Hello families,

Happy New Year! We want to share with the group two emails we received containing  some great information on very low cost and free events happening in the area.

We hope you are having a fantastic 2012 so far! If you have something to share, please email us at gardencityfamilies@gmail.com – remember, the event must be under $5 or free!

Best,

Hi everyone!

I hope everyone’s holiday season was wonderful.  Also, I hope we are all catching our breath with the start of a brand new year and taking at least a few moments here and there to rest and recharge.

Here is a friendly reminder of the upcoming Saturday Morning Kids’ Music and Stories event at the Beverly Public Library on Essex Street.  It will be held Saturday, January 14, 2012 at 10 a.m. 

Each Saturday morning program is a half-hour long in the Sohier Room, right next door to the Children’s Room at the Main Library.  Music and stories are geared toward children aged 0-5, and as you know, everyone is always welcome!

Thank you so much for your food donations at the December program.  We were able to donate almost 5 pounds of peanut butter, and a thank you note was sent to the library addressed to the Children’s Room and to Children’s Room Parents (all of you!!).

My request this New Year is that any and all parents and caregivers who can spare one (unexpired) container of plain peanut butter, would you kindly bring it with you on Saturday, January 14?  Beverly Bootstraps, Cabot Street, Beverly, is a social services agency serving many families and children in Beverly and the surrounding area.  They are in great need of this item for their programs.  What a thoughtful donation from all of us parents and caregivers — from anyone who loves and cares for children and families — this will be!  There will be a marked box into which you may drop your donation that morning or just hand to me and I will make sure it gets there.

As always, please feel free to forward this to family and friends who might be interested in this free event. Looking forward to seeing you soon and thank you!

Warm regards,

Liz

a/k/a “Miz Liz!”

P.S. Here are future dates for our program:  same day, same time.  February 11, March 3, April 14, May 12.  See you soon!

Hi All,

I know some of you like to go to the charity Pancake Breakfast that is held at the Vittori Rocci Post once a month. This month, on January 29th from 8:30 – 11, Harborlight Nursery School will be partnering with the Vittori Rocci Post. Harborlight Nursery School will earn 40% of all ticket sales that are made prior to January 24th.

If you plan to go, and would like to help out a wonderful local preschool, please contact me and I would gladly sell you tickets. They are $4/adults and $3/children and include unlimited pancakes, sausages, ham, scrambled eggs, baked beans, applesauce, juice, coffee, and tea. I am so excited about this event! It should be a fun time!

Thanks!

Ann Mueller Wilder
