You Are Invited to LexFun’s Kick Off Party on 9/10

Lexington, Mass., August 31, 2015, — LexFUN! (Lexington’s Five and Under Network, Inc.) invites all families with young children five and under to come to its All-Day, Membership Open House and Kick Off Party on Thursday, September 10th at St. Brigid’s Parish, 2001 Massachusetts Ave, Lexington, MA 02421.  The event will run from 9:00 am – 6:00 pm with non-stop programming throughout the day.  The event is open to the public and free of charge!

For those unfamiliar with LexFUN!, it is the place young families turn to when they have their first child, when they move to Lexington or when they want to become more connected to the local five-and-under community.

LexFUN! invites you to come to its Open House and see what LexFUN! has to offer you and your family. Parents can learn about all of LexFUN!’s social and recreational events, such as its weekly Drop in Center, WinterFun!, Playgroups, Halloween Parade, Barn Babies Petting Zoo, and Moms Nights Out. They can learn about LexFUN!’s educational programs, such as its seminar series on parenting skills, nutrition and preparing for kindergarten. Parents can also see first-hand the various charitable programs LexFUN! engages in with our young children and their families, such as Cradles to Crayons, food drives, and visiting local seniors.

While parents learn about LexFUN!, children can enjoy our non-stop entertainment from 10 am to 5 pm. No matter what time you stop by, something fun will be going on!  Older school-aged siblings will also enjoy the entertainment.
