What a great night!

The ECLC’s Pizza Party was a great Success.  178 people feasted on pizza and had balloon fun with the “Balloon Lady”.

Many people signed up for the PTA (Yay!). We also all had a chance to look over, touch and smell all the great products in our Close Buy fundraiser on loan to have for display.

Everyone seemed to go home with full bellies and smiles on their faces! Thank you to all who came out to support our school and to those that played a part in making it happen.

Here are some pictures from the evening.

Enjoy:

Close Buy 2013 Fall Fundraiser

BARRINGTON-WEB (1)The Fall Fundraiser is here and it rocks!

We are very excited to be participating with a local company called “Close Buy” for a New England-made Fall Fundraiser.  The have a great catalog full of local, high quality, healthy delicious, beautiful and useful products that people actually WANT!   Check it out here : Catalog

Close Buy was started by a local Mom in Portland, Maine who was tired of buying wrapping paper she didn’t want. “I thought, I want to support his school, but don’t really want any of this stuff,” she recalls. Not wanting to purchase “crap” any longer or feel the need to hawk  it  on to friends and relatives she went to local vendors and  artists and created Close Buy.

It has been met with amazing success, and no wonder! The catalog is brimming with great products you desire and with your purchase you support not just your school, but local vendors.  Consider your holiday shopping done! Another great benefit from this fundraiser is how easy it is for friends and relatives that live far away to participate, they can order online and have their items shipped directly to them.
