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 who will be 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: www.momsclub.org

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.

Spring 2018 President's Letter

Uwchlan Hills MOMS Club®
Spring 2018 Newsletter



Hello MOMS Club® of Uwchlan Hills PA,



Spring is finally here! After what seemed to be an especially long winter this year, I can not wait for sun and warmer weather!

As you may remember, we took a vote on the frequency of the club's newsletters and we decided to change our newsletters from monthly to quarterly. Modern times have caught up to us and our Facebook page has been our primary means of staying connected and informed of club happenings. Everything from the newsletter can be found on our page, however I am happy to write to you all to personally to say hi and provide a summery of what has been going on and things that my be in the works. The last time I wrote to the club was back in January so we have a lot to catch up on!

First off, we had a few new members join the club. I would like to welcome AP and her two sons, F and J. I would also like to welcome MG and her children G, K, and L. I hope to meet you all soon!

We also had a couple births to announce. Congratulations to AB and family on their new arrival E! Another Congratulations to SK and family on their new baby girl B! A new baby can be quite an adjustment, I hope you all are doing well and getting rest! If you need any help, don't hesitate to reach out to the club. That is what we are here for, mamas helping mamas!

The club has had quite a few activities in the past few months. We have had many playgroups, Moms Night Outs, Morning Coffee, and Making Music to name a few. We also had our Easter party which was a huge success! Thank you so much SK for planning and hosting. We did arts and crafts, an egg hunt, and ate so much delicious food! A great time was had by all!

We have one more party to plan before the end of the club's fiscal year and the new board takes over. This would be our End of Year Party. It should be a blast! CL's daughter and friends have offered to dress up as princesses and do a meet and greet for the kids in our club. If anyone would like to help plan this event, please let me know!

Our charity project this year will be Alex's Lemonade Stand at Uwchlan Hills Elementary School. EV has been had at work planning this event. She is thinking it will be held May 4th so save the date! Attending and assisting in this event is a great opportunity to meet some of the teachers, parents, and even the principal if you have not done so already. Keep an eye out for updates on this and other events on our Facebook page.

The end of our club's year is fast approaching which means it is time to start thinking about what you can do to keep our club functioning and growing. Our club is so important to keep moms and kids in our area connected, to support each other, and encourage valuable social skills for our children. I have met so many wonderful families and enjoyed many activities as a member and President. I hope the club stays open for many years to come but the club does not run itself. We need you! If you are interested in any of the board or committee positions for the new year, please let me know!

Best,

Keri Riley

Uwchlan Hills MOMS Club®
January 2018 Newsletter

Hello MOMS Club® of Uwchlan Hills PA,

The holiday season has come to an end. This is always such a busy time for us moms. I hope everyone was able to slow down, relax, and enjoy time with family. I was happy to see all those who came to the winter party last month. A big thank you to KC for all her help in making this event a huge success! We are now taking volunteers to assist in planning our next event in the spring. This is when we do our Easter egg hunt. If you are interested, please let me know!

In addition to the winter party, we had a few other fun activities last month. Some of us participated in Makin' Music, Morning Coffee, and/or playgroups. Unfortunately, Moms Night Out was canceled but should be back on the schedule for this month. Please check the Calendar on Facebook regularly to keep up to date with what is going on in our club!

Some of you may have heard that the school board has finally voted to build a new Uwchlan Hills Elementary School! They are still in the early stages of planning and have not determined a timeline as of yet. This is very exciting news! I will be sure to provide updates if I hear anything new.

Happy New Year!

Best,
Keri Riley

December 2017 President's Letter

Hello MOMS Club® of Uwchlan Hills PA,

I hope everyone had an enjoyable Thanksgiving! As we enter the midst of the busy holiday season, I would like to wish you all the very best! I hope all your planning, preparing, and shopping have been peaceful and you are able to relish the time with family and friends!

We have our annual holiday party coming up on Thursday, December 14 at St. Paul's church. It is shaping up to be an event you do not want to miss! Lunch and a craft for the kiddos will be provided. Come, relax, chat, and let the kids play. I hope to see you there!

If you can not make it to the holiday party, we will have some other events planned this month such as Makin' Music, Morning Coffee, and Moms Night Out. As always, we have playgroups meeting as well. If your child's playgroups does not meet, please contact your playgroup leader which is listed in this newsletter or ask a different playgroup if you can join. These groups are vital to our club and I want to make sure no one is missing out! If you have any questions or concerns about this or anything club related, I am always available to help as well.

Happy Holidays!

Best,
Keri Riley

November 2017 President's Letter


Uwchlan Hills MOMS Club®
November 2017 Newsletter

Hello MOMS Club® of Uwchlan Hills PA,

I hope everyone had a nice Halloween! We have eaten more candy than I would like to admit but we really enjoyed ourselves this year. I wanted to thank S.S. for a successful Trunk or Treat! It was great seeing everyone and all the kiddos looked adorable in their costumes. It was fun to see all the creative ways the trunks were decorated as well. We had a great turn out and was able to update the picture on our Facebook page with a group photo from the event.

In addition to the Trunk or Treat, October had our monthly Morning Coffee, Makin' Music, Exton Mall Kids Crew Halloween Party, and several playgroups. Unfortunately, Moms Night Out was canceled but should be back on for November along with some other fun events. Be sure to check our Facebook calendar to keep up to date with what is going on in our club.

We still do not have an official Party Committee but K.C. has graciously stepped up to organize the Holiday Party next month, thank you! She is fairly new to the club so if any of our seasoned Moms have any tips they want to share, I am sure it would be appreciated. She has some great ideas and I look forward to attending!

In other news I would like to welcome a new member, K.K., to the club. She has 3 daughters: E, C, and E. We also have another tiny new member: baby Q! Congratulations to T.W. and her family on their beautiful baby girl!

I want to wish everyone a happy Thanksgiving! Hope to see you all soon!

Best,
Keri Riley

October 2017 Presidents Letter

Uwchlan Hills MOMS Club®
October 2017 Newsletter


Hello MOMS Club® of Uwchlan Hills PA,

Fall is finally here! Our family has been having a blast pumpkin picking, drinking apple cider, doing corn mazes, etc. I just wish the weather would make up its mind!

I wanted to thank our Treasurer for all her efforts in collecting and depositing the yearly dues! She is really on top of things and very organized. She has already sent out a reminder for the last call for dues. The membership page and Facebook page will be updated shortly. For those who decided not to renew this year, thank you for your time with us and you will be missed!

September was a busy month for playgroups! Playgroups are an important part of our club and I was really excited to see them starting up again after a long summer break. Having our children meet with others from their future Kindergarten class is a great opportunity for social growth and is nice for the Moms too. I hope we can keep this momentum throughout the school year!

We had some other fun events on the calendar such as USTC Fun Zone, Making Music, Morning Coffee, and MNO. Unfortunately, I was unable to attend all the events but I heard USTC Fun Zone was a blast! We had a great turn out at our Morning Coffee and I enjoyed catching up with all those who attended. I also had a great time at MNO. It is nice hanging out with the kiddos but sometimes a Mama needs to do something grown up! Be sure to check out the Calendar for October. SR has been working hard organizing this years Halloween Trunk or Treat event. It is looking spooktacular, thanks SR!

In order for our club to function, we need you! We still have open spots to fill on the Board and Committee. Please consider volunteering for the Administrative VP Co-chair position or Party Committee. Kindergarten class of 2021 still needs a leader as well. It does not matter how long you have been part of the club, anyone can fill these spots! If you would be interested in being a little more involved in the club and would like more information on one of these roles, please let me know.

Best,
Keri Riley
