Brown County Bridal Tour

A new kind of Bridal Show, one where you actually visit venues and experience what your big day will feel like. Come on out to some of the most popular wedding locations in Brown County, and meet with local vendors who specialize in Brown County weddings.

Most bridal shows present a booth to booth experience, walking through crowds to multiple tables of fliers. While the Brown County Bridal Tour will offer the same benefits of meeting with different vendors, we are hoping to provide a more hands on, one on one experience. You will actually be able to go into popular venues in the area, and see what each atmosphere is like, and if it is right for you. Our goal is to help you experience a preview of the magic of Brown County weddings.

Tickets – $8-presale, $10-at the door

Fall Family Fun Night!

The Waldron Elementary PTO invites you to the annual “Fall Family Fun Night” on November 2, 2013. There will be a chili supper, carnival games, dunk tanks, a silent auction – Fun for the whole family!

All proceeds will go toward maintaining various programs provided by the PTO for the children.  These include our fluoride program, accelerated reader program, field trips, general support for the classrooms, and our main goal this year is updating technology for the classrooms.

The PTO supplements funds that are not given by the state.  We purchase iPads for the classrooms, give each teacher money to purchase things that they need for their classroom, pay for most of the field trip fees so that they are affordable for each student, pay for class parties, and several other things throughout the year. The donations we get go a long way for us to help give each child a great experience in school to treasure for a lifetime.

For more information, or to donate to the silent auction, contact Shannon Coon.

End: November 2, 2013 8:00 pm
