Marisa Heisey of East Lampeter wins Royer’s Kids Club birthday card design contest

Marisa Heisey still has a newspaper article on her bulletin board about winning the Royer’s Kids Club back-to-school coloring contest in 2011.

Six years later, she’s going to need another thumbtack.

Marisa, who is entering seventh grade at Gerald G. Huesken Middle School in the Conestoga Valley School District, won this year’s edition of the Royer’s Kids Club birthday card design contest.

Her design will be featured on the electronic card that Royer’s Kids Club members will receive on their birthdays in the coming year. Her prize is a free flower delivery on her birthday.

Marisa is the daughter of Nevin and Joy Heisey, East Lampeter Township. The couple’s son, Alex, won the kids club birthday card contest in 2010.

The Royer’s Kids Club is free to ages 5 to 12. With parental permission, children may register for the kids club online or at any Royer’s store. Kids club benefits include a membership card, online activities, quarterly e-mail newsletter, contests and in-store events.

Kicking off a new year of Royer’s Kids Club events

Love was in the air — and many children were in our stores — on Jan. 21 for the first of five Royer’s Kids Club events in 2017. Children ages 5 to 12 made a special “Be Mine, Valentine!” arrangement and received free balloons, as you can see in the photos below.

If you joined us, thank you for taking the time. If you missed out, please note that we have events scheduled for March 25, June 17, Sept. 9 and Nov. 11.

A boo-tiful time at our final kids club event of 2016

Thank you to everyone who joined us for Saturday’s Royer’s Kids Club event, our final one of the year.

As you can see from these photos, we had a boo-tiful time celebrating Halloween and promoting our annual children’s book drive, Bouquets for Books.

Head of the class: photos from our back-to-school kids club event

Judging from these beautiful, smiling faces at Royer’s Kids Club’s back-to-school event on Aug. 22, these children are rested and ready for a challenging and rewarding new school year.

Thanks to all of the participants. We wish you the very best and encourage you to use every day as an opportunity to learn something new.

Meanwhile, we hope you’ll set aside time on Oct. 31 for our fifth and final kids club event of 2015. It’ll be Halloween, so be sure to wear your costume as we celebrate the holiday. It’s also the kick off our 10th annual “Bouquets for Books” children’s book drive to benefit area public libraries.

We look forward to seeing you then!

 

Photos from another egg-cellent kids club event

Things really got hopping at our March 14 Royer’s Kids Club event, as evidenced by these photos from our West York store.

We had a great turnout as the kids made carnation Easter bunnies.

We certainly had a terrific time, and we look forward to more fun down the bunny trail as we have three more kids club events this year:

  • June 20: Help us kick off our annual food drive, “Royer’s Stems Hunger,” and enter our kids club birthday card design contest.
  • Aug. 22: Summer vacation is coming to an end, so we’re going to help ease you back to school.
  • Oct. 31: It’s Halloween, so be sure to wear your costume as we celebrate the holiday and kick off our annual “Bouquets for Books” children’s book drive to benefit area public libraries.

We’ll share more details closer to each event, of course.

In the meantime, we wish you and your family a Happy Easter!

Thanks for coming; we’ll see you at the next kids club event on March 14

Thanks to everyone who joined us on Jan. 17 as we kicked off the 2015 Royer’s Kids Club schedule.

The first event comes at a particularly good time, bringing color back into our lives in the middle of winter. Spring and warmer temperatures aren’t that far away after all!

We look forward to seeing you at the next free kids club event on March 14. Click here for the full schedule.

Save the date: final 2014 Royer’s Kids Club event is Nov. 1

Thanks to everyone who joined us on Aug. 23 for our back-to-school Royer’s Kids Club event. The photos above show some of the participants at our West York store.

Not only is it hard to believe that school has resumed, but it’s also incredible to think that we have only one more kids club event in 2014.

It’s on Nov. 1, and we’ll be kicking off our annual “Bouquets for Books” book drive, which collects new children’s books for area public libraries. We’ll also be celebrating Halloween, even if it’s a day late, so participants (ages 5 to 12) will be encouraged to wear their costumes.

Be sure to mark your calendars. We’ll provide more details in the weeks ahead.

Irish eyes smile at St. Patrick’s Day kids club event

A tip o’ the cap to everyone who joined us on March 15 for our St. Patrick’s Day-themed Royer’s Kids Club event.

Each child who participated had an opportunity to decorate a white carnation by giving it a smiling face. They carnations were dropped in bud vases filled with water that was dyed green to mark the holiday. Eventually, the dye will work its way up the stem to change the color of the flower.

There’s even more fun planned as the kids club has three more events in 2014. The dates and themes:

June 21: Stems Hunger food drive

Aug. 23: Back to school

Nov. 1: Bouquets for Books book drive
