The Grosse Pointe Moms Club was co-founded in 2000 by Grosse Pointe residents. They were new moms seeking peer support and socialization for their children. Realizing a group like this did not exist in the greater Grosse Pointe area, the ambitious new moms decided to start one. The club prospered under the International MOMS Club umbrella for 3 years. As membership grew to more than 70 moms, it became necessary for the club to localize under a non-affiliated group of its own. In 2004, the Grosse Pointe Moms Club, Inc. was born, offering the same benefits and activities as it always had. Activities include art date, business social, chat loop, coffee club, cooking club, helping hands, kids outings, lunch bunch, music class, mom's night out, park playdates, playgroups, service projects, themed parties, walking clubParenting & Family
