About the Greater Newburyport Mothers and Families Club

Founded in 1999 with only a few families, the Greater Newburyport Mothers and Families Club (GNFC) has now expanded to more than 700 members and keeps growing!! We are a member-led organization that provides support, information and friendship for families with young children in the Greater Newburyport area – including Amesbury, Boxford, Georgetown, Groveland, Haverhill, Ipswich, Merrimac, Newbury, Rowley, Salisbury, West Newbury, and the Seacoast of New Hampshire. As the Club has grown, so has our involvement in the community and the extent of the events we host. Currently, you will find approximately 10 monthly GNFC exclusive kids’ events and 4-5 adult outings every month!! It’s a great way to meet other families in the community and … FIND FUN THINGS TO GET YOU AND YOUR KIDS OUT OF THE HOUSE!! The Club also offers playgroup-matching assistance and numerous “sub-groups” of moms and dads that have particular interests and hobbies that lend themselves to a smaller group within our larger Club. A few examples of our sub-groups include our Running Moms, Mothers of Multiples, Crafters, Stay-At-Home Dads, Working Parents, Single Parents, etc. The Greater Newburyport Mothers and Families Club runs a member-only online community at BigTent.com which provides a forum for member communications, a calendar of events with RSVP options and email reminder notices, a list of local baby-sitters, information on member-run businesses and much more.
