I'm Emily, one of your community managers for Aurora/Newmarket - working alongside Julie! I have two beautiful children of my own, Mason who is 31months and Madison who is 7 months [I can't believe it!]. We live in Aurora, and LOVE organizing and getting together with friends. We also have a few critters in our house.... a dog [Moose] and a cat [Matissa] and my husband recently surprised me with a 20gal. fish tank, which started with 3 fish...and now we're at 12 fish...2 sharks [mini] and 2 frogs... he swore he wouldn't go overboard.....ha. We have a dinosaur fanatic in our house , and everything he does is somehow dinosaur related... he wears dinosaurs every day on at least one article of clothing [but yes...I can actually clothe him from head to toe in dinosaur....]
I can't wait to get to know our new members, and get out in the community !! Get ready for some GREAT events ladies!! You're in for a fantastic ride!!

Momstown is a social networking site for all kinds of moms, especially those with kids 0-5 or are expecting. As a member, you gain access to a 24-hour interactive message board, as well as an online calendar that's filled with heaps of events every month (30+ of them!) for moms and their children. Our goal is to provide a framework for neighbourhood moms to connect for support or just plain fun!
And no, we don't just do everything online. We take advantage of the internet to get off the internet. We love face-to-face interaction! To give you an idea of what we offer, here's a list (but certainly not limited to):
- arts & crafts
- moms' nights out (woo hoo!)
- story time
- discussion nights
- field trips
- and much, much more!
Plans are underway for our grand opening launch party in March. Yes, it's this month - oh, we are soooo excited! We are calling all moms in the Newmarket and Aurora area, so we can have lots of fun together! The event will be open to the public.
In the meantime, come see what it's all about at www.momstown.ca. And don't forget to bookmark us (or add to your Favourites) while you're at it - both our main website and this blog.
We look forward to having you join us. Come live, laugh, learn, and relax with us. And help us spread the word.
Welcome to momstown!
