MOMS Club® of Buckingham North

October 2016 Minutes for Moms

Message from the President

Here we find ourselves in the thick of Autumn, friends! I hope you are loving this great season so far. We've already been enjoying some lovely outings with our club to celebrate the season and I'm looking forward to spending more time with you and your little ones this month.

Have you gone apple picking yet? Did your kids try to gobble down an apple in the orchard before you paid for your haul? Have you been on the lookout for changing leaves as you drive around our beautiful county? Do you have campfires in your backyard at night? Is anyone going on any fun trips this fall? Are you looking forward to feeding your kids apple and pumpkin pie because they are basically healthy (I'm raising my hand high for this one)? Are you cheering for your kids at their games every weekend? I want to hear all about it the next time I see you!

Enjoy your October and savor all of these delicious moments with your kids!
