The MOMS Club was founded by Mary B. James in 1983 in Simi Valley, CA. Mary was a stay-at-home mother who craved interaction outside of her home for herself and her children. She started the first chapter and word spread about this wonderful support group and by 1985 it became a national organization.
Our local chapter was "born" in September 2000 and is growing quickly. Our membership is diverse and so are the activities that our club offers. These activities are geared toward mother and child interaction, and equally important, mother-to-mother interaction. Below are the some of the main benefits our club has to offer:
Monthly Meeting & Activities We have a monthly business meeting where we discuss upcoming events, suggestions and ideas and often have guest speakers focusing on relevant mom topics. Children are always welcome to come and play in the adjoining room full of toys! We also have a monthly calendar of fun, educational activities with children in mind. Check out our Activities page to see a sample of what you can look forward to!
Newsletter Each month all MOMS Club members receive a monthly newsletter that includes the activities calendar, club updates, community events of interest, fun recipes as well as any other news of interest to the MOMS Club community.
Message Board All MOMS Club members have access to our Message Board. This is an area where MOMS Club members can post messages, ask questions and connect with other Moms on a regular basis through the Internet.
Playgroups Playgroups offer opportunities for mothers and children of similar ages to get together on a regular basis at various homes of the playgroup members. This is agreat way for you and your children to makes friends and interact on a smaller scale.
New Mom Benefits Our members provide meals for new mothers to help them with the transition and recovery time after new babies arrive.
Community Service As a part of the MOMS Club International organization, we participate in service projects to help benefit our community.
