Happy February, MMaH!

This month brings several exciting events that I hope many of you will be able to attend.  Our monthly membership meeting will be on Friday, February 5th at MUMC, in the Social hall.  This is a wonderful opportunity to catch up with other moms and find out what is going on in the club for the month.  Our annual Valentines Day party will be held at MUMC this year on Thursday, February 11th. We will have some fun crafts and games planned so please join us by RSVP on the calendar.   Have an idea to put on the calendar? Want to host a Mocha Moms? Contact Colby Whetstone to get it added!

Towards the end of this month we will be starting our Secret Sister event!  This event is a lot fun, so you don’t want to miss it!  It is a great way to get to know other MMaH members better and help to brighten their day, all while being sneaky so you don’t get caught! Everyone who participates will be assigned a fellow member, whom they will surprise with small gifts and notes of encouragement each week for a 4-week period.  You will be given a list of items your secret sister would enjoy receiving as a gift. At the end of the event, we gather for a MNO to guess who our Secret sister is and receive a final reveal gift. Specific details will be given in the Secret Sister subgroup, so be sure to join if you are interested in participating!  You can join this subgroup by logging to BigTent and going to My Groups>Middletown Moms at Home>Subgroups>Secret Sister to request an invitation or by contacting Oksana or myself to get added.

Two of our subgroups are making a comeback after being in hibernation! Babes with Books will be led by Tracy Brown and Colby Whetstone and Dinner club will be led by Meg Metcalf.  Discussions have already begun in the groups, so please join if you would like to participate!  The first meet‐up for each group will be later this month. My Groups>Middletown Moms at Home>Subgroups>Babes with Books OR Dinner Club.

Thank you to all who donated wipes to the Middletown library this month.  They are so appreciative of our donations to be used for the various children’s activities they host each month.  We will be taking a break from community service for February and will have an exciting opportunity to help out MUMC coming in March. Have a wonderful February!
