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:

May 2017 Presidents Letter


Hello MOMS Club® of Uwchlan Hills PA,



Ok enough of this rainy weather – right! I am so ready for some nice, warm weather! But I hope you all had a wonderful Mother’s Day and a relaxing Memorial Day Weekend!



We’ve been having some fun getting to know our members via our Member Spot Light Survey. Thank you to all those who have participated and if you still want to complete the survey the link is still up and live: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/XL9FYRF.



We had a few happenings in May: Morning Coffee at Target Park which was beautiful and quite a few of us made it out including KR, SS, CH, LD, SK and myself. There were some discussions about ramping up some marketing efforts for the club as well as the possibility of joining forces with the Lionville Moms Club.



Making Music on the 18th at St. Martha’s Villa the Bogus and the Thistlethwaite Girls enjoyed themselves and we will also make this one a monthly happening!



I wanted to again give a shout out to those who will be taking on board and committee positions next year:



·         Membership VP: SP

·         Helping Hands: LH

·         Welcoming Committee: TT

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU. We are still looking for: President, Administrative VP, Secretary, Treasurer, Party Person/Committee, Activity Person/Committee and MNO Person/Committee. If you see yourself in any of these positions I am sure the current person would be more than happy to speak with you about the role so you can get a better understand of what you will be undertaking.



Thanks everyone and have a great afternoon!



Best,

Tara Thistlethwaite

April 2017 Presidents Letter


Hello MOMS Club® of Uwchlan Hills PA,



I hope you are out enjoying this beautiful weather as it appears that Spring has arrived – yahoo! So I am thinking about putting together a little questionnaire in order to get to know all of our members better – a little Member Spotlight type of thing so be on the lookout for that soon! I also am putting together a small survey of club happenings to get your feedback on where we are a club so another one to be on the lookout for. If you all could take a second and complete these when they hit your inbox that would be greatly appreciated.



A recap of April’s fun festivities:  KR, SK and I made it out to the Chester County Art Association Mommy and Me Class which was adorable! Thanks for organizing that KR! Everyone had a blast at the Spring Party and Egg Hunt hosted at DD’A house. Thank you again party committee for organizing and DD'A for hosting! We had an ok Morning Coffee on the 17th – it was apparently free breakfast day at Chick-fil-A, which I didn’t know about ahead of time, yikes – so it was extremely crowded and we didn’t get to have a nice of a morning as I would have liked. MNO at Appetites on Main on the 26th was very fun.



So now is where I get to make my pitch about next year’s Board and Committee position fulfillment.  I have just updated the position descriptions so they should be nice and easy to find on Facebook. PLEASE check them out and let me know if you have any questions or are interested in taking on a role next year!



Thanks everyone and have a great afternoon!





Best,

Tara Thistlethwaite
