SRMC members have consistently voted the SRMC newsletter, Mom's the Word, as one of their favorite benefits of club membership. It is published and mailed out monthly by SRMC member volunteers. In it you will find all of the latest happenings within the SRMC and the local community, including a calendar of events and planned outings. Every issue includes parenting articles, a message from a featured Board member, and fun tidbits. We encourage members to submit articles, recipes, crafts, and anything else that might interest our SRMC community.

We also offer an electronic version of the newsletter to our members. It is posted in the Files section of our online community, Big Tent, which is for members only.
