Welcome to Families First Monthly
A resource for parents
Thank you to all the readers who colored in the display ads and sent them in for a chance to win in our annual prize drawing. And thanks to the following businesses for donating the prizes: Old Town Playhouse, Hazelnut Kids, Jonathon B Pub, Korner Gem, Riverside Canoes, Tucker’s of Northport, Thimbleberry Kids, The Cottage, Brainstorm, Dolls and More, Forget-me-not Florist, and the The Bay Theatre. I hope the winners enjoy their prizes.
This issue features stories related to a variety of parties. And families love to get together, especially to celebrate things like weddings, graduations, or the birthday of a friend or family member. I hope you find some great ideas or tips to use as you plan your next gathering.
It is the season for Winter Carnivals and outdoor snow-related events and sports. Oh, and snow days. Have a wonderful time playing in the white stuff because it will be gone before you know it.
Thank you for picking up Families First Monthly or for reading the publication on line.
