Hello KES Families,
I hope you are having a wonderful summer! Just a couple of things I want to let you know about!
This coming week the folks from Congdon’s Doughnuts on Rt. 1 in Wells, Maine are supporting KEPTA’s proposal to build the most inclusive playground in our region.
Every night throughout the summer the parking lot at Congdon’s is transformed into a food truck festival known as “Congdon’s After Dark.” Because Congdon’s has a mission of supporting groups and organizations that help those in need and make the world a better place, each Tuesday at Congdon’s After Dark is known as “Tithing Tuesday,” where proceeds from the event support different philanthropic initiatives.
On Tuesday, July 9, 2019, the “Tithing Tuesday” event from 4:00pm to 9:00pm at Congdon’s will support the Kennebunk Elementary School Parent Teacher Association (KEPTA) in building a new totally adaptive and inclusive playground for our region, to be located on Alewive Rd. at Kennebunk Elementary School.
At this “perfect for summertime” food truck festival, dinner for your family will support equitable play for children with special needs and physical challenges. 10% of the cost for all entrees will support the playground proposal, and the following local restaurants will be participating:
Musette, Nom Bai, Burrito Bettys, Blue Mermaid, Motha Trucka, MacDaddys, Knew Potato, Caboose, Big Grandpa’s Grill and of course, Congdon’s Doughnuts.
In the event of inclement weather, the rain date will be the next evening, Wednesday, July 10th. See the Congdons After Dark website for cancellations, and visit www.kbkplayground.org for more information on KEPTA’s playground proposal and to donate. We look forward to seeing you at Congdon’s After Dark!
Also, on a different but related note, we will have another Bottle Drive on July 13th to support the playground. It will run from 11:00am to 3:00pm location TBA ...so please save those 4th of July bottles!
And finally, you have two weeks left to look for missing items of clothing in the KES Lost and Found ...As always we will be donating the clothing to the Kennebunk Cares Closet.
