To all of our new and returning members:
To say that I am excited about this upcoming year with PVMOM would be an understatement!
I have spent the entire summer brainstorming, researching, and daydreaming about all the possibilities...about all the things this "mom club" can become. If you are reading this, it is because you renewed your membership and for that THANK YOU. Your membership allows us to facilitate so many of the wonderful things we have planned!
I heard about PVMOM while I was pregnant but didn't join and attend my first meeting until the twins were 8 weeks old. My real engagement with the group wasn't until we returned from our temporary move to San Francisco right before their first birthday. I can't recall that moment I got hooked but I can recall my first playdate with a few members. There was an instant connection and an instant passion to want to be friends. It was like because we had twins we had known each other our whole lives. Soon after I took a role on the board as Meeting Planner because I felt it would give me the chance to really make more mom friends and find a reason for us all to get together. Little did I know what was really in store :-)
Throughout the past year I have seen the kinds of relationships this group fosters, the support that is offered and the fun you all like to have. I spent a lot of time talking to new members, old members and prospective members and it gave me a lot of insight to what these moms (and families needed). Yes, this is simply a mom's club, but it is also a place for us all to call home. Where we have one another's backs, cheer each other on milestone-after-milestone and laugh out loud (or cry) with others when we have some of our hardest days. There is nothing like a twin or triplet mom. We are special and have a passion that seems so rare.
As we embark on this upcoming year I am on cloud nine, not only because of the wonderful board that has come together but all the fun, adventurous and exciting things they have planned. I can say without a doubt this group of women is ahhhmazing. I am blown away at the time they have all put into this organization (it's a volunteer role y'all) and the term just started! Our goal is to offer you various family outings, mom's night outs, play dates, and educational meetings with some social mixed in. We have partnered with organizations all over the globe to obtain product and service donations for our annual holiday auction and have some fun contests + giveaways in store. You will also find us venturing out into the community putting on our philanthropic hats and we sure hope you will join us. These are just a few of the things going on...#thisyearisgoingtorock...and I sure hope you will be right there with us!
This monthly newsletter will become a staple in your inbox so make sure to watch for it. The content will range from educational to freebies with the intention of offering ways to make your lives easier!
My door is always open. Find me at a meeting, shoot me a text or send an email. My sole purpose on this board it to make sure you, our members, are supported. We welcome all ideas and feedback. I look forward to getting to know you all and your kiddos!
Cheers to our year ahead!
