Greater St Louis Mothers of Twins Club is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization , P O Box 31382, St. Louis, MO 63131-0382
Are you interested in joining our club? Our club is open to parents of multiples whether expected, delivered, adopted or fostered. Prospective members must apply (see below), pay the annual dues and attend a business/dinner meeting OR club event within 6 months of joining.
We have a great group of people and they can be an invaluable asset for support in raising multiples. No matter what you are dealing with, chances are there is already someone that has gone through the same thing and is willing to offer suggestions and support. Some of the events and services we feature are: community service, scholarship, sisters of support and Stork Club (wonderful for expecting and new moms), our semi-annual consignment sales, Grandmother's Night, Dad's Night, Family Picnic, MOTC Night at a Cardinals game, Fall Hayride, Breakfast with Santa and more! The club also hosts a new member social once a year (it's free!) in addition to the monthly dinner meetings. We also have available Preemie Boxes of gently used preemie clothing for our members to borrow in the event they deliver early. Along with our regularly scheduled gymnastics event guaranteed to wear your kids out, we have a variety of monthly family events; movies, splash pad play dates, park play dates, zoo trips, etc.)
Our monthly dinners are on the third Thursday of every month and are held at various locations throughout the metropolitan St. Louis region. You don't have to cook, you don't have to clean and you don't have to cut anyone's food up. The cost of the dinner is usually anywhere between $16 to $21 depending on the location and the reservation cut off is one week prior to the meeting. We ask members to arrive between 6:30 - 6:45 PM to get signed in and seated. The actual meeting doesn't start until 7:00 PM and usually wraps up by 9:00 PM though you can always leave earlier if needed. Ongoing attendance throughout the year is not required. If you have children under the age of one, we have a special group called Stork Club that meets at 6:00 before the regular meeting. It's a great way to meet other parents with children the same age as yours. Treat yourself to a night out without the kids, you deserve it!
If going to a monthly meeting in the first six months doesn't work with your schedule, you go to one of the many varied family type events scheduled throughout the year. If the new member social falls within that six months, be sure to attend. It's an easy, laid-back way to meet up with other new members and it would count as your mandatory event.
Unfortunately, if you are unable to attend a meeting or club event in the first six months, you will be removed from the membership without a refund.
On top of our monthly meetings and various events, we have our own private website where you can access member-only content including events and forums. Use the forums to ask your questions, make your suggestions and receive advice from those that have been there, done that. If you like to Facebook, we also have a closed group there just for the members.
