Thanks for stopping by A Family Place. I enjoy working with families, and sharing the power of music with them. Kindermusik provides this outlet for me. This blog will allow me to share thoughts and ideas that can help families in their journey.

Fall Break and Community Events

Kindermusik classes at Berry will observe fall break the week of September 30 - October 4.  This coincides with Rome City, Floyd County and several other other school systems. Classes will resume the week of October 7 and continue through the week of December 9.

Halloween falls on a Thursday this year, and Thursday afternoon/evening classes may be altered to allow children to enjoy the festivities of the day. Look for details from your teacher...coming soon!

October brings cooler weather and a plethora of activities to the Rome community.  Here are a few things to put on the family calendar.

Storytime at the Rome Floyd Library begins on Tuesday October 8.  The children's department has shows each Tuesday at 10 or 11 a.m.  Come and join in the stories, songs and spontaneity of storytime!

The Pumpkin Patch at Trinity United Methodist Church on Turner McCall Boulevard begins October 1 and continues through October 31.  Search for the perfect pumpkin, buy some home baked goodies and support the youth group at Trinity.

Coosa Valley Fair is October 1 - 5 at the fairgrounds on Martin Luther King Bouelvard.  Carnival rides, an art show, and animals to enjoy. Get details here

Berry has a full calendar of events for you to enjoy.  Some events are best suited as a "date night", but there are the occasional kid friendly activities. Opening on September 26 is Rodgers and Hammerstein's "A Grand Night for Singing" - a musical highlighting the showstoppers this pair created.  Read more about it here.  Go to  and click on NEWS to stay up to date with happenings on campus.

Chiaha Harvest Fair is a favorite fall outing.  Enjoy arts, crafts, music and tasty treats. Mark your calendars for October 26 - 27.

Peach State Marching Festival is a great way to enjoy a day of marching bands without the football game!  This year marks the 40th year of this band competition at Barron Stadium.  The afternoon and evening is filled with music and marching.  A special performance by the JSU Marching Southerners will conclude the evening of song.
