Get Ready for the 14th Annual Lantern Festival
The 14th Annual Lantern Festival will take place at the AEA Elementary School on Saturday,
November 7th, 2015 from 4-7 pm.
Please join us for a bratwurst dinner, bake sale, and music. The event will end with a Lantern Parade around the neighborhood.
Students in grades K-4 will be crafting Lanterns with their German teachers. If you have a younger or older child that is interested
in making a Lantern to carry for the walk, please visit this
Lantern Crafting website for ideas and templates. Sticks and lights for the
Lanterns will be available for purchase at the event.
In order for the event to be successful, each year we need lots of volunteers. Please go to
to see the list of available opportunities and sign-up. If you prefer not to sign-up online, or would like more
information about volunteering, feel free to email our event organizers, Jennifer Cardinale and Angie Santini directly at

Golftoberfest Was Amazing - THANK YOU!!!!
We wanted to take a moment to thank everybody for coming out on a hot Sunday afternoon, giving your time, your dollars, your
energy, and your support to help make a difference. We greatly, greatly appreciate it.
Pictures from the event
We certainly do not want to preach to the choir on how important physical education is to the young students of today.
If evidence is needed, we can look at concerning health outcomes like diabetes, obesity, and cardovascular disease. Please
remember, that your efforts on Sunday ultimately are designed to help make a difference and lessen the likelihood these
lifestyle diseases will effect anymore lives.
We raised over $1,600 for the Fusion PE program This simply could not have been done without the particpants AND the sponsors!!!
Thank you both!!!!
We look forward to next year's Golftoberfest, so spread the word so that we can grow the event in sponsors AND particpants.
A sustainable event that will help support the finest physical education teachers ever, our young students, and change the
trends of these concerning outcomes. Till then...fairways and greens : )
