Help the Club!

Volunteering is rewarding, fun and a great way to make new friends.

The Lake Oswego Mothers Club is a volunteer organization for moms, run by moms. We are always looking for members who would like to help, whether it’s for a specific event or on an ongoing basis.

As a volunteer your commitment is essential in keeping the club functioning. Without our volunteers we would not have the great resources we enjoy such as playgroups, open plays, moms night out, preschool forum, etc. Please review the section under “Volunteer Positions” to learn which volunteer category your position falls under.

Some volunteer commitments require 1 or 2 hours a month, while others offer the opportunity to make a difference in how the club runs and what it offers.

We invite all our members to share their skills and talents. If you are interested in contributing your time, please contact the President.
