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.

Opportunities Abound

Rome Georgia is family friendly.  It doesn't have all the perks of the big city, but fortunately Atlanta is just down the road!  But while in Rome, do as the Romans.  To keep current on all the happenings in our city I would suggest that you check Venue Dog.  Some are aimed at families, others are adult only.  Regardless, get out and enjoy Rome.

Here are a few that I recommend for the upcoming weeks:

The Adventures of Tom Sawyer presented by the Rome Little Theater.  Many members of the cast are Kindermusik grads, including Aunt Polly and Injun Joe!  The show runs from August 22 - August 31.

Rome Symphony Orchestra presents Peter and the Wolf.  This timeless work by Prokofiev introduces the orchestral instruments through an entertaining story.  The children's concert will be held on Friday, September 19 at Model High School, with shows at 10:30 am and 12:15 pm.  Each performance is 45 minutes long.  Admission is $3.  Make your reservation by calling 706-291-7967

Football season is a great time to see the bands at halftime.  Every Friday night there is a football game somewhere in Rome.  Pick a team, and show your support.  Berry football returns this fall too, with the Viking Drumline performing.  The drumline often performs at the volleyball and soccer games too.

You may know about the Farmer's Market at Ridge Ferry, but did you know that Berry has them too? You can buy vegetables, cheese, and beef.  There is a beef sale coming up on August 29 from 4 - 7 pm.  Get on the email list and you will get updates about the sales.  

The Berry dairy offers free tours Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.  Email to schedule your tour

Rome is a great town, get out and enjoy all it has to offer!
