About FUNMC

The FUN Mothers’ Club is open to parents and their families with young children in the Fremont, Union City, & Newark, California community.

Our members include parents from all ages, backgrounds and nationalities in all types of situations: at-home, work-outside-the-home, single, adoptive and expectant moms, all of pre-kindergarten aged children. The mothers’ club provides the opportunity to gain support, share knowledge, experience friendships and promote a sense of community for ourselves, our children and our families.

The FUN Mothers’ Club is a volunteer run, not-for-profit community. We rely on the volunteer efforts of members for all club activities. Annual membership dues pay for expenses such as social activities, monthly newsletters (available online, included in $39 per year dues), speakers and administrative costs.

Our club relies on all members to help out where ever they can and make our club great! Many hands make light work and make everything more fun! We do have a volunteer requirement for all members. Members can meet their requirement by being as involved as a board member in a regular, ongoing position, or do as little as delivering a meal, making signs or phone calls or baking a cake or hosting a social. Members who cannot fulfill this requirement will pay an additional $10 fee either at the time of paying dues at sign up, or later in the year if they do not plan on meeting the requirement.

A Brief History

The FUN Mothers’ Club was formed in the fall of 1991 when a small group of mothers felt a strong need to share the experience of raising children. After attending a course on how to start a mothers’ club taught by Katie Hoepke, they formed the Newark Mothers’ Club.

As membership grew to include moms from the wider Tri-Cities Community, members voted in 1996 to change the name to F.U.N. (Fremont, Union City, Newark) to better reflect our membership.

Over the years we have grown from the founding members to a community of over 350.
