PACC – Royal Court Ribbon Cutting
July 20, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Please join us for a fun time celebrating the opening of The Royal Court – The Boutique for Young Royals!
“The Royal Court is not just a retail environment but it is a space where as soon as the child enters they are treated as royalty. They are greeted as a Princess or Prince, given a crown, and called “Your Majesty, My Lady, Sir, etc.” This is not about a Disney Princess or Prince. This is about them! They are engaged with the full experience that acknowledges that they have entered space, especially for them. This will occur whether or not a purchase is made. There will be interactive sections to take part in such as The Royal Library, with books and seating. The Royal Spa, where self-care, hygiene, and mental health are encouraged. The Royal Garden, where nature is explored includes gardening, farming, zoology, Eco-Friendly practices, and Healthy Planet choices are encouraged. The Royal Theatre features an array of healthy age-appropriate entertainment from dance, mime, music, puppetry, dress-up, role-play, acting, and comedy. The Royal Kitchen features activities and products that support healthy food choices, home safety, table etiquette, manners, and teamwork. The main goal is that at the end of the visit to The Royal Court that each child will feel as though they have been seen, heard, and known to be a uniquely created person with a wide variety of potential and interests. It is widely said, “It takes a village”. I believe IT TAKES A KINGDOM.
As adults, we are builders in the most precious of legacies we have to offer the future. We can be either one of two bricks in the building process. We can be solid foundational bricks or we can be bricks made of sand that will not stand the test of time. I choose to be a solid foundational brick and The Royal Court is where my vision and passion are hoping to lay some of those solid bricks.
In addition to all of the above, I am actively involved with The Gifted Crate, a local community service serving Foster Care families in Massachusetts. We run The Heritage Pop-Up Shop, an outreach of the Gifted Crate, that provides free, newly purchased clothing to foster families. We provide a forum where they can request clothing and accessories or come to a pop-up event location and shop for free. This has been a wonderful service but unfortunately, without a central location, our outreach is limited to a few events yearly when the need is much greater. The Royal Court would serve a dual purpose. The front end is retail and interaction and a back end is a storage place and a hub for foster families to acquire the clothing they need. So, instead of being available a few times a year, The Royal Court would make the availability 6 days a week and exponentially increase our scope and outreach. This would be a win-win for our foster care families and community.” – Tanya Hargat, Owner of The Royal Court
