One Big Family Picnic
Don't miss out on our annual One Big Family Picnic on Friday, May 17th, from 5-7PM. The event will be at Wescott, and we will have pizza, dessert, a DJ, balloon artist, volleyball and more.
We are as excited as ever for the picnic tomorrow at Wescott School! We have decided to bring the event inside due to the weather forecast. Even if the rain has stopped, the temperature has not gone above the mid 50's for the past week, and without the sun to help, it will be a chilly night outside.
Onto the good news! Food will be served in the MPR and the following events will still be available: DJ/Music, hula hoop contest, limbo contest, face painting, origami, helping hands charity activity and balloon animals.
We look forward to seeing you tomorrow!
Volunteers do make this event possible. Please sign up here to help.
Ready For SchoolA Helping Hands Committee partnership
The Helping Hands Committee will once again be partnering with our local Cradles to Crayons organization for their “Ready For School” initiative. We will have a booth/stand at the One Big Family Picnic on 5/17 but you can donate/help now.
The Ready for School initiative runs from June through September and provides thousands of children with vital back-to-school items. Items include a backpack full of school supplies, properly-fitting clothing, books, shoes, and other critical items. Their goal this year is to pack and distribute at least 50,000 backpacks, as well as 4,000 Uniform Packs and thousands of KidPacks including everyday shoes, books, clothing, and other basic essentials.
For the cost of just $10, you can provide a backpack filled with all the school supplies necessary for a child in need. Sponsor one child or sponsor ten, the sky’s the limit. For every backpack sponsored, The Up Foundation will match the donation, dollar for dollar. The Up Foundation is a local family run Foundation with the mission to help children in need.
Please join us in our effort to help a child start their school year off right and to give a hand to the less fortunate.
Thank you for your support,
Diana Semmelhack, Zivit Blonder, Lauren Bauer
