Membership in the Mothers’ Club provides Hampstead moms with so many things – an occasional night away from the kids, companionship with other moms to brainstorm problems and ideas, finding same-age friends for your kids before they get to school, tidbits about the best kid-friendly businesses in town, the ins and outs of all the schools in the area, opportunities to network and talk about your professional interests … We could go on and on, but why not come to our next meeting and see for yourself? We’d love to have you join us! Email HampsteadMothersClub@hotmail.com to find out about our next meeting.
What do I have to do to join the Mothers’ Club?
The Mother’s Club is for moms residing in Hampstead/East Hampstead with at least one child between the ages of newborn – 14 (8th grade). Or, moms who live out of town can still join if they have a child in the Hampstead Central or Middle School. New members can join any time!!
Once you join, there are just a few obligations that you make to enjoy all the benefits of the club:
▪ Attend our Monthly Meeting – We typically meet the first Tuesday of the month at 7:30pm for about an hour. We organize upcoming functions, vote on disbursements, etc. After the official business, we just hang out and socialize for a while! (There are always good munchies and drinks!)
▪ Attend & facilitate our fundraising activities for the year.
▪ Join at least one committee (these groups help organize our fundraising and social events).
▪ Host or co-host (provide snacks for) one meeting per year.
How does the club really help our community?
The Mothers’ Club holds several fundraisers throughout the year. These events are a lot of fun for the community AND the proceeds benefit our schools and many local programs. We’ve been able to contribute to: Hampstead’s Central & Middle Schools, scholarships for Pinkerton Academy, children’s furniture for the library, museum passes, Hampstead Softball & Basketball, St. Anne’s Food Pantry, Civic Club Fishing Derby, the new town Basketball court, the Depot Road Playground, and many others.
What kind of adult social events does the club have?
The club tries to balance the needs of stay-at-home and working moms, moms with kids of all ages, and moms with varying interests and hobbies… To that end, we have many different ladies-only social events and even a few couples’ events.
★ Progressive Dinner (couples start at one house for appetizers, then move to a new house/host for each course in the meal)
★ Ladies Weekends Away to Long Island Wine Country, Cape Cod and North Conway (to name a few)
★ Ladies’ Night Out at “You’re Fired!”
★ Drink/Appetizer nights
★ Game Nights
Are there any special activities for children of Club members?
Children in the club have an opportunity to meet other kids their age and participate in a wide range of activities! A few examples are:
★ Apple Picking and Hayride Trip
★ Holiday parties
★ Beach Trips and Water Playdates during the summer
★ Group outings to play places such as Party Playland and Cowabunga’s
★ Mother/Daughter Trips to the American Girl Store
★ Multi-family Camping Trips
