What is Moms & More?
We're a completely volunteer-run West Hartford-based parent organization designed to meet the needs of parents and children of West Hartford and the surrounding communities. Our mission is to bring a small town atmosphere into a large city. Moms & More was founded in 2001 by Leslie Gorman, who formed the group as a resource to both working and stay-at-home moms.
We plan several events each month for children of all ages. Each quarter, we offer some regular events, such as Music Class with Fern, My Gym, and Bagels and More (a get-to-know-you event geared toward new members). You’ll find music classes, dance classes, meet up days at the park, swimming, picnics, tours of fire stations, ice skating, museum visits, cookie decorating, and more on our calendar! We work closely with local businesses to secure discounted events for our members, and we use a significant portion of our annual budget to subsidize the events we organize.
Because we believe that playgroups are one of the best ways for you and your children to make new friends, we work hard to place interested members in a group with children of the same age. Our groups are also assembled according to your availability, so that working parents and those with children in other programs might also have a chance to participate. Generally, playgroups meet weekly, rotating among the members' homes.
Moms Night Out
Each quarter, we schedule 1-2 Moms Nights Out to give our members a much needed and well-deserved break. Some of our past events have included manicure night at a local nail salon, a seminar by local professional organizers, recipe exchanges, photography classes, talks on nutrition, and drinks at nearby restaurants and bars. To check out our latest offerings, please see the events section once you become a member.
We strive to be not only a resource to our members, but also to the West Hartford community at large. Our Charity Co-Directors plan events that engage members in service projects for a variety of organizations. Each year, we participate in the town's Adopt A Family holiday gift drive. Other service opportunities have included: making sandwiches for homeless diners at Loaves & Fishes in Hartford; toy and clothing drives for Covenant to Care for Children, and; organizing walks for MADD and March for Babies. Keep an eye out on our private Facebook page for calls to action once you become a member.
Moms and More has a book club that meets regularly. Meetings are held every seven weeks at members' homes in the evening. The host for each meeting chooses the book, allowing members to read a variety of genres. Our meetings are casual, fun and we welcome any mom to socialize and discuss.
Our TLC committee organizes the delivery of three dinners made by members, for members, after the birth of a new baby or during difficult times. It is our hope that each member will commit to signing up for one meal delivery during the year so that our members can count on this support. Meals can be ready-made from the grocery store or gourmet from your own kitchen -- it's up to you!
