MOMS Club® of Buckingham North

June 2015 Minutes for Moms

Message from the President

Summer is just about here! Hooray! I can already smell the ocean air, feel the evening summer breezes and taste the summertime foods! This is such a wonderful area during the summer- there are so many community events happening and family friendly events going on. Every weekend there is always something to do!

We decided to put a lot of park days on the calendar this month to take advantage of the nice weather and being outside with the kids. We scheduled most of them in the morning while it is a little cooler out and to avoid the afternoon heat. We also put some new events on there like strawberry picking and a morning at Howell Living Farm in Lambertville, NJ. It is a farm based on 1910 so the people that work there dress in period outfits/costumes. There is a barn full of animals that the kids can see and picnic tables to enjoy a picnic lunch. We are going to have our members social this month at Bush Park at "A Day in the Park" put on by the township. It is a really fun event for the kids- there are fire trucks to see/sit on, crafts, a tractor pulled train ride, free hot dog lunch, a game of tug of war, and lots more! If anyone has any ideas they would like to see go on the calendar for July and August please let me know!

Past Events

May was a month filled with fun days at the park. It was great to get the kids back outside and running around! We enjoyed a relaxing night out at a new place: Andre's Wine and Cheese, and enjoyed a great members social at the Early Learning Center at Temple Judea. It's been so nice to have the summer weather back again!

End of the Year Dinner

Our End of the Year dinner is almost here! Can you believe another year has gone by?! It's time to celebrate a great year and a wonderful group of ladies. It will be held on Thursday June 11th at 7:00 pm at the Plumsteadville Inn. Please say that you will join us! This will be our big end of the year celebration before the summer starts- it is sure to be a great night. We will be ordering off the menu and the restaurant can do separate checks for us. It will be a fun night of good food, laughs, and a favor to take home! We will also be giving away a couple of door prizes to a few lucky winners! We hope to see you there!

Food Pantry Collection

Thank you to all those that donated food items for the Doylestown Food Pantry. We really appreciate it! We were able to collect quite a few items to donate and help out some local families. Thanks for making it a success!

A Special Thank You!

It's hard to believe that we are at the end of the fiscal year already! Where did the year go?! I just wanted to say a special thank you to all the members that have helped out throughout the year and have volunteered their time for the club. All your hard work is greatly appreciated! I had the privilege of working with a wonderful board of ladies this year. Thank you Cathy Patterson, Leslie McGrady, Joy McDonough and Lisa Menz!! You were instrumental in keeping the club running smoothly! Also thank you to Jeannine Walsh for being the chair of the Sunshine committee, Denise Martin for sending out all of the "other" cards (welcome, new baby, sympathy, etc.), Heather Krotzer and Lisa Menz for sending out the birthday cards to the members and Ann Marie Manelski for running our Facebook page.
