The MOMS Club of Cleveland, along with the Cleveland Family YMCA, will host the Second Annual Children’s Fair on Feb. 7.

The fair will be open to the public from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

“This year’s Children’s Fair will include the best Preschools, Parent’s Day Out, and private schools in Cleveland. Along with agencies and businesses that provide services for children ages 3 and up,” explains Becca Brnik, the MOMS Club vice president,

“We are offering a free service to the community to come and see over 50 vendors in one area. If you are looking for a preschool or a business to have your next child’s next birthday party at or an agency to help with the behavior of your child, they will be there.”

Brnik said, “We are trying to get information to parents quickly. Parents are busy. We set the time over lunch so even working parents could try to drop in. Cleveland is a wonderful place to raise children and there are so many free resources to help parents and wonderful small business that pertain just to children.

“This fair will give the agencies or businesses an outlet to publicize their activities while letting families know what is available in our town,” she said.

“We have everything from Tennessee Early Intervention, to Jumping Junction, to Girls on the Run; to Junior Auxiliary’s Have a Heart, Give a Sole Project/Diaper Dash, to the Princess Parlor, to Dance and Martial Arts Studios. If it deals with children in Cleveland, we have it.”

Lori Hammonds, president of the MOMS Club, stated “Last year we invited only preschool and parent’s day out programs and had a great fair. But the feedback, we received, was to add additional services and business.

“We had 12 businesses last year and this year is going to be a lot bigger. We are so fortunate to have the support of the Cleveland Family YMCA who really works along side of our organization. We have our monthly meetings there and they are offered the space today too. We couldn’t do it without their support.”

Katie Edmonson, membership vice president, also stated, “Plus each vendor provided a door prize! After getting your ballot initialed by all the booths, you automatically get to draw for a door prize.

“Plus we have coupons donated by Deli Boys for everyone attending. It’s a win-win situation. You get great information, all in one place, and may even win a prize. Additionally, the MOMS Club will have a table themselves to introduce ourselves to the community,” Edmonson said.

“If you are looking for a wonderful group of stay-at-home moms who actively support one another, we are the group. We offer a monthly calendar with events including play dates, field trips, Mom’s Nights Out, a book club, how to seminars, lunch bunches, breakfast buddies and family activities.”
