Doodle Bugs! Friday Five

The Doodle Community is buzzing with news & events. Here’s what has been going on and what we have coming up:

1) We love to celebrate our community helpers! In honor of Monday, February 4th being “Thank A Mailman Day,” teachers and children will create cards for the special delivery men and women that visit the center each day. This event will be held at our Penfield, Clarence and Henrietta locations only. 211201_420847967993769_318138429_n

2) Our Lancaster center will be facilitating a fundraiser entitled “Pennies For Polar Bears” beginning on Monday, February 4th and concluding on Friday, February 22nd. They will be collecting pennies and donating all of the proceeds to the Buffalo Zoo’s polar bear program to support and help our furry friends!

3) Happy New Year! In celebration of this traditional Chinese holiday (which begins February 10th and is typically celebrated for fifteen days!) we’re proud to announce our annual parade on February 11th. To honor 2013 as the Year of the Snake, we’ll parade through the center with our lanterns, led by a unique hand-made float. Of course, we’ll also spend time learning about the origins of this unique celebration.

4) Attention Faculty: Join our Doodle Bugs! Faculty Page and then enter to win Buffalo Sabres tickets by “liking” our Contest Post. The first drawing will be on Monday, February 4th!

5) If you are the owner or manager of a business and would like to feature a special promotion on our Facebook page, please e-mail leia.daigler@doodlebugs.com for more information!
