With the Cape Cod Parent Resource Fair rapidly approaching we will be sharing blog posts on our participating sponsors, vendors and nonprofits. You will find out more about these amazing businesses and what they offer to our community. They will be sharing their services, advice, what challenges face our community as well as upcoming events they will be having. Make sure to check out our virtual program and resource guide ahead of the event so you can plan for what you want to see including our famous speaker panels. If you preregister for the speakers you will earn extra raffle tickets. You also earn them by attending any of our entertainment sessions! Just email us and you will receive tickets at the door! We hope to see you at the Resource Fair!
1. Tell us about your business/non profit and how it benefits local families?
We help to make the special events in a person’s life truly memorable
2. Where is it located?
East Sandwich, MA
3. What is your favorite thing about our community?
We love the pride so many of us share in the place where we live. We year-round residents choose to be here because we love this island, and we deeply appreciate the beautiful aspects of our community.
4. How else do you get involved with the community?
We have been active in supporting Special Olympics Cape Cod, PanMass, Cape Abilities and National MS Society
5. What do you think are the biggest challenges facing parents in our community?
The ability for us to provide adequate employment and housing opportunities for our children once they graduate high school or college is an essential shortcoming the Cape needs to overcome.
6. What is your favorite memory or story over the years involving you and your business
The very first project we installed was at a local children’s boutique. We set up the backdrop then waited inconspicuously to try and catch a reaction from a passer-by. The first child to see the rainbow colored wall was a little girl, perhaps 3 or 4. She spotted the wall, gasped, held her cheeks with her hands, and ran towards the colorful streamers at full speed! Her excitement told us we were on the right track- and we’ve been making smiles ever since.
7. What advice would you give parents and caregivers in our community?
Be realistic about the opportunities our children have ahead of them, and support what’s best for them, rather than what we may want for them. “Follow the Child”- Maria Montessori
8. Do you have any specials, events, or anything else taking place this upcoming year that our parents should know about?
Our official Launch Party is in the spring! Until then- we can’t wait to continue elevating events all over Cape Cod!
