MOPS Updates and Events

Upcoming Events…Our regrets as MOPS & POPS Game Night has been Canceled.

Thursday Park Meeting
MOPS is meeting at Trailside Park this coming Thursday, January 28th from 9:30-11:30. Same time as our MOPS meetings. We don’t have any host food tables at our Park dates, so be sure to bring your own drinks and snacks.

Book Club
There is still some deliberation on the next book for book club. Keep your eyes and ears open for the next title and meeting times. All are welcome. Feel free to ask a mom with experience with this group about it, but be prepared to get an earful. We have only heard great things about this group!

Next Meeting
Our next meeting is on Marriage! What a wonderful topic. The Amethyst table is in charge of hosting our next meeting on February 4th. If you have any questions please contact table leader Heather Stephenson. Looking forward to seeing you on February 4th!
