MOMs, DADS, are you looking for a place to have fun and fellowship with your children and other parents? We begin our 3rd year on Sept. 18th at 10am on Fridays in the Cornerstone Room (Rm. 215) at Pender United Methodist Church on Route 50. This program is for all parents and their children, ages 0 to 5.

The morning starts with 30 minutes of age appropriate interactive music followed by a snack and then playing with toys while the parents enjoy a time of fellowship and breakfast. These activities all take place in the same room.

This program continues though the school year and each semester there is a fee of $30 per family to cover the food and snacks.

Pender is located at 12401 Alder Woods Drive which is off Route 50 just east of the Fairfax County Parkway, about 10 minutes away from the O’Connor Music Studio.

From the Fairfax County Parkway: Take the exit marked Route 50, East. Get in left lane as soon as possible. Turn left at first light. Follow Alder Woods Drive to the church entrance on the left.

From I-66: Take the exit marked Route 50, West. Turn right at the third traffic light. Follow Alder Woods Drive to the left to the church entrance on the left.

NOTE: When you enter Alder Woods Drive you will see Christ Presbyterian Church in front of you.  They are very nice people, but that’s not where you’re headed. Go left. When Alder Woods Drive curves to the right, Pender Church will be on the left side.

What’s going on? Anita Collins explains the fireworks that go off in musicians’ brains when they play, and examines some of the long-term positive effects of this mental workout.
