Celebrating families of every shape, size and makeup


We are an inclusive family-oriented organization striving to support our community and enrich the lives of our members.


We are an inclusive and family-oriented organization that strives to support our community and enrich the lives of our members by cultivating connections and friendships between local parents, caregivers, and their children.

HWMC provides social events, resources, and education to families across the north shore of Massachusetts. As a member-driven, public-spirited group, we actively invest in and work to build an uplifting and inclusive environment for our membership.

Spring is in full swing and we have a full line up of activities to get you out and about! It was so fun to see everyone who made the Egg Hunt this weekend. A huge thanks to Fig Balloon Co. for donating our balloon arch and to Shana Coletti who donated her time again as our beloved bunny.

We hope to see new members who joined our club since last spring for one of our favorite annual traditions - the New Member Social! The reception is Thursday 4/4 and features delicious treats and beverages and is a great venue to meet fellow moms and learn more about the Club's programming. 

For Wellness this month we will be having a mom’s yoga class on April 10th and there’s still room to join us for that, so hop on Wild Apricot to register if you need a night to unwind. Toddler Playgroup and Baby Group are still meeting weekly - it’s never too late to join them! In addition, Book Club is excited to be reading Black Cake by Charmaine Wilkerson this month, a book that was recently adopted into a limited series by AppleTV. Then, we are very excited for our Parents’ Night Out Keg Party and are hoping for great weather and a fun adult night out that will raise meaningful funds through our Beirut tournament for Community Giving Tree. This is a great night to grab a sitter and take the night off to mingle, play games and enjoy a casual evening outside.  On that note, don’t forget we are collecting items for the Community Giving Tree through the end of April so it’s a great time to clean out your kids’ closets and toys or grab an extra item or two at check out. See the Community Outreach section below to learn more about their greatest needs at this time as well as drop sites in both Hamilton and Wenham.  Keep in mind - any HWMC event is also an opportunity to donate and any council member can help get your donations into the right hands.  A HUGE thanks to all who have participated already.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
