Merri-Happenings:  We have a wonderful selection of parties and outing for you. You don’t bid on these, just sign your name and pay – thanks to the generosity of the hosts, the proceeds support Tiered Tuition. These Happenings are open to everyone in our community, including alumni families, alumni students, parents, grandparents, your friends and family.  The final details are still being set, but descriptions will be coming soon. You will want to sign up for at least a couple of these fabulous events:

  • Yin Yoga and Essential Oils – Lucretia Woodruff and Cary Ouelette
  • Midwestern Fun – The Lukis, Bloch, Espy and Sloan families
  • Cruise to the Course – John and Lauren Manganello
  • Bourbon Tasting Party – Phil Kaplan and Tay Veitch
  • One more that is just too good to mention yet.

Sign up to work a shift the night of the auction or during set-up Friday, April 7th:  We need help at the auction or during set-up. If every family pitches in by working one shift, the event will run smoothly. Please sign up now to help: www.SignUpGenius.

Send in your RSVP:  If you have not received an invitation in the mail, please let us know!  If the ticket price is going to keep you from coming, sponsorship tickets are often available at a reduced price.

Bring a Friend: Encourage current Maine Coast Waldorf grandparents and friends from outside the community to come – they come for free! Just send in an RSVP for them.

Buy Cash Raffle Tickets: 5 cash raffle tickets were included in your invitation – they are $25 each or 5 for $100. In 2015 a grandparent won over $2,000 with the purchase of just one ticket.

Need a babysitter for the evening? Many Maine Coast Waldorf School students are available to babysit. Please stop by the grade school office, the EC office, or email Mary Martin, [email protected], for that information.
