for school-age and/or working moms as well as weekend events for families.
The MOMS Club® is not based on race, religion or financial stability. In order to join our group, moms must attend at least one (1) event so that members of our executive board can meet you and your child. Moms may attend up to two (2) events before deciding to join. Once you join, the yearly fee is $30 and this will allow you access to our Meetup and Facebook pages.
All member activities/events can be seen on our Meetup calendar and private Facebook group page (our public Facebook page is for recruiting purposes). As a precaution, we don’t allow non-members to access our Meetup/Facebook pages. This is for the safety of our members and their children.
Below are a few more benefits to joining our group:
-An elected executive board that not only manages our chapter, but coordinates with MOM’s Club International. Many of our board members have listed their elected positions on their resumes and utilized fellow board members as references for jobs after moving on from our club/children aging out.
-MOM’s Club MeetUp & Facebook page
-Different Types of Membership:
General Membership: $30. All new members must start as general members. This membership allows access to social media, all playgroups, activities and events for both moms and children.
