We joined the Acton Family Network just before moving to town hoping that it would be a good way to meet people and help us explore our new area. It did not di...sappoint! We have met some wonderful people, made fast friends, and become very active in the AFN community. With activities planned during the week and on weekends, parents' nights out, member exclusive events, and more, AFN is sure to provide something for every member of your family. See More

We have been members of the AFN since moving to town in 2012, and it has since become our favorite resource in town for activities, information and special even...ts. We attend multiple events each month of the year and are so grateful for the opportunities and people that the AFN has brought to our family. See More

Joining AFN was the best decision we made when we moved to Boxborough in 2011! It has been a great way to meet other families in the area and to learn about the... resources available in our community. We love going to monthly Community Service events, Story Hours, Craft Hours and more! I am so grateful that we found AFN! See More

The Acton Family Network has helped us meet other families in town and has introduced us to many new kids activities and places to play. It's also a great resource for information, everything from finding a dentist to navigation the kindergarten selection process.
