~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The Mothers of Malverne (MOMs) began in 1978 when two mothers of preschoolers met and realized that there were others who also felt somewhat isolated and in need of support through the adventures, joys, and difficulties of raising small children.  They put an ad in a local newspaper asking to meet other interested mothers.  That first MOMs meeting of 18 women was the seed for what has blossomed into the Mothers of Malverne of today.  Today the MOMs includes women from many communities in Nassau County.

Our Mission

The MOMs is a club for mothers of young children.  It is designed to function as a cooperative support group and social network for mothers as they face the challenges of child rearing.

Our Events

The MOMs meet on the 15th of every month.  Some months we have informal meetings where we discuss upcoming events and parties and just chat and catch up with each other.  Some months we have a "Moms Night Out" and get together for dinner, coffee, dessert, or another fun activity.

We have children's events throughout the year, including a Halloween party, Breakfast with Santa, and an Easter party and egg hunt.  You can also form playgroups with other MOMs members.

Fun for Moms

Book Club - Book clubs are a great way to enjoy a relaxing evening of conversation.  They provide an opportunity to form new friendships and to enhance existing ones.
 
Email the MOMs if you are interested in joining us.
 

Walking Group - Exercise while chatting with friends.  We usually walk in the evenings.  Email the MOMs if you are interested in joining us.

Game Night - Come in cozy clothes (sweats or pjs) for a super casual night of fun and games.  We try to hold a game night once a month.  Check our calendar for the date of the next game night.
