    Please join us for a book signing event on November 27th with Bill Cotter!
    Bill Cotter, a Rocky River native, has written his first children's book titled, "Don't push the button".
    There are buttons to push and buttons not to push. The button in this book should never be pushed, but let's face it -- no young reader can ever resist an authorial warning! Larry, a lovable monster, is the star of this hilarious book.
    This event is November 27th at 7:00PM at Barnes & Noble in Crocker Park.

    For those of you diligently following the Community Service Calendar that was distributed in August/September- Thank you! We really appreciate all of your generous contributions and your willingness to serve our community. However, there will be a small change/addition for the month of November. We will not be serving a Thanksgiving meal in Lorain on November 27th, as stated on the calendar. We found a service opportunity closer to home- right here in Avon Lake!

    The Avon Lake Presbyterian Church on Electric (where Cornerstone Preschool meets) will be serving a Thanksgiving lunch on Thursday, November 21st to approximately 120 residents. We are in need of 3-4 parents who could help make this event run smoothly. You would need to be there from approximately 11:00AM-1:30PM. Since they already have a team of core people who will be making and serving the meal, you (and your children if you'd like) will be providing the guests with a small treat bag and a preschooler-crafted placemat. You are welcome to mingle with the guests and help make their holiday lunch a little extra special.

    To sign up, go to:

    If you are unable to help at the meal, but would be interested in crafting with your child or children, we will be hosting a craft session at Avon Lake Public Library at 10:00AM on Tuesday, Nov 15th to assemble small treat bags, turkey table centerpieces and Thanksgiving placemats. We need 60 placemats so please come join us if your schedule allows!
    Lastly, we are calling all UNWANTED/DISLIKED/LEFTOVER HALLOWEEN CANDY! Raid your childrens' bags while they are sleeping! Bring a couple handfuls with you to the Vendor fair on Monday, Nov 11th!

    If there is no candy to be found in your house- there is one last thing you can do for your toilet paper rolls! We will need these for the centerpiece craft!

    We are excited about focusing the efforts of ALECPTA to be one of a giving, service-oriented organization!! Thank you for your part in making this happen!!

    Please let Dawn Crannis or Nicole Roth know if you have any questions about this month's service opportunity.

    A HUGE thank you to all of you that participated in our Buffalo Wild Wings "Dine-in" Fundraiser!!!!

    Our group brought in sales of $839.79!!  And BW3's was extra generous and donated 30% of the food sales (not the standard 20%) which means $251.94 come back to the ALECPTA!!!!  And did I mention how awesome BW3's is??  Because on top of giving us an extra 10% they are rounding (way) up and are donating a grand total of $350.00!!!!!

    Thank you again for all of your support and a BIG shout out to BW3's and their over the top generosity!!!
