For nearly 20 years, Findlay Mothers and More has brought local moms together, and now, the group has a new name and a new partnership. As of January, Findlay Mothers and More is a chapter of the ore than 35-year-old international MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers), which includes mothers with children ages birth through kindergarten, and MOMSnext which includes mothers with school-aged children.
Members participate in activities such as playgroups, book clubs, and service projects. According to the MOPS website and local member Emily McBeath, “We are a group of local mothers who believe we are all here, in this time and place in history, as the tribe of women who are raising the world… We don’t all have to agree with one another, but everyone is in, and we all need each other. At MOPS, every mom is welcomed, accepted, and inspired to reach her potential and recognize her influence within her family and her world. MOPS believes that better moms really do make a better world.”
April 18 to May 8, Findlay MOPS will be conducting a diaper drive to benefit Hancock County Help Me Grow, with drop-off boxes throughout town, including one at the Children’s Museum of Findlay in the Findlay Village Mall.
Findlay MOPS meets at First Presbyterian Church, 2330 S. Main St., Findlay, on the fourth Tuesday of each month, from 9:15-11:15am. Childcare is provided. Membership dues are $45 per year.
