Hi, my name is Y. and I'm a stay-at-home mom of twin girls. I see that you are a mom who lives in Henderson. I wanted to let you know about a great stay-at-home or part-time working moms group that I participate in if you live in Henderson or Boulder City.
The MOMS Club® of Henderson Boulder City, Nevada is a support group designed for the at-home mother of today! You are interested in the world around you, and want a variety of activities for you and your children. We're at-home mothers too and we know you need a support group that understands your special needs as an at-home mother and we're it! We are the first, largest and fastest growing support group specifically for ALL at-home mothers:
Here are some of the things that make us special:
We meet during the day, when at-home mothers most need support!
We believe being a mother shouldn't isolate you, so mothers may bring their children with them!
We know being an at-home mother today means making a financial sacrifice, so dues to our chapter are only $25 the first year and $20 per year thereafter!
At-home mothers of any age children are welcome!
You don't have to leave the group when your children enter school!
We know you still need support as your children grow!
Our Henderson/Boulder City chapter offers a variety of activities for stay-at-home mothers and their children. On a monthly basis we offer a newsletter, a monthly meeting, field trips, story time and park days. The meetings are informal and can sometimes be chaotic (they have to be when so many children are present!).
MEMBER SUPPORT - Once involved in our club, moms find it very easy to feel a special bond with the other members who share many things in common. We pride ourselves in helping each other be the best moms that we can be and in providing services to fellow members.
MOMS NIGHT OUT - Once a month we gather on a special night for moms only. It's a chance for us to let down our hair and enjoy a night out with each other.
PARK DAYS - A few times a month we gather at a local park. Sometimes we just use the playground, sometimes we bring bikes, trikes, balls or bubbles for the children.
STORYTIMES - We attend weekly or monthly storytimes at local libraries or recreation centers.
CHARITY EVENTS - We try to raise money for various charities that benefit children, throughout the year.
We are always happy to welcome new members to our club.Join us for 2 events before you decide to join. Once you decide to join, dues are $25.00 the first year and $20 every year thereafter, payable to MOMS Club of Henderson/Boulder City. You can join our club if you reside in Henderson, east of Arroyo Grande or if you live in Boulder City.
If you are interested, email us at ____@____.com for more membership information.
If you live in other areas please contact
the International MOMS Club at: ____@____.com for info on a chapter close to you.
I hope to see you soon.
Also we are having an Open House at Acacia Park on Friday, March 28th from 10-1PM.
Acacia Park is off the 215 and Gibson, you can mapquest it, though.
We will have the police dept there for the children to see the officer and get in the car, etc...
We'll have car seat checks (w/a donation to that organization - Family to Family), if you want your child's car seat checked.
We'll also have Child ID kits that you can fill out at home (hair sample, fingerprint), in case your child is ever lost or, God for bid, taken.
Finally, of coarse, we'll provide information about the MOMS Club. We would love to see you there! Please let me know if you would like to attend and I will keep you posted.

We moved to Henderson last year and are looking for a playgroup for our two girls too. They are 2 & 4 years old and we are in the 89044 zip. Write me if you're interested in meeting at a park.

You can try Mommy & Me, either West or East, depending on your part of town. For West (which is the group I was in), visit www.mommyandmewest.org. They have a playgroups coordinator who can connect you. We've been with our playgroup for 2 years, since the kids were 1-1/2. It's been a great resource and support group.
