Halloween Party

We plan to have a Halloween Party on Tuesday October 28th from 10am to 12pm at the Mt. Olivet Church in Shrewsbury. We hope to have crafts, activities, a costume parade (have kids dress up), goody bags, snacks, etc. But this party can only happen if I have several volunteers to help set up, help with the various stations, clean up, etc. Please let me know if you can help with the Halloween party, as it is usually a very popular event. The party is free for all!

Playgroup/gathering for working parents

I have heard from several of the working parents that they would like to arrange a get together to meet some other moms (and dads). One of our members, Nicole Cooper, is willing to help out to arrange something but would like help from one or two other moms. Please let me know if you can work together with Nicole to plan something so that you may have some activities to do with your children at night or on weekends. I think there is a real need for this and I would love to see it happen.
The SCDC is excited to announce our annual Toy and Baby Gear Sale. It will be held on Sunday November 9th from 9am to 12pm at the Coolidge Elementary School on 1 Florence St. in Shrewsbury. Please note the location change. This sale is like a giant yard sale under one roof. People sell their gently used toys, baby gear (high chairs, strollers, exersaucers), books, clothing, games, etc. The event is very well attended and is our biggest fundraiser of the year. We will be charging a $1 admission fee to aide in our fundraising efforts so we can provide some additional free services and classes to the community. If you would like to rent a table please contact Jennifer Luke at The tables are $25 a piece and you keep all the money you make! Space is limited to about 40 tables and it is first come first serve, so do not hesitate to contact us and reserve your spot.
