Aims to create community around sports and recreation activities. Meets weekly for a 2-mile walk, weather permitting. The scope of the group will grow from the interests pursued by current and new members. We’ll provide opportunities to post sports and recreation activities for moms, families, and kids. Join us for kayaking or canoeing on the Charles, biking along the DCR trails, rock climbing at indoor gyms, ice skating or sledding at Larz Anderson park, or roller blading along Memorial Drive.
Fall and Winter Socials, Holiday Party, Wine and Cheese Tasting and Game Night. Also, various other get-togethers throughout the year, e.g., gallery visits, progressive dinner party.
In the past, The Mothers' Forum has raised various donations to help families for The Second Step homeless shelter in Newton, the Newton Free Library, and Room to Grow, a nonprofit who provides baby essentials for low-income families. We hope our donations can go to help other parents and their children who are in need. We also host a silent auction some years. Local businesses donate goods and services to help the NMF raise money for local charitable organizations.
For children and parents:
Activities include Holiday Party, Valentine's Day Party, and St. Patrick's Day Party, all with snacks, crafts, and entertainment.
For example, summer meetups at the Concert & Movie series at the Hyde Community Center and private showings of kids movies at the West Newton Cinema.
