4th Graders Free National Park Admissions

We did this deal this past year with my 4th grader.  Only made it 2 parks, but saved us some money.

To help engage and create our next generation of park visitors, supporters and advocates, we are kicking off the Every Kid in a Park initiative. The immediate goal is to provide an opportunity for each and every 4th grade student across the country to experience their public lands and waters in person throughout the 2015-2016 school year.

Beginning September 1st you will have access to your own Every Kid in a Park pass. This pass will give you free access to national parks, national forests, national wildlife refuges, and more!

The Every Kid in a Park pass is available now and will be good for the 2016-2017 school year until August 31, 2017.

Facebook Privacy Setting


Do you see a lot of posts on your FB page for people you don't know?  Do you have a friend that shares a lot of posts?  Tired of seeing all of the quizzes people take?  Did you know you can block it from showing up on your page in the future?

If you click on the down arrow at the top of the post,  you can "Hide All" from that group/person/page etc.  If you unfollow the friend, you won't see their posts on your News Feed unless you search it out.  If you "Hide All from ...", then you won't see from that app anymore, but you will still see your friend's other posts.


Do you know why those things show up on your page?  It's because they have a public setting.  If you have a public setting on your posts, then anyone on FB can see it.  If someone "likes" or comments on your post, it could show up on THEIR friends New Feeds.   I suggest for your personal posts, you change your privacy setting to Friends.  Click on the lock icon in the top right corner to change your settings.

Shearer’s – Discounted pretzels & chips at their factory in Brewster

Dairy Dock – Smith Dairy dock near the main fire station.  You can get ½ gallons & other various novelty items significantly less.  They might be slightly damaged.  I think they are open Mon, Tues, Thurs, Fri now

Nickels Bakery Thrift Stores – 21 South of 30 & 807 Spruce Wooster. Nickels Thrift stores are a great place to get incredible deals on breads, buns, & dinner rolls.  You don’t always know what you will find, but often you can get a loaf of bread for $1.  In the Entertainment book there is a coupon for up to $5 off, so if you buy $10 worth of food, it will cost you $5.  They also have reward cards that you can get stamped & earn a free item.
