Dessert Host Needed for the MYSTERY DINNER, October 19th 

Desperately Seeking a Dessert Host for the Mystery Dinner. This is a fantastic evening filled with delicious food and wonderful company and a great way to support the Ward School PTO. The evening will begin at one home for all to enjoy appetizers. It is here that the mystery will be revealed and you will receive the theme and location of your Ward School host's home. After dinner, everyone will reconvene at yet another Ward School host's home for dessert. We are also looking for one or two more hosts for dinner.


Please contact Jessie Gilmartin at or (617) 281-4535 to volunteer to host or for more information. Look for your invitation in your child's take home folder in the coming weeks.
