AFC has once again bought a block of tickets for the Big Apple Circus. The show is Friday, May 2, at 11:00am under the big top in Boston’s City Hall Plaza.
Discounted tickets are available in the members-only section of the AFC web site. Tickets are $17 each. Children under 3 are free when they sit on an adult’s lap. One child per lap.
We have compiled all of the “ads” from people looking for playgroups. They are listed both in this month’s newsletter and in the Playgroup Advertisements section of the website. We hope you enjoy meeting new families!
The 2013 Childcare and Preschool Options in Arlington booklet is available now! Our completely updated annual summary of all the licensed preschools and daycare centers in Arlington has been released. Our local go-to guide provides details such as pricing, hours and schedules. It is available for purchase ($5) at the following local stores:
It is also available for $7.50 at www.arlingtonfamilyconnection.org/blog/?page_id=304.
It’s that time of year again, when the kids show off their dance moves, win silly prizes, eat pizza and watermelon, and have a great time! Our annual Pizza Party (and food collection for the Arlington Food Pantry) is here again.
Come have fun outdoors with other AFC members and enjoy a picnic pizza and ice cream dinner at our eleventh annual “Pizza at the Playground” event, Sunday, September 22 from 4:00 to 6:00pm at Parallel Playground, located at the corner of Medford Street and Mystic Valley Parkway, near the Medford rotary.
AFC will bring pizza, lemonade, water, ice cream, and watermelon…you bring picnic blankets and the kids! We encourage AFC members to bring family and friends, and anyone else interested in exploring what AFC has to offer. It’s a great opportunity to renew your membership or join AFC for the first time. The fantastic and popular DJ Ed Regal will entertain the kids non-stop, with his funny music, games, prizes, bubbles and tons of fun for all ages.
It all supports a good cause! Instead of charging an entrance fee, we will accept donations for the Arlington Food Pantry. Since 1990, the Arlington Food Pantry has been offering year-round services to those in need of assistance, providing food to 375 people per month on average. Please avoid glass containers and perishable foods. We will have a box to collect monetary donations.
Suggested donations include: canned fruits and vegetables, peanut butter and jelly, canned tuna, meals-in-a-can or box (spaghetti, stews, soups, ravioli), pasta and rice, health and beauty items (toothpaste, toothbrushes, soap, shampoo, toilet paper, etc.), cereal, baby food, diapers, fruit juices, coffee, tea, canned tomatoes and tomato sauce, crackers, cookies, mixes. Again, please no glass or perishables.
Please RSVP to email@example.com by September 19, letting us know how many adults and how many children will attend.
All AFC memberships expire at the end of August, so now is the very best time to renew your membership to ensure you receive next month’s newsletter and AFC benefits. Don’t miss out on all the useful resources, fun activities, popular events, and special discounted tickets offered by AFC.
At less than $2 a month, you can’t go wrong by renewing! Membership costs are $25 for one year, good through August 2014.
