Hello all- we have MISSED YOU!!
We just came from a successful summer season, where we eased our way back to our “normal”. Here are a few of our favorite summer moments:
We were able to host our annual 4th of July celebration with a great turnout and an excellent firework display. We also were able to offer and run our Summer Camps, although we had limited space due to capacity restrictions. However, in light of our current circumstances, the children and staff were able to reconnect with friends, made some new ones, and overall had a great summer!
With that success, we’re excited to present our Fall MOSAIC filled with many of our favorite autumn-themed events! We have Preschool, Extended Care and Teen programs open and off to a great start. We are also back to offering programs for all ages, including our long-awaited Kids Korner program that offers childcare for children 6 weeks of age to 12 years of age.
As we prepare ourselves for our busiest time of the year, we begin with our Special Events, specifically with our annual Fall Yard Sale returning on September 18th. Details for this event can be found here.
During the pandemic lockdown, we had multiple opportunities to help our community, such as the call center for food deliveries for seniors and those with health risks, assist with vaccine clinics, and cleaning the building in preparation of reopening. However, that wasn’t quite the same as being able to see and serve our community on a daily basis and provide them with activities and opportunities that they enjoy. For that, I think I can speak for everyone in the MPCC family, we are grateful!
If you have not had the opportunity to check out our MOSAIC, you can pick up a copy at the Community Center or see it here. Thank you for your patience and we look forward to seeing you soon!
