September President's Newsletter

Happy September to our MOM Club® of Uwchlan Hills, PA,

With summer vacations completed and school back in session, I think we’re all settling back into a routine. That includes our MOMS Club routines as well. Playgroups have been organized and are setting up their schedules. I have asked that each playgroup has a main point of contact – a playgroup guru J. Thank you to A, S, C, and S for volunteering to head up these positions. To increase attendance at other activities, our activities chair, L, will be asking each playgroup to come up with an activity that they would like to “host.” Each playgroup will be assigned a month to host, and the playgroup will decide on the type of activity, the time, and the location. The guru will then pass the information onto L who will put it on the calendar. We’re hoping that this will help L as she tries to accommodate the interest and availability of our club members.

Our Mom’s Night Out Chair, C, is working hard to put together events that interest you as well. It was suggested that these activities be planned as early as possible so that child care arrangements can be made well in advance. We’ll be working on putting MNO events on the calendar. C is currently putting together a great looking MNO for later this month at Painting with a Twist. It should be a memorable activity, so watch for details.

The party committee is hard at work as well. I’ve asked J and K to organize a Fall Kick Off Party for us. This event will be held outside at a park later this month. This will be a great time to reconnect after the summer, make a first appearance if you are new, and remember names & faces.  Next month is a MOMS Club favorite: the Trunk or Treat, so be looking forward to that.

We wanted to welcome our new members. Our newest members are L and C. L and her husband R have three children: G age 8, R age 4, and W age 3. They are in the S neighborhood. C and her husband C live on N. They have two kids: M age 2 and T age 1. We’re excited to see them at upcoming activities – so reach out and welcome them.

I really enjoy our club – it is fun to get to know so many wonderful people in our community. We all join for the same reasons: to make friends with other adults, to make friends for our kids, and to get to know people in our neighborhoods and communities. As with anything, you will get out of MOMS Club what you put in. So join us when you can and let’s have some fun!             -Stephanie
