West Chester Mothers of Twins and More Club History
The West Chester Mothers of Twins and More Club was officially formed and nationally affiliated in 1988 and is currently entering its 20th year. We joined the National Organization of Mothers of Twins Clubs, Inc. (NOMOTC) in July 1988 with 16 members. Our first year, we carried a bank balance of $469.97. Dues generated $650 that year with $5 for each member going to the NOMOTC. Things certainly have changed in our nineteen year history. Currently, we have 175 members and dues have generated $4,300 with $9 going to National for each member. Since 1999, when the Club’s numbers soared to over 100 members, we have averaged around 35-40 new members every year.
The Club’s first meeting place was at the Union Township Library on Cox Road. Club members met on the third Tuesday of each month; year-round except for July and December. In August of 1989, the location was changed to St. Anne Episcopal Church on Tylersville Road and the meetings were moved to the first Wednesday of each month. In 1993, our membership increased by over 50% and when our numbers jumped to 70 in 1994 the meetings were relocated to the Faith Community United Methodist Church on Cox Road and moved to the first Tuesday of the month.
Our steady growth has necessitated yet another move to accommodate our increasing numbers and facility needs. In the spring of 2002 our current meeting location was chosen and beginning in the fall of the same year we began meeting at the West Chester Church of the Nazarene on Tylersville Road.
In 1997, the Club’s name was formally changed to the West Chester Mothers of Twins and More Club to better reflect the changing demographics of the Club; recognizing the increase in the number of higher order multiples, as well as, the fact that many Moms have other children in addition to their multiples. We have grown by leaps and bounds and our numbers continue to "multiply".
Our annual dues are $25.00 for the year beginning Aug. 1 and ending July 31.
