Our chapter currently has approximately 25 members, and almost 75 participants including children. We’ve come from all over the country to call Phoenix our home. Below are some highlights of our chapter:
Calendar of Activities—Our monthly calendar is always full of activities you can do with your child or children. You can choose to go to as many or as few as you like. Some of the activities include trips to the Phoenix Zoo, McCormick-Stillman Railroad Park, Tot Town, Chuck E. Cheese, local parks, touring farms or restaurants, and visiting museums. Our Activities Coordinator works with our members to come up with plenty of creative activities for us to do together. Our members take turns setting up events (hosting).
Mom’s Night Out (MNO)—This monthly event is very popular and much anticipated by many of our members. We often meet at a restaurant for
the evening, enjoying food and conversation without our children. Other activities have included comedy clubs, pottery painting, and movies.
Newsletter—We publish a monthly newsletter which contains articles of interest to moms, stories from our members, birthdays, recipes, birth announcements, and highlights of recent events.
Service Projects—Service projects may be very simple, like collecting toys for a battered women’s shelter or more involved like raising money by publishing and selling cookbooks. We recently collected materials for backpacks for children entering the foster care system. We also help moms in need in the club and in the community.
Monthly Club Meetings—We have a club meeting every month, which all members are invited to. This is a time for members to get to know other members, help shape the group, plan future events, and discuss items of concern.
Annual Dues—Membership dues for MOMS Club of Phoenix-NE are $25 annually; however, we realize that staying home with our children often means making financial sacrifices and dues can either be reduced or waived if they would represent a significant financial hardship. No mother is turned away due to inability to pay dues.
