Captain McFinn - Be A Buddy Not A Bully!

For the parents of our community, there is a great deal of concern these days about the destructive effects bullies may have on other children. Indeed, October has been designated “National Bullying Prevention Month.” Millcreek Mall shares the desire to promote more positive behavior among young people. On October 1, 2014 at 11am a formal event, sponsored by Captain McFinn and Friends, will take place in Center Court where we invite children and adults alike to sign the “Captain McFinn and Friends Bully Free Pledge”. 

The organization known as Captain McFinn and Friends has developed a program for educators known as S.H.A.R.K. Patrol. (S.H.A.R.K. is an acronym: Students Help Achieve Respect and Kindness.)   S.H.A.R.K. Patrol is a bully prevention educational program for teachers, counselors and parents to educate K-3 students on how to recognize bullying, and protect themselves and others against it. The S.H.A.R.K. Patrol materials were developed by accredited educators and are based on the principles of Positive Behavioral Supports, the complete kit provides counselors and teachers with a top-to-bottom solution for a complete bully prevention program. The Millcreek Mall will be donating a complete classroom kit to Wayne Elementary.

We would like to invite you to take part in the 3nd Annual Bully-Free Pledge Signing Event, a tradition that will be carried out for many years.  We have invited  local schools, organizations and civic leaders to join us for the occasion, where everyone will have the opportunity to make positive waves against bullying!

Theresa Caputo Book Signing at Books-A-Million

Location: Books-A-Million

Event Hours: 1pm - 3pm

Theresa Caputo, psychic medium and star of the hit TLC show, Long Island Medium, will be appearing at Books-A-Million for a book signing from 1pm to 3pm. Theresa’s second book titled “You Can’t Make This Stuff Up” is scheduled to be released September 30th, 2014. Her first book titled “There’s More to Life Than This” debuted at #2 on the NY Times Best Seller List in the fall of 2013 and both will be available for purchase at Books-A-Million. See store for additional details.


New episodes of Long Island Medium began to air August 3rd on TLC. The highly-rated show follows Theresa’s life as a typical Long Island wife and mom with one very big difference…she can communicate with the dead. Since she cannot “turn off” this gift, messages from departed loved ones can come through at any time. The local car mechanic, manicurist or cashier at the bagel shop may find themselves receiving a spontaneous reading from Theresa as she goes about her day. The unique challenges that her special abilities create for her husband of 22 years, Larry, and her two children, aged 20 and 24, and how they cope, are also a main theme on the show. Theresa has been a practicing medium for 10 years and is a certified medium with the Forever-Family Foundation, an organization dedicated to connecting science with the afterlife. She helps individuals find closure by connecting them with their departed loved ones. For Theresa, this is not just her job... this is her life. Learn more about Theresa at theresacaputo.com.
