We are a community of moms supporting moms, by providing opportunities for socialization, friendship, and service to the Tri-City community. The FUN Mothers’ Club is open to parents 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, newsletters (available online, included in $50 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! Members can volunteer 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.
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-City Community, members voted in 1996 to change the name to F.U.N. (Fremont, Union City, Newark) to better reflect our membership.
