MOMS Club® of Buckingham North

January 2016 Minutes for Moms

Message from the President

It's amazing to me to think that it's 2016! They always say the years go by faster the older you get....I'm starting to believe them. I honestly feel as though I was just writing this newsletter for January 2015, nevertheless 2016. I hope everyone is enjoying the holiday season this year with family and friends and is finding time to relax a bit in between the hustle and bustle. Now it's time to take a post-holiday deep breath and sip your coffee while the children play with all their new toys and activities (and hope it occupies them for most of the day!). Then it's time to buckle up for the winter months ahead and cross our fingers that it's not a tough winter with a lot of snow, ice and record breaking cold temperatures...or at least that's my personal wish because I am a warm weather, flip-flop loving girl at heart! So cheers to a new year and may it be filled with health and happiness for everyone!

January Birthdays- Happy Birthday!!

Past Events

December was a fun month! Our big event for this month was our Holiday Party- it was a great night out! We had our annual event at the Bucks Club- it was a night of good food, laughs and even some door prizes. It was so nice to see everyone there!! We also had our monthly members social, a library playdate, and a day at Rebounderz.

We are looking for hosts for our February, March and April Members Social.

You would provide a few snacks and drinks and everyone attending the event would bring a peanut free snack to share as well.

Did You Know...

For something new and different, here are some (very!) random facts you may not know...

Elephants are the only mammals that can't jump.

A duck's quack doesn't echo, and no one knows why.

The name Jeep came from the abbreviation used in the army for the "General Purpose" vehicle, G.P.

Despite its "Sunshine State" nickname, Florida is not the sunniest U.S. state- Arizona is, closely followed by Nevada.

The "french" in french fries, actually describes the way the spuds are sliced, not their country of origin.

The "x" in "X-ray' indicates an unknown quantity, much like it does in mathematics.

You can tell from the statue of a mounted horseman how the rider died. If all four of the horse's feet are on the ground, he died of natural causes. One foot raised means he died from wounds suffered in battle. Two legs raised means he died in action.
