October 2016 - Halloween Party
It was a spookily fun afternoon celebrating Halloween at the Scout House! Kids played Halloween-themed games, got their faces painted, decorated pumpkins, ate cupcakes and ended the afternoon with a costume parade! Thanks to everyone who came out to join us!
October 2016 - Fall Family Festival
We had a great time playing at the Ripley Playscape with many other Concord organizations. CFN organized a Fire Truck Wash in partnership with the Concord Fire Department. The truck sure looked shiny when the kids were done with it! Attendees enjoyed all the other activities at the Playscape including Reasons to be Cheerful ice cream, crafts and games.
September 2016 - Moms' Night Out, Pure Barre West Concord
CFN enjoyed a great Moms' Night Out at Pure Barre in West Concord. We sweated through our workout, then relaxed with some drinks and shopping! A huge thank you to Pure Barre West Concord for hosting us!
September 2016 - Great Meadows Walk
CFN families enjoyed a nature walk through Great Meadows National Wildlife Refuge guided by Ranger Tim. We had fun examining the different textures and shades of green found in nature and got to discover the many ways plants spread their seeds. Parents and kids all had fun and learned some important lessons like "leaves of three, let them be" (poison ivy) and don't touch the "Velcro plant" or you will be picking seeds off your clothes for days.
August 2016 - Butterfly Place, Westford
Seven CFN families gathered at the Butterfly Place to enjoy the flitting of the butterflies and a picnic lunch after! Younger CFN attendees were a bit apprehensive, but our older attendees were thrilled at the prospect of having butterflies land on them and practiced extreme patience as they sat still and pretended to be flowers.

14 CFN families enjoyed a beautiful day of blueberry picking at Honey Pot Hill in Stow, MA last week. The kids enjoying picking blueberries, feeding the goats, and eating delicious cider donuts!!
June 2016 - Strawberry Picking, Verrill Farm
Last week CFN members enjoyed a gorgeous day of strawberry picking at Verrill Farm! We picked, we ate, we ran through the fields, and then we enjoyed treats in the farm stand. A perfect morning.
