Northborough – Celebrating Mother’s Day began early for some Northborough families. The sixth annual Mother-Daughter Tea Party took place May 12 at the Algonquin Regional High School (ARHS) cafeteria. Proceeds from the afternoon fundraiser go to the Northborough Education Foundation (NEF).
Many daughters wore princess attire. Some mothers were escorted by formally-dressed sons. The intergenerational guests enjoyed sandwiches, desserts, snacks and beverages. Deejay Michael Rutkowski kept guests dancing in between leading games and contests with prizes. Special guests were Princess Anna and Queen Elsa of the Disney film “Frozen.”
Helping with the buffet, crafts and other activities were volunteers from Young Neighbors in Action of the St. Rose of Lima Parish youth ministry and ARHS students. A raffle with several prizes including an American Girl doll raised additional funds.
NEF provides funds for programs not covered by the school budget. In 2017, NEF awarded $36,075 in school grants. For more information, visit northboroughed.org and on Facebook at facebook.com/northboroughed.
