Mothers' Connection of the Farmington Valley
Join us Today!
The Mothers' Connection of the Farmington Valley is a local network of mothers with young children. It is a unique volunteer organization that fosters meaningful connections. Members create a sense of community during their child-rearing years by supporting each other with advice and recommendations, by sponsoring mother and child-related activities, and by offering meals for new mothers and childcare through a babysitting Co-Op.
The organization hosts 4 annual events, which include an Easter Party, July 4th Bike/Stroller Parade, a Moms Only Social Evening in the fall and a Holiday Party in December. Our amazing members (potentially you!) plan year-round outings and activities for themselves and other parents with young children. Member-hosted activities include meeting for story time at a library or for playtime at a park, taking a tour at a local firehouse or going to craft-and-play dates at another member's home. An average of 10 weekly playgroups offer scheduled interaction with a smaller group of moms and same-age children. As a Mothers’ Connection member, you can join the babysitting Co-Op. The Co-Op is member-run, where moms “swap” babysitting time with each other and no money is exchanged. Additionally, Mothers’ Connection offers members a chance to get a break from the role of parent with mom's nights out, book groups, or by volunteering to serve on the Board or various committees. Members have full access to our private website, which offers discussion forums, a classified section, activities calendar and community events. The discussion forums are a place where members can seek input on any topic ranging from kids’ issues to health to home repair; the classifieds allow members to post items they would like to sell or buy; the calendar and community events allow members to see what’s going on each week with Mothers’ Connection and within the Valley. Mothers’ Connection annual membership fee is $25. For questions or to learn more about the organization please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
