Newburyport News in Brief

‘Thank You Club’ kickoff party

Greetings by Design owner, Deb Green has created “The Thank You Club” and is inviting children and their parents to participate. The Thank You Club has incentives to reward children for their thoughtfulness and it works like this: children write a thank-you note for a gift, a party or whatever the occasion might be. Their parent records each note that their child sends on the membership card which can be picked up at Greetings by Design, 1R Water St. Once 10 cards or notes have been sent, children can claim their reward by bringing their card to Greetings by Design. Once validated, they will receive a gift card of their choice to New England Ice Lollies, 9 Liberty St., or one other participating Newburyport business.

A Thank You Club kick-off party will be held on Saturday, June 14, from noon to 4 p.m. when Diana Soares of Arty Party is offering a complimentary class to help children express their creativity. At the Arty Party, children will learn how to create their own note card. For more information, call Deb Green at 978-225-6700.
