Weekend Highlights, Oct 2-3 (updated)


Wanted to let you know that I’ll be at the Upper State Street Fall Fest on Saturday, Oct 2 from 10 am – 12 pm.  I am thrilled Deanna has invited me to be at the Festival!  I love opportunities to chat with families in person, so stop by and say hello will ‘ya?  I’ll have a few crafts for the kiddos, too!  I also invited my friends from Musical Folk ~ Music Together to come along and they’ll be there from 12pm – 1pm (maybe.  I just got an update that they’re under the weather.  shucks!   …they WILL be there!  yay!).  Hope to see you there!
