A Few Announcements…


In order to promote a more prompt start to our MOPS meetings, we will be handing out tickets to the first 20 moms in doors of the multipurpose room.  We’ll draw one ticket at the meeting and that lucky mom will win a cool door prize.    If you’d like a chance to win, be punctual!

Our meeting starts at 9:00 a.m.  You may drop off your children with our excellent MOPPETS staff as early as 8:45 a.m.  If you have been tapped to bring food, please have it in the multipurpose room before 9:00 a.m. so that we can start moms through the food line.  We understand that some moms have older children in elementary schools or preschools that do not start until 9:00 a.m. who cannot be at MOPS until after 9:00 a.m.    If it works better for you, you may drop off your food on Wednesday night and leave it in the refrigerator  or on the counter in the kitchen just off the multipurpose room.   Be sure to mark that it is for MOPS and our hospitality team will be sure to put it out for you.  



If Lincoln Public Schools cancels classes due to weather, we will cancel MOPS. It is also possible that we would cancel due to poor weather even if LPS continues to be in session.  We will update the blog by 8:00 a.m. if MOPS has been canceled.
