As part of The Mommies Network, CrystalCoastMommies is a free community for moms in Carteret, Onslow, Jones and Craven Counties, North Carolina. We realize that all moms need local support -- and who can't use another friend? CrystalCoastMommies offers a simple way to connect with local moms for friendship, support and fun. Each month, we offer many face-to-face events for our members, their children and their families. Our members also have access to our private discussion forums to share information on everything from where to get the best haircut to tips on transitioning to a "big kid" bed.
CrystalCoastMommies is moving to a new community platform for The Mommies Network. Moms in the Crystal Coast area, whether they have previously been members of CrystalCoastMommies or not, are invited to join. If you are a current member, please check your inbox for a personal invitation later this week. If you are not a current member, please visit http://community.themommiesnetwork.org to register and test out our new community!
Operation Gratitude is an organization that sends letters and care packages to our active duty and veteran service members. Since they started in 2003, they have sent over 1.5 million care packages.
This September and October, we are asking our chapters to get together and write letters for these care packages. Everyone can help - even the kids! Plan a get together or two, bring some paper, and have fun. Turn it into a pot luck, coffee date, or monring at the park. The possibilities are endless.
