What is MOMS® Club?

What is MOMS® Club
MOMS Club® stands for "Moms Offering Moms Support."

The International MOMS Club® is an organization that supports stay-at- home Moms. Chapters are created geographically and our chapter covers the Lionville/Exton area and includes all Moms of children attending Uwchlan Hills Elementary school. Any Mom can join the MOMS Club. The international organization was created to support stay-at-home Moms; our chapter is true to this ideal, but also includes many Moms who work part or full-time. They join us for events that fit into their schedule, and we welcome them.

Most MOMS Club activities are DURING THE DAY when you are home with your children and need support. Our favorite activities are the weekly playgroups. We have playgroups for infants up to half-day kindergarteners. These playgroups are a great way for Moms to connect with other Moms who have children the same age. It is also a great way for children who will attend Uwchlan Hills Elementary School to get to know their future classmates BEFORE they even attend the school or for homeschooled children to meet their neighborhood peers. Playgroups aren't the only fun we have, here are more things that we do:

-Holiday Parties
-Lunch Bunches
-Weekly Outings
-Crafts
-Playgroups
-Impromptu Playdates
-Morning Coffee Meetups
-Music Classes
-Moms' Night Out
-Service Projects Benefitting Children


On an international level, the MOMS Club is a non-profit and nondenominational organization with more than 2,000 chapters worldwide. This chapter serves Moms whose children are in the Downingtown Area School District and whose children would be attending Uwchlan Hills Elementary School. To find another chapter, visit the International MOMS Club® website:

We would love to have you join our chapter! You may attend up to two meetings before deciding to join. To sign up you need to fill out the membership application, liability form, and pay a yearly $20.00 fee.

December 2016 Presidents Letter

Hello MOMS Club® of Uwchlan Hills PA,

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Sorry for the delayed letter this month, the craziness from the holidays seems to have carried over into the New Year, yeah! But that said January is looking like a pretty low key month for the club. I just sent out a Facebook poll for the next Morning Coffee at Chick-fil-A, so please let me know what date works for you. I will also be sending out a Facebook poll for the February Morning Coffee dates and locations along with some ideas for group outings. I want to get more outings on the books for 2017 which seaways beautifully into my ongoing request for an Activity Chair. If anyone is interested PLEASE let me knowJ.

Wishing all of you a joyous and healthy 2017!

Best,
Tara Thistlethwaite

November 2016 Presidents Letter


Hello MOMS Club® of Uwchlan Hills PA,



I hope you all had a wonderful time with the kiddos Trick-or-Treating and are gearing up for some fun Holidays, and I thought September flew by, October was a blur!



October’s morning coffee was at Laura Hartman’s house, thank you again for hosting! We had some great play dates including the one Parker and I crashed today at Bounce U – super fun! Last call for membership renewal; please send your membership dues to CH by Friday, November 11th!! The Facebook Group will be updated and the roster will be sent out by November 18th.



We had a great time at our October MNO at the Pour House as well as the Trunk or Treat, thank you JB and LD and the Party Planning Committee: DD’A, SG, BM!! I am trying to get a Downingtown Playdium group play date together and it appears that Wednesday, December 7th is in the lead for date of choice for the majority but take a second and cast your vote on Facebook.  



We are also still looking to fill the Activity and Welcoming Committee seats so if you are interested PLEASE let me know. Thanks in advance!



Happy Autumn!

Best,

Tara Thistlethwaite
