Getting to know MOMS: New support group starts for at-home moms

Monday, July 18, 2005

The MOMS Club, an international support group for at-home mothers, is starting a new chapter in the Jackson area this month.

The MOMS Club (Moms Offering Moms Support) is an international not-for-profit organization specifically for at-home mothers everywhere. Local MOMS Club chapters have meetings with interesting speakers and discussions, park play days, play groups for preschool children, baby-sitting co-ops, activity groups like arts and crafts, and a monthly MOMS Night Out. The group also performs service projects to help needy children in the community.

The chapter meets during the day because that's when mothers at home need the support. Mothers can bring their children with them to activities.

Open house will be from 9 to 11 a.m. Thursday, July 28 at Regional Riverside Library in Jackson. For more information about the Jackson chapter, call Dawn Petersen at 243-3661.
