Lowell Macaroni Kid: February 13, 2019

A Note From Your Publisher

By Barbara Evangelista, Publisher February 13, 2019

Happy Valentine's Day!  If all the stores are out of kids' Valentines cards for the big day tomorrow, check out our printable Valentine's Day cards.  They're cute, fun and unique!

Next week is February school vacation!  Our event calendar is jam-packed with all kinds of events, activities and family fun.  If you need a camp or half-day program for the kids, check out our list of February vacation local programs, camps, and activities.  

Did you see??  PAW Patrol Live!  We have four tickets to give away for the March 31 2:00 PM show at the Boch Center Wang Theatre in Boston.  Learn more about the show, check out the video, get ticket information and enter the giveaway.

We have some fun and useful information in this week's newsletter.  Last week, I met Briana "Hoops" Green of the Harlem Globetrotters.  What an amazing young woman!  Learn about the Globetrotters' TEAM message for youth and about what it's like to be a Globetrotter.

Teen volunteering opportunities are hard to find.  The iCan Bike program in April is a great program that helps to teach kids with disabilities how to ride a bike.  Teens 15 years and up can volunteer to help.  Learn more and register.

February is Black History Month -- see a list of our favorite books and movies that highlight the important people and events that helped shape African-American culture and history. 

Lots of inquiries are already coming in about summer camps.  If you need to find information on local or overnight summer camps or other summer activities, be sure to come to our Summer Camp & Kids Activities Fairs on March 3rd in Westford, March 10th in Tewksbury and March 24th in Concord.

If you're looking for things to do, check our new guide, INDOOR PLAY: A to Z Guide to Indoor Fun, for all kinds of ideas for things to do on cold, rainy or snowy days. Be sure to check the Event Calendar too for storytimes, playgroups, teen gaming and crafts, and all kinds of other local events.   If you don't mind a drive, check out the Event Calendar on our sister edition Macaroni Kid Acton-Concord-Bedford-Lexington.

Have a great week!
