August President's Letter

Happy August MOMS Club® of Uwchlan Hills, PA,

It’s August! We have one last precious month of summer fun. Families are busy spending time at the shore, attending family reunions, visiting state and national parks, splashing in the pools, enjoying popsicles, grilling on the back patio, oohing over fireworks, and staying up late. Our club has traditionally been nearly non-existent over the summer months, which is a wonderful indication that our Moms are busy with their families having summer fun. We wish you the best for the rest of the summer, and hope that you will jump right in and join us for many fun activities starting in the fall.

Things to look forward to this fall:  MOMS Club kickoff party, playgroups starting up their regular meetings, a club favorite the Trunk or Treat, Moms night outs, and other great events. I encourage you to make a personal goal to attend a new activity or reach out and make a new friend in the club this year. If you don’t feel like anyone is welcoming and talks to you, it’s probably because she feels new, awkward, and is waiting for someone to welcome her as well. So jump in with both feet and let’s make it fun.

In the four years that I’ve been a member of the club, I had never attended a Moms Night Out. I went to my first one last month with CZ, JN, and AJ. I didn’t know exactly what they looked like as I had only met several of them briefly – did I feel awkward looking up their phone numbers and trying to call them while standing in the restaurant lobby. YES! Did it stop me, nope! We had so much fun, and I was glad that I went. I’m looking forward to many fun activites and friendship this year and hope that you are too.  

Happy summer!
