Upcoming AFC events

    • 24 Apr 2024
    • 7:30 PM - 9:00 PM
    • Ready Set Kids - 284 Broadway, Arlington, MA 02474


    Come meet other working moms in (and around) Arlington. Working moms can be working part time, in the home, outside the home, looking for a job, with children of all ages. We meet at Ready Set Kids now the 3rd Wednesdays of the month. This month we're delaying for school vacation week. Registration not required

    Any time after 7:30 is fine (though people tend to start trickling out around 9). As always, feel free to bring yourself, or yourself plus a snack, beverage, or contribution to the $20 room fee. Feel free to just bring yourself and come and socialize.

    I've had a few moms ask, and young infants (like, pre-crawling) are always welcome, particularly if that's the only way you can come to a meeting. Mobile kids will be bored, as these meetings are a bunch of moms talking about things like after-school programs that end at 5:30, just how many pump parts you really need so you're not washing things constantly, and lamenting our snacks being constantly stolen by our children.
