The newsletter was originally called the Dailly Double Times and was hand-typed. It is now called Mothering Multiples and is strictly electronic. It's e-mailed to members once a month from September through June.
Other communication changes have included the website www.ccmomc.org, which was started in 2001, group e-mail reminders, and notifications, as well as the club's private online forum.
In 1975, the club was started with 15 members but grew steadily over time. In 1996 there were 142 members, and currently we have over 200.

This fundraiser original consisted mainly of household items, baked goods and dug perennials donated by members. Each year’s auction has helped members in need as well as the community.
After 9/11, we sold all the leftover cookbooks to guests at our clothing sale and raised over $500 for a family of twins who lost their father in the tragedy
Sky’s the Limit Playground - Kerr Park, Downingtown
Opened in September, 2004, Sky’s the Limit is by far the biggest charitable effort undertaken by our club. During almost 4 years time we were able to raise $375,000 in donations and in-kind gifts. We accomplished this through many avenues including auctions, 5K’s, brick and fence post sales, grants, and corporate and individual sponsorships. Sky’s the Limit is the only 100% handicap accessible playground in Chester County. It provides safe and stimulating play regardless of ability. In addition it has become a community and club meeting place.
CYWA Room Redux Project
The 2007/08 and 2008/09 years, CCMOMC members headed to Coatesville to renovate rooms the Community Youth and Women's Alliance (CYWA). The first year we tackled two bedrooms and a hallway. The second year we took on a kitchen, living room, and bathroom. These spaces accommodate up to seven families at a time. Moms and their children can enter the facility for up to six weeks while they reassess their living situation and try to figure out what their next steps might be. The idea of our renovation was to give the families who walk through the door to a sunny, clean, and warm environment with which to make a fresh start. The club accomplished this in spades.
Giraffe Bed for the Chester County Hospital NICU
From 2005 - 2007, $10,000 was raised to help pay for a giraffe bed at the Chester County Hospital NICU.
Since 2008, CCMOMC has been organizing the children's section at Chester County Hospital's Mayfest fundraiser. The funds raised help the hospital pay for patients who are uninsured. In 2010 alone, we raised more than $10,000 for the hospital.
In 2010, CCMOMC created a college scholarship for qualified high school seniors in Chester County to help offset some of the costs of college.
In the beginning the sale was held in a basement of a church with just a few sellers. Over the years our sale has become a much-anticipated event. Held twice a year, it is a chance to clean out our closets and toys, find great new items, and provide the community an excellent opportunity to get great deals for their families. With the Fall 2011 Clothing Sale, we returned to our United Sports Training Center location in Downingtown, now its current location.
