My husband and I moved to Boxborough in 2007 and although we immediately loved the area, we found it hard to meet people at first. That changed after we joined the Acton-Boxborough Family Network following the 2011 birth of our daughter Catelyn (little sis Ella joined the fun in 2013). ABFN is a great way to meet other young families with similar interests and schedules. We’ve all made some wonderful friends, particularly through our weekly ABFN playgroup. I love checking the ABFN calendar to see what new adventures await: Story Hour, Community Service projects, outings, etc. I enjoy working on the Public Events committee and helping plan the Summer BBQ, Halloween Party, and Valentine’s Day party — it’s such a thrill to see ABFN members having fun and connecting at these events.
