A quick guide to help you get the most out of your newsletter!

Welcome new subscribers! Here's a quick guide to help you make the most of this website and newsletter.

The white bar on the left side of the page is the table of contents for this week. You can jump to any of the articles or the events listings by clicking in there and you will still be in the current issue.

If you would like to look back at previous issues, scroll down a bit until you see "Past Riverhead News" in the side bar on the left. This is below the Facebook and Twitter icons. You will go to a list of dates and you can choose which newsletter to look at. Click the Macaroni Kid logo at the top of the site to come back to the current newsletter.

If you ever need to change your email address, you can hit reply on any newsletter and send me your new email address and I can change it for you.

There are several national newsletters available (Family Travel, National Newsletter, Macaroni Kid Eats, Military Families, Safety Announcements, Family Fitness etc.) and you can change your subscription preferences any time by re-entering your information in the subscribe form, as long as you use the same email address as the original subscription. (If you need to change the newsletter subscriptions AND email address, you can reply to the newsletter for all.) FYI If I entered your information, you are only subscribed to the local Riverhead newsletter.

The pink "My Macaroni" button that appears above the contents list is my favorite feature! You can click the plus sign (Add to My Macaroni) under any event listing and after you've selected all of the events that you are interested in, you can click the "My Macaroni" button and it will show your list, then you can download everything to a .pdf that you can save and/or print to take with you! Then you'll have all the details right at hand when you're on the road or you can give them to your child's
babysitter/nanny/grandparent/caregiver!

Support our sponsors. Sponsors make it possible for me to offer this free service to you. Each local ad is approved and added to the page by me, so I can assure you that they are safe to click through. Likewise, all national ads are approved by the home office. Of course any transactions between you and the advertiser are the responsibility of the two parties involved and not myself or Macaroni Kid.

Comment on things you like or send me an email by replying to the newsletter so I know what kinds of things you like to read about! If you have any suggestions for articles, let me know!

We have a Teen Section to keep the older kids busy too . Our Plan Ahead section will keep you organized for weeks ahead!

Not All the Good Stuff is Up Here!  Don't forget to scroll down to the bottom of the newsletter where you can often find craft ideas, recipes and other great articles!  Due to a large number of events in one week, the newsletter may be clipped short in your emailed newsletter.  Click through to the website to see more great events and the remainder of your newsletter content!
