The activities and events described below summarize what our club is doing this summer; however, for dates and locations please enquire about club membership.
Weekly Play Groups
The East Parker MOMS Club Chapter will meet every Wednesday and Friday mornings from 9:30 am – 11:30 am for playgroups through July. In August, we will be revising the current play group schedule and dividing our members into age-specific play groups for the 2012-2013 school year. These sessions are either held at the host’s home or at a local park, swimming pool or other public location. The host is asked to provide a light snack and drink for the mothers and children and is responsible for sending out an email invitation to confirm the group’s location to the other group members.
During the summer months, we will meet at local parks to have a short morning walk with our children followed by fun playtime for the kids. This will be held each week on Thursday morning from 9:30 – 11:30 am. Walking group members are responsible for bringing food and drinks for themselves and their children. Please note, we observe ‘the 15 minute rule’ which means the group will wait 15 minutes from the time of arrival until they begin the walk, so please be prompt!
Mom’s Night Out!
We plan for at least one (but sometimes more) evening outing for just the moms each month. Some potential ideas for summer MNO’s include: dinner and drinks, listening to live music, going to the movies, bowling, nature walks / hikes, painting or pottery lessons and more! Exact dates and locations for MNO’s will be confirmed each month.
Outings for the Entire Family
- Parker Old Town Wine Walks
- Mom and Dad’s Night Out

Some of the weekday field trips we are planning for this summer include:
Group visit to the new Centennial Center Park (with splash pad for kids!). See website for more details: http://www.centennialcolorado.com/index.aspx?NID=844.
Trip to the Denver Zoo – joint outing with our friends at the MOMS Club of Parker West!
Picnic / Lunch outing to Belleview Park in Englewood. This park has a miniature train, a petting zoo, a large playground, picnic grounds and more! See website: http://www.englewoodgov.org/Index.aspx?page=964
These are part business, part social and are open to ALL club members! Meetings are typically held during the 3rd week of each month (exact dates and times TBC) to allow for time to plan for the following month’s activities.
NEW!!! Summer Book Club
Our summer book club will be starting in July with The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin. We will meet to discuss this book sometime in Mid-August along with some great follow up activities!
Summer Movie Express
Starting in Mid-June, the Meadows Stadium 12 in Lone Tree near the Park Meadows Mall will offer children’s movies for $1.00 per person.
