Scarborough Fair is two days away!

We are so excited about Scarborough Fair this weekend! It is going to be a fun event for all ages. There are great things for the smaller kids like the Nemo Moonwalk and the Old Fishing Pond, and cool things for the older kids like karaoke, a photo booth and a video game truck!

If you haven't purchased your wristbands yet, they will be available the day of the event as well.

Volunteers are still needed. If you have some time to volunteer, we would greatly appreciate your help! www.stmes.ivolunteer.com/scarboroughfair

Thanks for your support in planning this event. We couldn't do it without you!

Thanks to Amy Melton for facilitating our first book club discussion of the year, and to the parents who joined us for the discussion. Look for our next book club selection in December.

Please join us for an evening panel event on December 5 at 6:30, "Contemporary Parenting Concerns: What is it about over-scheduling, technology and sexuality that gives us anxiety as parents?"

The TED talk with Garhett Wagers has been moved to Monday, December 10 at 6:30 p.m. in Hauser Hall.

Please let us know if you are interested in attending either of these events at parentguild@stmes.org
