Valley's new Moms networking group to hold first meeting Tuesday, Sept. 17

“Moms,” a women’s group new to the Snoqualmie Valley and aimed at welcoming, informing and inspiring mothers, will host its first meeting, 9:30 a.m. Tuesday, Sept. 17, at Snoqualmie Valley Alliance Church, 36017 S.E. Fish Hatchery Rd., Fall City.

Moms welcomes all mothers, regardless of religious affiliation and the age of their children, for a morning of camraderie and learning about topics related to motherhood in the Snoqualmie Valley, free of charge.

Moms was created by a group of women with an interest in creating space for moms to network, feel connected to their communities, and learn something while celebrating being mothers. No matter where a mom is on her journey, all moms need support of other mothers.

Encompass Northwest started the partnership to create Moms. Encompass will be providing the bulk of the educational content during each meeting; topics will change monthly.

The Snoqualmie Valley Chamber of Commerce has also teamed up with Moms. Chamber businesses will be highlighted at meetings, allowing mothers to get to know local business owners and managers. The Sept. 17 meeting will include a presentation by Nate Perea, chief executive officer of the Snoqualmie Valley Chamber of Commerce, and explore the topic of “Communicating in a Chaotic World,” presented by Kerry Beymer, the parenting support and education manager at Encompass.

“I am so excited to be a part of this group... It is something that we have wanted to happen for several years now at Encompass and when we were approached by this group of women and they shared their ideas with us, we leaped at the chance to form a partnership and Moms was created,” said Beymer.

Subsequent meetings will be held on the third Tuesday of each month. For a list of upcoming topics, visit the Moms website, On-site childcare is available for $5; pre-registration is required for childcare. Sign up at
