Fay School’s Saturdays Farmer’s Markets are winding down – with this Saturday’s Halloween celebration as the last. So, it makes sense that they are kicking off the new season of “Saturdays at Fay” soon.

The series offers free, fun programs designed for children aged 6 and under along with their parents. Events are open to the public, but pre-registration is required.

On Saturday, November 10, at 10:00 am, the school is hosting “Deb’s Fabulous Fall Swing and Sing”:

Join us for a fall-themed music and movement program with Deb Hudgins. This interactive program will feature singing, guitar music, dancing, rhythm instruments, stories, and a variety of fun props, including a parachute, beanbags, scarves, pom-poms, lummy sticks, puppets and more.

I found a few pics from Hudgins’ past Swing and Sing events, posted to Facebook by Whitnsville Social Library and Beginning Bridges CFCE:


The event takes place at Fay School’s Primary School. Parking is available throught the East Entrance at 23 Middle Road. (Click here for a campus map.)

Registration is open, but space may be limited. To sign up, click here.

The Saturdays at Fay series will skip December, then return monthly through April. It’s too soon to sign up for the other upcoming shows. But you may want to mark your calendars.

Each takes place from 10:00 – 11:00 am on a Saturday:
