We are catching up our blog with a great big ‘Thank You!’ to March’s Volunteer of the Month, Rebakah Ausmus!
Rebekah met her husband, Jason, at Michigan State University sixteen years ago. Go Green! Go White! They have two energetic boys; Carter (age 7), Luke (age 4) plus Chewy the Hamster (age 1 on St. Patrick’s Day). Their family moved to Superior, CO three years ago and absolutely love this little community.
Rebekah became a MOD Mom when she moved to Colorado three years ago. On the long drive here from Michigan the reality of actually moving so far away from home and not knowing anyone hit. She Googled moms’ groups in the Louisville/Superior area and MOD Moms popped into her search. “In truth, I was a little intimidated by the size of the moms group at first but soon discovered my fears were not necessary. I am so glad I started going to activities which resulted in meeting so many nice parents,” Rebekah tells us.
Rebekah is our Director of Partner Events. She worked in events and sales for a major hotel chain for six years then once becoming a parent she worked in the bridal department for Pottery Barn for two years. “I truly love getting to know people and bringing people together for any reason. If I can partner with a local vendor that results in a fun event for the moms and/or the kids then I am super happy! I hope to maybe start a decorating and renovation subgroup next year since I know a lot of us are renovating right now,” which is exciting to a lot of our moms.
Rebekah loves the Easter Egg Hunt! That was the first event they went to with MOD Moms. She is excited that it is coming up in a few weeks. The Holiday Party has the best Santa ever! Plus, the moms that plan the Holiday party do such a great job collecting food for others in need in partnership with Community Food Share https://modmomsnorth.org/philanthropy/ Their kids love all the free classes at the local gyms and Great Play. Rebekah is in the cooking club, which is kind of funny because she feels she is not the best cook but that the ladies there really inspire her to try new things. Don’t let her fool you, Rebekah is an extremely talented cook! Their family is excited to go to the MOD Moms Movie Event this year for the first time. MOD Moms is renting out the theater to view Beauty and the Beast and we rented out the theater twice in 2016 to view Zootopia and Finding Dory. She is also beginning to attend the brunch club, because who doesn’t love brunch?
Thank you for all that you do to make this a great community, Rebekah!
