Publisher's Corner. Welcome Back Summer Fun!

By Melissa Shrader Editor Publisher Loveland Macaroni Kid July 5, 2021


Summer is underway and there is so much to do! I'm putting events in as fast as I can. We, like everyone else, are trying to catch up on some much-needed social interaction and getting out to celebrate holidays and just summer like we couldn't do last year. 

There always seems to be a bit of confusion on "To Mask or Not To Mask". The guidelines are basically to have unvaccinated adults and kids under 11 still wearing a mask. However, some places still require masks no matter what like health care facilities. Some businesses still require masks to enter the building and masks can be removed when seated. Still, others are not requiring masks at all. I've taken to just bringing a mask along "just in case" for my husband, my daughter is 11 so she wears a mask and I'm wearing one so she doesn't feel left out. 

If you are looking for more fun this summer check out the calendar and guides! There are so many things to do it's hard to choose! 

If you have an event you want to submit please feel free to. The submitted events come to me to be approved and uploaded to the calendar. Any family, kids, date night, parents' night out, etc are welcome! Just make sure that the event is open to the public. 

I'm so ready for fun! Aren't you?

What are we up to?

With the lift of the Mask Mandate, we have seen a jump in events! Yay! Keep in mind that each event has its own rules and guidelines for attendance. As things change with the CDC COVID guidelines and local guidelines events may still be canceled or changed to meet those guidelines. Keep an eye out I will be adding events as quickly as possible. However, If you know of an event or have an event you want to add please feel free to do so. I get notifications of events to approve before they post.

 Post it on our calendar at

Don't forget to check out Facebook too for other events that have been popping up randomly since the State has changed the Stay at home quarantine to the Safer at home guideline.

If you have other things you want to see Mac Kid do drop me an email. 

If you want to partner with Mac Kid I'd love to hear from you.

Remember with any event, If the weather looks questionable, - Always check in with the event itself to be sure the event is still on! You can email me as well. ESPECIALLY IN SPRING AND FALL. Now that COVID has come please comply with the COVID guidelines requested by each establishment and organizer. If you have a question about their policies please contact them directly. COVID Guidelines change regularly too so be sure to make sure that an event is still compliant and that it is not canceled.  We will update events regularly however we can't catch everything. 

If you have the newsletter you only have part of the fun! I post on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram with holiday and everyday crafts, recipes, special offers, contests, news, and new events. (see the tabs on the right or at the bottom to visit the social site) 

Stay safe, Stay healthy, Love, Live and Be Fierce for what you believe,
