SHREWSBURY, Massachusetts – Please join the Shrewsbury Child Development Committee for a holiday party. It will be held on Saturday December 15th from 1 to 4pm at the Spring Street School in Shrewsbury. There will be games, crafts, activities, songs, stories, refreshments and a special appearance by Santa. Santa will be available for pictures and we will send each child home with a 4X6 picture. We can also email the picture if you would like to make additional copies on your own. The cost of the event is $10 per child (age 12 months and under free). We would also like to help the community given the time of year. There is a program in Worcester called the School Aged Mother’s program that provides services for teenagers and their children. The program allows: “pregnant and parenting teens to continue their education at the Gerald Creamer Center, an alternative school of the Worcester Public Schools, while learning about pregnancy and parenting issues that are important for mother and child. These teens earn the ability to “shop” at the school “store.” The most needed items for the teens to “buy” are diapers and wipes. So we are asking if you could donate either a package of diapers or wipes. This is not mandatory, but we thought it would be nice to give back to the community. We will collect the money for the event and diapers and wipes at the door. But you have to be on the list to attend the party, so please email Jennifer Luke at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell me your name, your child(ren) names and their ages.
