Many Updates Have Been Made
From karate to clay classes, several new classes are available to pick from this fall. We are adding more as they are posted, but use the Kids Classes Guide to help you plan your after school activities.

Beacon's After School Program goes until 6pm every day and runs each day that school is in session. All Sport has a few spots left in their program, should you want to coordinate with your own workout or kids swimming lessons at the gym.

What'll it be this week from Get Frosted Cupcakery? The Cookies 'n Cream looked perfect, but word on the street is that the Lemon Raspberry is flying out of the case as soon as it goes in.

Maybe you saw these two outside of Style Storehouse sellng lemonade for a cause - to fight Alzheihmer's "for Gigi." When you're walking all the way down Main Street, go all the way around the bend for more boutiques, and you may see them again.

There' a new partner in town at The Pfotoshop! Jackie's sister. And they just went shopping in NYC to fill the store. Look for cheeky cards, stunning jewelry, men's stuff (tools?), kids stuff, and even doggie gifts.
