A Little Change from the Bottom Up

WHAM! Parents organized a meet-up-and-clean-up at the Hampden Elementary/Middle School playground on Saturday morning. At about 10:00 a.m. we put on some gloves and set to picking cigarette butts and Hershey kisses tags from the grass like chimps picking nits from their babies’ fur. Our principal – who was right there with us on what turned out to be a gorgeous weekend morning – coined a term for our crew. She calls us “the Pre-T.O.”

My souvenirs: rainbow-glittered spin art and a lucky penny. Sweet.

If you’re interested in learning more about WHAM! Parents, stay tuned. A little website is in the works.

UPDATE! On September 10, 2011, just in time for Hampdenfest, the Wham! Parent Co-op website was born! Click to welcome it into the World (Wide Web).
