For just $30 a year, members get to participate in all that WAPOM has to offer!
Monthly Parent Meetings
Our monthly parent meetings are held the 2nd Tuesday of every month from 6:30-8pm at St Joseph Parish Activity Center, 132 S Millwood, in the heart of the Delano district. The activity center offers a central location and a casual, fun, welcoming meeting space. These get togethers are designed for socialization and exchange of information with other parents of multiples. At some meetings, guest speakers give a short presentation to share information on topics of interest. Past speaker topics have included menu planning, scrapbooking to preserve the pictures of our children, couponing, minimizing taxes, and family yoga. Every meeting has plenty of time to discuss joys, difficulties, concerns and curiosities of our life with multiples.
Play Dates and Outings
WAPOM play dates are scheduled frequently. Locations and times vary depending on which members volunteer to open their homes and host a play date. This is a great way to socialize with other parents of multiples while your children socialize and have fun too! In addition to WAPOM play dates, WAPOM members also participate in many Wichita area play groups, such as Parents as Teachers, MOPS, and Mommy and Me.
Semi-annual WAPOM Consignment Sales
Whether you are buying or selling, this is a must-see event! Our semi-annual WAPOM Consignment Sale is typically held in mid-Spring and mid-Fall. Consignors enjoy very generous terms, and our shoppers find exceptional deals on gear, furniture, clothes and toys. The sale is open to the public with free admission Friday and Saturday. Held at St Joseph Parish Activity Center, 132 S Millwood, our sale is conveniently located in the Delano district. For more information, click our "Consignment Sale" tab above.
Semi-annual Family Picnic
These are some of our biggest events of the year! Typically the picnics are held in April/May and September/October at a local park or botanical garden. With delicious food and family entertainment, these are "must attend" events for the entire family!
Many of our members generously donate their time and energy to help other member families in need. With dinner donations, gift cards, bedrest visitations, childcare and more, we strive to help and support our members in their times of need.
We have many books and articles available to our members. Check out a book at a monthly meeting, or by stopping by our "library". Available topics include multiple birth pregnancy, feeding, parenting, sleep issues and many more.
Multiples of America Membership & Newsletter
Your WAPOM dues include membership to Mutliples of America (MOA), formerly the National Organization of Mothers of Twins Clubs (NOMOTC). This group is the leading national authority for research, education and support in raising multiple birth children. You'll receive access to their website and resources, as well as a subscription to their quarterly newsletter, the Family Notebook.
Parents Night Out
We adore our multiples, but we still need kid-free time now and then. Parents Nights Out are often held on the last Friday of the month. Join WAPOM for a variety of events, including wine tastings, dinner and dancing, painting and sculpture workshops, and coffee and dessert meet ups. Locations will vary based on interest. Come have fun with the grown ups!
Have you ever wanted to learn how to make your own jewelry? Maybe you always wished you'd learned sewing basics so you could make Halloween costumes and mend clothes. Would you love to make Pinterest worthy cookies for your next bake sale donation? WAPOM occasionally hosts a DIY workshop to help you learn or brush up on some valuable skills. From installing car seats, making jewelry, couponing, cookie decorating, sewing and photography, these are events you won't want to miss!
