HEIGHTS — The Moms Offering Moms Support Club of Dearborn, a support group for stay-at-home and part-time working mothers in Dearborn and Dearborn Heights, will host a Halloween-themed open house from 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Thursday at Caroline Kennedy Library, 24590 George Ave.

The event is an opportunity not only to celebrate the fun of the Halloween season, but also for mothers in the community to learn about the MOMS Club and its activities. Children of all ages are welcome and are encouraged to attend in costume to enjoy games, crafts and prizes.

The club has a regular schedule of events including weekly meet-ups at local kid-centric locations, park dates and play groups, monthly general meetings on the second Tuesday of each month, a monthly Mom’s Night Out, and occasional service projects within the community.

The club also has a helping hands committee for mothers who need assistance with meals when a new baby arrives or a family emergency occurs. Members also plan to add an optional baby-sitting co-op and occasional events for the entire family.

The club is a branch of an international support group for at-home mothers founded in California in 1983. There are more than 1,500 chapters in the United States.

“The MOMS Club has been such a wonderful way to interact with other area moms,” Membership Vice President Robyn Mazza said. “When my family moved back to Dearborn after many years away, I was looking to meet other moms with children my son’s age, and what I found were really great friends for both of us.”

The club allows children at all of its events, and even though it was originally founded as a resource for mothers, it also provides opportunities for children of all ages to socialize.
