Happy Easter Swap ‘n Play Families!
I hope everyone enjoys this holiday weekend. I was so greatful to see the sun today, I hope this means we might be seeing more of it sooner than later.

Speaking of springtime and sunshine, I think that swap could use a bit of a spring clean! Give the toys a good wipe down, clean behind all the clothing bins… all that fun stuff! So. April 28th, Saturday, from 9-12 we will be deep cleaning swap ‘n play! I was able to get use of the ballroom that morning, so we can have some kids playing upstairs while parents clean, and rotate watching kids. We could use a lot of help, even if it is for just part of the time! Mark your calendars now!!

I have a few other announements… so keep reading! See you around swap n play this week,

Illness Reminder

I know that the “sick winter months” are just about behind us, but just a reminder as we get through this last push until we are done with runny noses and coughs, please be cautious when bringing your child to swap ‘n play if they are sick. We really can pass germs around easily. Please use the hand sanitizer, kleenex, and baby wipes as needed; they are there for all of us to use!

If by chance you child does come down with a severe illenss such as Hand and Foot disease or a case of lice, if would be very helpful for the swap ‘n play group for you to send me an email so I can alert the group, of course I will keep family information confidential. I know that at least one other swap ‘n play operates this way, and families appreciate a “heads up” when serious illnesses hit.
Thanks for understanding. I really want to keep our families healthy!

Summer Concerts!

I am working in a Summer Concert Schedule in The Village Ballroom, and should have dates out soon to everyone!

Our first concert will be celebrating swap’s one year birthday, June 10th. CRAZY. Sunday, starting at 4pm: Mr. Ben’s Band and a potluck dinner.

Other performers will be coming this summer, and I am hoping to end with Elizabeth Mitchell in September, she has a new album out! We are working on ballroom availability to nail it down for sure.  Let’s hope I can get her!
