You know what moms need? OTHER MOMS. And do you know how difficult it is fond mom friends? Well, it’s pretty darn hard so when I heard about MomtoMomofMaine.org and their Mamapalooza I got so excited I actually SQUEED! out loud.
Want to know what they are all about? Check this out from their site:
“Mom to Mom of Maine is a nonprofit organization devoted to helping mothers maintain their individuality, creativity, and emotional health. Any mother in Southern Maine is eligible to join us in sharing good times, resources, and support. We are volunteer-run organization and many members donate their time and talents to offer a variety of activities. These volunteers make the organization run! We have been a circle of support for moms in Southern Maine for over 15 years.”
Mamapalooza 2017 is on Saturday, April 8 from 3-10pm at the Mariner’s Church in Portland (368 Fore St.).
This event is for M2M members ($5/ea) and their invited guests ($10/ea) – but it’s not too late to join and RSVP! You can sign up by visiting the site here.
The lovely ladies who run this marvelous project sent me some great information what you can expect at the Mamapalooza this year:
