Board Message – July 2018

Hi Mamas,

Happy mid Summer 2018! Whhhhaaaat?!!   
Speaking of time passing, last month at our Annual Spring Banquet, we celebrated the end of our MSMAC year which runs June-May.   This year, in a lovely private upstairs suite at The Parrot in downtown Gettysburg, we honored the board members and event coordinators who have served from June 2016- May 2018 since we did not have a banquet last year.   
THANK YOU to all the ladies who have contributed their time, energy, and ideas to help make our group a vibrant community of moms and children who not only love to have fun with one another, but care about one another too! 
THANK YOU to the ladies who serve on the board, helping keep us organized, informed, and able to continue to support moms and families in Adams County through such programs as Ruth’s Harvest, Kiwanis Playground, The Gleaning Project, United Way, and South Central Community Action Programs (SCCAP).

THANK YOU to those who volunteer to host monthly play dates for kids, family outings, and events for Moms only, and thank you to those who volunteer to contribute behind the scenes, maintaining our website, or delivering meals to postpartum moms. 

THANK YOU for sharing your homes and your friendship.

THANK YOU  to all who attend our events, especially if you are new and just getting to know the moms in our group. We know that can be intimidating, but we’ve all been there. We are so glad that you are here!
