As the Local Area Representative for Go Au Pair in the Providence and surrounding areas, I have the wonderful job of planning fun and adventurous cultural and social activities for our local au pairs and host families.
Go Au Pair is not rated the #1 Au Pair Agency of 2013 by aupairclearinghouse.com for no reason!
The Red Tricycle 2013 Totally Awesome Awards aren’t recognizing Go Au Pair as the only Au Pair Agency finalist in 6 cities for nothing!
We are awesome and we want you to be a part of the Go Au Pair family!
Please get out your calendars and see which of the following events you may be able to attend. It promises to be family fun and free or low cost, since I am a mom of six and sometimes the kids come along for some cultural exchange too!
Okay, now that you have your calendars, here are my next three cultural or social events from hiking next weekend to a fiery night in the Renaissance City to the happiest 5K on the planet!
Purgatory Chasm State Reservation – Saturday, August 17, 2013 at 2pm
Come explore the beauty of a New England forest and hike the Chasm!
A unique natural landmark, Purgatory Chasm runs for a quarter of a mile between granite walls rising as high as 70 feet. Popular with picnickers and rock-climbers alike, the Chasm is believed to have its origin in the sudden release of dammed-up glacial meltwater near the end of the last Ice Age, approximately 14,000 years ago.
Trails lead to a wide variety of rock formations, with such romantic names as The Corn Crib, The Coffin, The Pulpit, Lovers’ Leap and Fat Man’s Misery.
An adventurous playground, equipped with a play structure, swings and a merry-go-round, is now located near the visitor center.
Please be aware chasm rocks and slopes are slippery and deceiving. Wear rubber soled shoes or hiking boots. Please stay away from the edges of the chasm. It is not recommended to hike the chasm after or during inclement weather due to extremely slippery rocks.
Well behaved dogs are welcome, but must be leashed at all times.
Let’s meet at 2pm (have a good lunch at home and bring light snacks) and spend a couple of hours exploring the forest trails.
If you can’t make such short notice, or hiking isn’t your thing, maybe you can join us for a night on the town!
Providence WaterFire – Saturday, September 28, 2013 at 6:30pm
Admission to the event is free.
Plan on parking at Providence Place Mall.
The Color Run™, also known as the Happiest 5k on the Planet, is a unique paint race that celebrates healthiness, happiness, individuality, and giving back to the community. Although not a charity event, a charity partner is chosen in each city; this year’s charity partner is Partners for Providence Parks.
As always, please contact me with your questions or concerns at firstname.lastname@example.org or 401.309.1925 anytime!
