Our next meeting will be
on Monday, December 16
by Laura Murray
Take a break from the never-ending holiday preparations!
Relax and have fun with friends at the annual MOMs Holiday Party!
Note the date and time difference - we will be getting together on Monday the 16th to avoid the crazy
busy December weekends and we will be starting a little earlier, at 7:30, because...
We will be doing things a little differently this year.
Our holiday party will include a catered dinner, so bring your appetite! We will also have a couple of fun cocktails
to go along with our wine & soda. And of course, there will be yummy desserts!
Reply to the evite if you would like to attend.
New members are always welcome.
forget to bring a white elephant gift!
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.
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.
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.
