Needed: Yarn for hats. I am junior at Merriconeag High School, and I am organizing a donation to Hurricane Sandy victims on Staten Island. The donation is 10 to 20 high school knitted hats. In order to begin this project, I need yarn, so I am asking all Merriconeag families for old yarn that you don’t want, or half used skeins that don’t match anything. Size, color and material doesn’t matter, I will accept anything and everything. I have placed a labeled container in Lisa’s office and one in the high school building. Thank you, Emma Dolan. (If you have any questions you can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org) (01/08)
Friday Afternoon Family Skate: Do you and / or your children have Friday afternoons free? If so, come skate with other MWS families that have Friday afternoons free. We have rented rink time at Falmouth's Family Ice Center (http://www.familyice.org/) on Fridays from 1:40 to 2:40 beginning January 18 until March 29th (excluding March 22). Anyone within the MWS community is welcome and encouraged to join. The cost for a family to skate all 10 weeks is $100. The cost for a single person (child or adult) to skate all 10 weeks is $50. If committing to skate each week seems to be too much, a family can drop-in to skate any week for a cost of $13 per family per drop-in, or a single skater can drop-in any week for a cost of $7 per drop-in. For those that would like to sign up you can either contact me (Julia Dodge, 829-3738, email@example.com) and I'll get you all squared away, or you can drop off a check, made payable to me, in either Lisa's office or Deeda's office. Any questions, give me a call or email.It is great fun. It is a super way to start the weekend, to get some exercise and to socialize all at the same time. I hope you consider joining us. See you on the ice! (01-08)
