If you don't live in Williamsburg/Greenpoint you may not know about Town Square (don't stop reading if you live in another neighborhood!!), but I wish every neighborhood had an organization like them! Civic minded, community building, information AND pure fun creators.
There are two events that you NEED to know about no matter where you live:
NYC PTA EXPO
If you are a PTA member or officer in any neighborhood or you are an organization that wants to offer your advice or services to PTAs you need to attend this event on
Sunday, Oct. 5, 2014 12 noon- 5pm
@ PS 250 George H. Lindsay Elementary 180 Montrose Ave. Williamsburg
STOP reinventing the wheel. Share information and best practices. Build community across zones and districts. This is a no brainer. There is strength and knowledge out there. This is your opportunity to share it! Just look at the workshops. You need this info.
Spread the news. Really, you guys all need this.
The other events that I love are their Baby Fest on Nov. 1, and of course School Fest which is scheduled for Sat. Feb. 7, 2015.
