We require that all members complete two volunteer hours each year for the club. Volunteering is a fun way to get to know other members and there are many ways to volunteer:

  • Serve on the Board of Directors
  • Write an article for the newsletter
  • Help out at an event (setup or cleanup, for example)
  • Bake for an event (includes bringing store-bought treats or snacks)

We know that the life of a mom is a busy one. If you absolutely cannot volunteer your time the club accepts an annual fee of $30 in lieu of volunteering.  Volunteer credit, like membership, runs yearly, beginning with the date you join or renew.
