About Us

Being a mother can encompass joy, stress, frustration and awe. And like so many of life's best moments, the joy is sweeter and the stress is eased when shared with friends. The Pleasanton Mothers Club (PMC) provides a supportive community for mothers and mothers-to-be.

We have come together to make new friends for ourselves and our children, to learn more successful parenting, and to have fun along the way!

With your annual membership, not only are you part of an amazing group of moms, but you have access to a year full of exciting and fun social events. Here's what you have to look forward to with your annual membership to the Pleasanton Mother's Club.

3 FREE Family Parties throughout the year. Parties usually include yummy food and fun entertainment for the kids.

  • The Family Harvest Party
  • The Family Holiday Party
  • The Family Spring Party.
Age specific playgroups that are sure to get you and the kiddos out of the house and having some fun. Days, times and locations vary in hopes of accommodating everyone's schedules.

Monthly newsletter to help keep our mommies informed and up to date with the happenings of our club.

New member socials to help welcome you to the club.

Sandi Mende, with the help friend Katie Hoepke, formed the Pleasanton Mother’s Club in July 1992, making it the 22nd mothers club in the Bay Area.

In the beginning, Sandi dutifully approached local businesses and organizations to help fund a workshop to get the club off and running. The Pleasanton Police Department generously contributed half of what they needed to start the group, the rest Sandi personally funded.

She designed a flyer and distributed it to local kid-friendly establishments, the Stoneridge Mall, and to any woman she saw with a stroller. Her hard work and dedication paid off. She received 50 calls from women interested in joining the club within a two-week period.

Fifteen women attended the workshop and became the first Board of Directors: Sandi Mende, Kristi Hausmann, Jennifer Koolhoven, Susan Lopez, Kim Maslana, Frances Vaculin, Yvonne Hoppe, Andrea Holmquist, Elaine Swerdon, Rose Deming, Leslie Prud'homme, Tammy Schoonover, Cheryl Sankary, Helen Ott, and Cheryl Burleigh.

Their first official PMC meeting was October 20, 1992. They organized playgroups, holiday parties, kids’ outings, and the newsletter. And with each meeting, they grew larger and larger, gaining approximately 10 members a month. They set a maximum of 100 members and reached it in eight months. Over time, the PMC has opened membership, and we currently have almost 500 members.

Each year at our Mother’s Day Brunch, we honor a member of the PMC with the Sandi Mende award for outstanding service to the club.

Thank you Sandi!

Community Service

PMC highlights a different organization each month for members to support through contributions and volunteer time. We hope each one of you finds at least one organization this year that you are interested in and can support with your time or donations.

Collection for community service projects can take place the entire month, not just at the monthly meeting or events.

Our Community Service Coordinators are both ready and willing to pick up items or receive items at our homes. If you can’t come to the meeting, but would like to participate in the community service project, just let us know.


Joining a playgroup will be one of the most fulfilling and rewarding benefits of your PMC membership. It is an opportunity for yourself and your child/children to form incredible bonds and friendships with other PMC members. A playgroup isn't just friends for your kids to play with, it also provides a great support system for you!

Upon joining the PMC, you can search for an open playgroup on this page, in the newsletter, or by contacting the current Playgroup Coordinator.

Playgroups are typically age-based; however, the PMC does offer playgroups to include siblings as well .Each playgroup is an intimate group (5 to 10 members) of women and their children. The majority of playgroups meet on a weekly basis, either outside at a park when the weather cooperates or at members' homes during inclement weather.

When looking into playgroups, remember that each playgroup develops its own personality and style. If you do not find an existing playgroup that works for you, you are encouraged to start your own playgroup. You may participate in more than one playgroup if your schedule allows.
