FAN Events Calendar 

FAN organizes many fun events geared towards young children and families.  Some of our events showcase local children's entertainment, some help us celebrate holidays, and some are for just for parents. We also collaborate with other community organizations to produce several events that teach our children the importance of giving to others and allow us to connect with our community in meaningful ways.

    Hello FAN Families, 

    Every year, FAN makes a donation to Winchester Got Lunch (WGL), and we are aiming to do the same this year!  

    WGL is a program that provides healthy lunch foods during the summer for Winchester students who may rely on subsidized school-year lunches or who are nutritionally challenged due to unforeseen circumstances. WGL is volunteer-run and relies solely on donations--all proceeds go directly to purchase food for kids. More than 25,000 lunches have been provided by WGL since we began in 2012.

    FAN is going to be hosting a table at the Farmer's Market on Saturday October 19th to raise money for WGL. But we need the help of the FAN community to donate baked goods and to man the table. It doesn't matter if you want to make something from scratch or buy something to donate--all contributions are welcome! (We only ask that you provide an ingredient list, so that we can answer any questions for families with food allergies or sensitivities.

    One hundred percent of the money raised will be donated to WGL. 

    Please take a moment to look at the signup list (!/showSignUp/20f0d49a5a722a1f49-fanbake/88951153and consider donating your time and/or baked items. We can't do this without the participation and generosity of the FAN Community! :)  

    Any donations should be brought to the Common (where the Farmer's Market takes place) by 8:15 am on October 19th, so that we can prepare and price the items.

    Thank you in advance!--the FAN Community Events Team
