Note from the Publisher


By Mary Ann Hanlon, Publisher Mom, Macaroni Kid Easthampton/South Hadley/Southampton, Macaroni Kid Amherst/Northampton, and Macaroni Kid Deerfield/Greenfield June 7, 2021

It has been a long time since I've written a Note From Publisher.  Like many of you, it seems like I'm so busy all the time.  Now is the time to update you on goings-on!

In addition to MacKid, I also own a retail store that is in the process of relocating before the end of July - if you've moved your house, imagine that 10x; that's what moving a retail space is like.  Crazy, right?

As of late, our family has also been dealing with a number of medical issues with our son.  It's been hard to get insurance to cover the necessary services - phone calls, e-mails, it's like another full-time job.  If anyone else has had to do this, I sympathize.

All that being said, I apologize for the minimal events on the calendar - I have been sharing lots of events on our Facebook Page so if you've missed anything, be sure to follow on Facebook and check out the Events page.
