Rifle Moms for Moms owner Leanne Worton celebrated the site’s 1 Year Anniversary with an evening news interview on ABC’s KREX Channel 5 News. The segment highlighted the site’s open forums to discuss anything from social planning to tips on child care. Rifle mom Kristine Llacuna uses the site to help her balance between her roles as mother and business owner.
Llacuna says, “One of the biggest things with being a business mom, is there are other business moms on there. It’s been nice talking to people about how hard it is to run a business and be a mom, sometimes it gets a little hectic.”
Leanne Worton started as a member of nearby Carbondale Moms for Moms in January of 2011. As a mother and active community member she loved the site so much that four months later she launched a Moms for Moms site in her own rural community of Rifle, CO in April 2011.
“Coming here with a 2 year old, it was really tough to find other moms who were in the same place that I was. Rifle is a rural area and it can be hard to make friends as a mom, says Worton.
Now one year later Rifle Moms for Moms has 221 members who have discussed 222 Forum topics, posted 775 Events, shared 335 photos, and created 24 niche Groups. Congratulations Leanne, you are building a stronger community by engaging the moms in Rifle!

Flavored Milk in Schools? Bend Moms for Moms members earn media attention for school milk discussion
A recent discussion on Bend Moms for Moms garnered the attention of the local news media and put several moms in the spotlight on an issue that is near and dear to their heart: the prevalence of flavored milk in the Bend La Pine School District. One simple post from a concerned mother encouraging others to write the school board, PTAs and nutrition services should they be interested in joining a fight to switch to all-white milk, led to the most popular discussion on the site in its one-year history. Moms on both sides of the debate joined in on the honest, and sometimes controversial discussion, and several have started a group to actively petition the school board.
“This is what it’s all about,” said Sarah Daily, Bend Moms for Moms owner. “Encouraging open and honest debate about the issues we as mothers care about and are invested in for our children.
