Final Prep for Convention

TMOM Convention is about a month away, and we’re finalizing every detail.


Get ready to host TMOM Convention April 16-19 right here in Amarillo!

It’s show time! In less than two months, we will be hosting mothers of multiples from all over Texas April 16-19 at the 2015 TMOM Convention. It will be a fun and exciting weekend. I hope each of you is planning to attend all or at least part of this event. There are also plenty of opportunities for you to sign up and help with the different events. I will have the sign-up sheet at the March and April meetings.

Please remember that, while we are hosting the event, you will still need to pay the registration fee and for the events you plan to attend. If you need me to resend the second call letter to you, let me know. AAMOM will provide you a convention T-shirt if you are planning to be at convention. If you weren’t at the February meeting, please contact Terri and let her know your size. This T-shirt is separate from the rock band shirt that you will need for the Thursday night event. (It’s not required, but it is part of the theme.) Please bring your shirt to the March meeting. Terri will take them to her T-shirt connection and have “Security” put on the back of the shirt. The cost is $4. One last thing about convention, if you are planning to stay at the hotel, please get in touch with Kentra. We have members staying anywhere from zero to four nights. It’s your choice, but we need to make hotel reservations soon.

It has been brought to my attention that there is some confusion regarding convention. Some of you may have been under the impression you are required to attend convention and stay every night at the hotel. This is a misconception. While this is a great opportunity for you meet other women with multiples, learn about Texas Mothers of Multiples and have a fun girls’ weekend, you are NOT required to be at convention.

Please look at the proposed by-law changes that are in your March newsletter. We will vote in March on the changes to the by-laws. Because of the changes we are considering, officer election and installation will be pushed back one month for this year only. If you are interested in serving as an officer, contact Kentra or Terri.

Keep Terri and Taira in your thoughts. Terri is having surgery on her back. Taira will have surgery on her neck at the end of March. Also, Maddie, Taira’s youngest was in the hospital recently with breathing issues. She’s home and doing well. Thanks, Kentra and Terri for taking her the AAMOM goodie back. I’m sure Maddie loved it!

I’ve had several sleepless nights recently, which gives way too much time to think about things. I’m sure I’ll have several more as convention gets closer. I just want to take the time to thank each of you for putting up with my craziness, not just recently, but pretty much for the whole time you have known me. I want you to know that I appreciate your dedication to our club, your help with convention and most of all your friendship. Thank you!!

More Than Doubly Blessed!

Shelli Jones
AAMOM President
