Time to Clay is coming to Tyngsboro to hold the Fundraiser for SEPAC to benefit Tyngsboro Public School's Special Education. Since this event is close to the holidays, we came up with different gift ideas for the kids to paint. There will also be ideas for the plain plates, bowls, etc like there is at Time to Clay. There will be THS students there to help the kids with their painting so the adults can paint too. If you know of a THS student who would like to volunteer, please contact Amy Jane Maciel, Tyngsboro SEPAC Chair at ajmaciel@comcast.net as soon as possible.

This is a VERY important Fundraiser for SEPAC and TPS Special Education. Our past two Fundraisers were not not successful.
