MOMS Club® of Buckingham North

January 2015 Minutes for Moms

Message from the President

It's the New Year! 2015! How did this past year go by so fast?! It's time to make those New Year's resolutions that we all promise ourselves that we will strive to keep. Time to reflect on the past year, the adventure that we have had and the memories that were made. Time to dream about the upcoming year and all that it has in store for us. I hope everyone has a happy, healthy, prosperous New Year!

This winter we will try to think of as many ideas as we can to keep the kids happy and busy. I always love input though! So please e-mail me ( if you have any ideas for the calendar in the upcoming months. Also, let me know if you would like to see more events go on the calendar for a certain age group or certain days/times. There aren't as many community events during the winter so I will try to put my creative thinking cap on and come up with ideas....

Wishing everyone a very happy New Year!!

Mark your calendars for the events we have coming up this month. Central Bucks school district is off on the 19th (for Martin Luther King Day) so we planned an outing for all of the kids to enjoy.

Past Events

December was a quieter month for the Moms Club with all of the hustle and bustle of the season. Some events included going to the Fonthill Castle and a morning at the Central Bucks Gymnastics to enjoy their open gym day. The Members Social was held at the Bucks County Children's Museum where the kids enjoyed running around and discovering all that the different rooms had to offer. Our big event this month was our holiday party held at the Bucks Club. It was a fantastic relaxed evening with a great holiday atmosphere. It was a lot of fun to be able to catch up with everyone!

December Charity Event

Thank you to all those that participated in the December charity event to benefit the CHC (Child, Home and Community). We were able to collect quite a few donations and they were very appreciative. Thank you for helping to make it a success!

We will be doing a trial run of in the next month or two. We would like to try it out for a couple of months to see if members like it. This would replace Evites for the months that we use I will send out an email (or two!) to notify everyone when we convert over to meetup. Thanks!
