A local family-oriented newsletter celebrated its fourth anniversary this month.
Started in April, 2009, Macaroni Kid provides families in the Snoqualmie Valley, Issaquah and Sammamish areas with a full listing of family-friendly events and activities to entertain, stimulate and exhaust their children.
“Four years ago, when I started Snoqualmie Valley-Issaquah Macaroni Kid, I knew it would take off!” said Diana Reul-Shapiro, the publisher and editor of Macaroni Kid Snoqualmie Valley-Issaquah. I was already searching here and there for events and activities to e-mail my friends, and then I thought, why not do this for all local parents.”
Snoqualmie Valley-Issaquah Macaroni Kid is the hard work of two local moms, Diana Reul-Shapiro from Snoqualmie and Dana Verhoff from Fall City.
They reach parents in Snoqualmie, North Bend, Issaquah, Sammamish, Fall City and beyond. In addition to publishing a large local family-friendly events calendar, Macaroni Kid offers articles on parenting, education, product reviews, crafts and recipes. Combined with their Facebook and Twitter followers, Macaroni Kid has quickly grown into the place that keeps families “in the know” about the area’s events, venues and businesses.
