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.

March 2017 Presidents Letter


Hello MOMS Club® of Uwchlan Hills PA,



I hope this finds you having a wonderful day! I have no idea where the time is going so I sincerely apologize for the lateness of this letter. Things around my house has been nuts as I am sure you all can imagine!



A recap of March: we had a great time at Bounce U on the 8th and I am sure everyone had a ball at the 3 & 4 year old playgroup meetup and there was story time at the Wellington Square Book Store on the 21st. The H Family also welcomed their newest addition, a baby girl – congratulations again!



Our 2017 Bake Sale Fundraiser on March 16th was a great success with having raised $110.00 for the Downingtown Library. Thank you to all those who planned, baked and (wo)manned  the table! We received a wonderful letter from the Library thanking us for our efforts. SP posted a picture of it, yeah!



So it is about that time again to get those wheels spinning and drum up some interest for the 2017/2018 Board and Committees!! The various position descriptions are posted in the Files second on Facebook, they are called:  “UH Moms Club Committees” and “MOMS Club Board Positions”. PLEASE take a second and 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 rest of your week!





Best,

Tara Thistlethwaite

February 2017 Presidents Letter


Hello MOMS Club® of Uwchlan Hills PA,



Are all of you ready for winter to be over like we are? Those couple of gorgeous days definitely spoiled us making these past two days feel especially freezing!



A recap of February happenings included an adventure at the American Helicopter Museum with DR and SK. A winner of a night at the Quizzo MNO and a great morning coffee at Chick-fil-A with CH, KR, LD and SS.  



A reminder about our 2017 Bake Sale Fundraiser: Thursday, March 16th from 9:30am to 2:00pm at the Downingtown Library, yummy! With a theme of “Rainbow of Colors” to coincide with the story time theme that session so if you are up for making something feel free to make it festive!
