About The Publisher: Cheryl Lachendro

Greetings my Dear Macaroni Kid Friends,

I am honored to be your North Shore Macaroni Kid publisher! I come to you having published Macaroni Kid Burlington MA and Macaroni Kid Wakefield MA for the past two and a half years.

II am currently living in Georgetown, MA with my wonderfully supportive husband Kevin, 11-year-old son Kyle. My 27 year old daughter was just married so I now have a wonderful son-in-law.

I have been battling Breast Cancer since June of 2021. After multiple surgeries, and chemotherapy I am heading into my last phase of treatment, radiation. I am happy to report that I am Cancer free. All treatment moving forward is to assure the Cancer does not come back. In many ways Cancer has been a gift. The relationships I have made, the support that I have been given and realizing how really strong I am has been such a blessing as I move into the next decade of my life.

I spent close to 20 years teaching elementary school before becoming a "Stay at Home Mom". Now I am volunteering my time on the Georgetown School Committee, as a PTA board member, and room parent. Here is a little bit more about me:

πŸ‘¨‍πŸ‘©‍πŸ‘¦‍πŸ‘¦ My husband Kevin and I have been married for almost 18 years and have a 27 year old daughter Caroline and a 11 year old son Kyle.

🏑 We live in Georgetown MA

πŸ“š I taught in the Georgetown Public Schools before having my son.

🚴🏼‍♀️ I taught aerobics and Spinning™ before my son was born.

🌎 I volunteer as a school committee member and with various school organizations.

🏰 We are true Disney fanatics! We love everything DISNEY!

🌊 The beach and ocean are my happy place! So lucky to have it right in my back yard.

πŸ’ ⚾️πŸ₯πŸ₯… I am my sports minded son's greatest fan. I love to watch him play and be active!

πŸ‘©πŸ»‍ I love to socialize, although at one time in my life I was very shy.

πŸ‘πŸΌ It is important to me to make a difference in my community, look at life with a "glass half full" mentality, and help others to smile and be happy!

I joined the Macaroni Kid Family in 2018, when I took over as publisher of Macaroni Kid Burlington, covering the towns of Burlington, Wilmington, Winchester, and Woburn. When the opportunity arose to take over Macaroni Kid Wakefield, I was thrilled!

As a family, we love to travel and be out and about whenever we can. I am so excited to be able to bring my love for researching family fun activities, passion for kids, and enthusiasm for sharing ideas through Macaroni Kid.

 I not only aim to bring you the most comprehensive family calendar in the area, but  Macaroni Kid North Shore will provide you with a variety of articles, columns, giveaways & more, to help you navigate this crazy thing we call parenting.
