Family Fun in the Fort: Kids and Family Expo

Kids of the MOMS Club 

After the holiday high always comes the winter woes and next Saturday, January 13th is shaping up to be awfully woeful; with a forecasted low temperature of 16 degrees and nary a holiday party in sight, the day promises to be extra boring for parents and their children.  That is, of course, except for parents and children who plan to attend the Fort Thomas MOMS Club Kids and Family Expo at the Fort Thomas Community Center (Mess Hall).  

Looking for a home in Fort Thomas? Call Rob Beimesche today. 859-240-3219. This is an advertisement. 
Moms Offering Moms Support (MOMS) Club is an international organization of support groups for stay-at-home mothers.  The local chapter, the Fort Thomas MOMS Club, provides dozens of young and experienced mothers alike with support, lifelong friendship, and the proverbial “village” it takes to raise a child (author’s note: I am a current member and previously was President).  Next Saturday, the MOMS Club is looking to expand their village and provide an outlet for entertainment for local families on an otherwise cold day.


From 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday January 13, the MOMS Club will present the Fort Thomas Kids and Family Expo at the Fort Thomas Community Center (Mess Hall).  Businesses from around the area will be in attendance to provide families with fun and information about their business.  Some planned exhibitors include: Honey Hill Petting Zoo, Newport Aquarium, Coney Island, Fort Thomas Recreation Department, Wise Owl, Trent Montessori, Kindermusik with Cindy Sugarman, Belladance, Cincinnati Children’s Museum,  and Usborne Books, to name a few.

Per Kate Haas, President of MOMS Club, “All of our vendors are donating amazing raffle items or free activities for the kids and they’ll be sharing what they have to offer local families. Honey Hill Mobile Petting Zoo and the Newport Aquarium will have animals for the kids to interact with. The Cincinnati Children’s Museum will have activities for them to do and our police and fire fighters will be there for them to meet. WoodmenLife will also be doing take home DNA and fingerprinting kits for families.”  There will also be a silent auction and proceeds will go to the Care Closet. Make sure to browse all items including Coney Island Tickets to children books. The auction will close at 11am.

Haas went on to say, “We’re really excited to get the community together and get kids out of the house for something in the winter.”

Be sure to stop by the Fort Thomas Community Center on Saturday January 13 from 9-noon and check out the Fort Thomas MOMS Club by visiting their website.
