JULY 2014 

Greetings to our friends and supporters,       


Summer is upon us and it's heating up!  July 1st at Kids First brings the start up of a new round of our support group for kids entering grades 1-3 (Group I).  The next session for kids will be starting in September, so don't delay!


Our summer fundraising event will feature 10 runners who are participating in the TDBeach to Beacon 10k Road Race on August 2, and raising a minimum of $500 each for Kids First.  If you want to see who they are, help them meet their goal or simply make a donation to the Kids First Team as a whole, check them out here!  Kids First Runners


We hope you are enjoying a wonderful and safe summer season so far.  Read our feature article for some great ideas on how to do that!


Warmest wishes,

Peg Libby 

Executive Director

Portland, Maine: 50 Things to Do With Kids Before They Grow Up 


By Amanda of SouleMama

Having grown up and lived most of my life in the Portland, Maine area, I have a special kind of hometown love for this coastal spot. But seeing the area with the new eyes of my children makes me fall in love with it even more with each changing season. While the city itself provides plenty of arts and cultural entertainment for us, the access to the ocean, lakes, mountains, and rivers give it just the right balance we love.
