COARSEGOLD – Mothers of PreSchoolers (MOPS) Coarsegold invite local moms to a free movie night, where they’ll screen an appropriately-titled new release, “Moms’ Night Out.” The fun takes place on Friday, Sept. 19, at 6 p.m. .
This MOPS event, held at the Yosemite Lakes Community Church, is open to pregnant women and mothers of children from infant-to-kindergarten-age. The movie night includes other valuable freebies, too: popcorn,rootbeer floats, and ven complimentary childcare is provided, so that anyone who wants to can join in.
The PG-rated “Moms Night Out” film is 1 hour and 38 minutes in length. Here’s the synopsis: “All Allyson and her friends want is a peaceful, grown-up evening of dinner and conversation… a long-needed moms’ night out. In order to enjoy high heels, adult conversation and food not served in a paper bag, they need their husbands to watch the kids for three hours. What could go wrong? This film is an endearing true-to-life family comedy that celebrates the beautiful mess called parenting.”
One MOPS organizer said of the film, “I have never laughed so hard at a movie.” Copies of Moms’ Night Out will be available to purchase, while supplies last, with proceeds going to support MOPS Coarsegold.
“MOPS is a great opportunity to meet and bond with other moms who are also going through this very challenging and often isolating stage of life,” says Melissa Courtney, referring to the care of preschool age children. “At MOPS, moms can share, encourage one another, and get a short break from mom duty. Our meetings include breakfast and speaker presentations, and conversations that facilitate the growth of lasting relationships with other moms.”
MOPS Coarsegold meetings are once a month from September to May, on the third Wednesday of the month from 9 – 11:30 a.m.
