The First Light Festival is Brookline’s annual winter festival, showcasing the talents of local artists, musicians and performers at businesses and other venues throughout town. There will be family-friendly performances and activities, free toy giveaways, food samples and more. Festival-goers can come out for an evening of free entertainment and to get a head start on their holiday shopping at one of Brookline’s many shops. Visit http://www.firstlightbrookline.com for a map and schedule of events.
Join Lawrence's New Family Welcome by being a first point of contact to families new to Lawrence. The welcome team is in search of 1 or 2 more members to help with school tours, showing new families around the school and answering any questions they may have. Tours currently occur one Tuesday per month at 8:15 (after drop-off) and one Thursday at 1:40 (before pick-up), so anyone who can commit to two or three of those per semester would be a big help! The welcome team would appreciate any help, but is seeking a middle school parent/caregiver, in particular, to add to the range of experience available to new families. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to get involved.
