Things are changing here at MOMS Club® of Grand Blanc, and that means new and exciting changes for our members as well! We have started two new clubs, Craft club and Fitness Club. In July, our board changed over to officers.
Katie R. (me) – President Jamie O. – Membership Vice President Kim Y. – Secretary Wanda F. – Treasurer
Last month at our July general meeting, we voted on our service projects for the year. Right now we are working on our police departments appreciation and making newborn hats for one of the the local hospitals!
We have also merged with Grand Blanc East and changed our name to Grand Blanc from Grand Blanc West. We now cover Grand Blanc, Swartz Creek, Holly/Genesee County only, Burton, Flint, Mt. Morris, Davison, Goodrich and Townships of Mundy/Clayton/Gaines/Flint. If you live in these areas, we would love to have you join us at an event and see if you would like to become a member. We are here to support the full and part time stay at home mom! It is a journey, one that we can all struggle with, that can feel alienating at times. That is what we are here for, to help you through your hard times, and to help you celebrate the times things finally went your way. I know with Bubbaduke, I certainly have had plenty of rough times and wouldn’t know what I would do without my club.
Our August general meeting is Tuesday, the 23rd at 10 am. Please email us if you would like to join us there. Don’t worry if you can’t make that one, email us anyways and we will talk to you about other events we are having, give you more information about MOMS Club®, and answer any questions that you have.
Hope to hear from you soon!
We’ve started the summer off with a bang here at MOMS Club® of Grand Blanc! Lots to look forward to over the coming weeks. Aside from our typical playdates, park days and other fun events – this month we will be (trying to!) beat the heat at the Splash Pad over at Bicentennial Park! Kazoos is another fun day the kids are sure to enjoy and get some of that energy out! Bounce! of Hartland will be another fun day for the littles of the group. Looking forward to some fun and great company this summer with MOMS Club® of Grand Blanc!
The last time I posted, it was October. My plan was to post every month to let you guys know what is going on with our club. Then the holidays started hitting and I got behind. It’s kind of crazy to think of how fast everything flies by in our world. Just going with the holidays, it all seems to run together for a while and you get lost in the spirit of giving and holiday joy. Then to think about with our children. My son is going to be 2 in just 3 months. It feels like he was just learning to walk maybe a month ago. It’s been 13 months since then. Dealing with different issues that we’ve had of the typical independent toddler.
Thankfully, I have had my friend in MOMS Club® here to help me out. Everyone is open to hear about issues that another may be having and giving advice when the mother wants (KEY THERE: WANTS). I would be honestly lost without this group. I have been able to discuss struggles and well as achievements with them. I have done this during our play groups, on our Facebook page, or even privately to a select few via text messages or a phone call.
This group is for any parent. New moms, moms to be, or moms of older children that just want some place to go for friendship, to get out of the house, to help their children socialize. It’s even for stay at home dads as well. This is a club about support. Supporting one another, supporting our children, supporting our families with an even larger family. Support is needed at all times, without it, I feel like the weight that is constantly on our shoulders as parents would be too much.
If this sounds like a place you want, maybe even need, to be a part of, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org we look forward to hear from you and supporting you.
We have a lot of events going on in November. We have our normal coffee dates, park days, and story time, of course. On top of those we have a few different kid’s day out activities such as Sloan Museum, and Kazoos. We are going out for dinner for our mom’s night out which is always fun! With Bubbaduk, I think we are looking forward to Kazoos the most. Lots of different things to do for the littles and the prices are decent for all that you get to do. We also have an open house and community service project this month. We are making cards for kids in the hospital on November 13th from 3-5 pm at the Police Station meeting room in Grand Blanc Township. We would love to meet you and have you enjoy these activities with us! Please email us so that we can arrange times with you to meet and have you join.
We look forward to hearing from you!

We had so many great events in October. The pumpkin patch family outing was a great time with a good turnout. Bubbaduke really enjoyed the hay ride and the animals. Our story time was amazing with a new member and her child as well as other members that have joined our club a while ago. After coffee and a muffin and story time, we decided to take a walk around the mall which was so much fun! Our trip to the Children’s Museum was a lot of fun and the kids seemed to really enjoy the different things to do. I think Bubbadukes favorite was playing with M in the helicopter and fire truck. Coffee dates are always fun, even if I don’t drink coffee. It is one of my favorite activities that we do. I mean, what more can you ask for then to sit with a few good friends, in your pajamas, and have adult conversations while the kids play together and you don’t have to watch their constant move because you are already at a place that is childproof?
Stay tuned to hear about what is coming up in November. So many fun things! Please email us if you would like more information or would like the meet us! email@example.com

The summer has ended and we are moving into fall. The color of the leaves changing, carving pumpkins and apple cider has begun! August has been full of end of the season activities, September transitioning into the start of the school year and supporting our moms (and families) as they go back, and October where we finally start enjoying our season of fall.
The month of August had a lot of activities for our group. We had our open house, fun at the park, our coffee/play dates, craft night where we made jewelry holders, a fire station tour that the kids loved, and a cookout with our families.
In September, we still have a few activities left. One more park day, a coffee date, mom’s afternoon out and our family activity is left to enjoy. While my significant other will probably be working, I will still be enjoying the family activity with other families that are close to my heart. Bubbaduke and I will still be getting out and enjoying the company of our friends (that are close enough to be our family).
I know that I am looking forward to our October events which include going to a pumpkin patch! In the past, many of our families have loved going to the pumpkin patch, and I’m excited to be joining them this year. We also will be going to the Children’s Museum as one of our kids day out activities. Bubbaduke loves the museum and we are looking forward to playing with our friends there next month!
As always if you would like to join us for activities and see if this is a group you would like to join please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
