FUN THINGS TO DO!

 

(NOTE: LINKS NEED TO BE UPDATED- website under construction May 2017):

Being a stay-at-home mom is one of the most rewarding and challenging jobs we will ever be given.  Unfortunately, at times it can also be isolating– but it doesn’t have to be!  Each month our activity calendar includes opportunities for you and your children to meet new friends and have fun together. There are park days, playgroups, arts and crafts, local educational trips and much more. We also participate in community service that benefits mothers and children in our area.  And– the more you put into the club, the more you (and everyone else!) will get out of it.  Members are encouraged to suggest and/or host events- so if you know of something interesting in the community and want company, post about it!  There might be other moms who would love to join you!

Our members also have the option to participate in our online private Facebook group to plan activities, share photos and information, discuss whatever is on our minds, and ask each other questions.
