PlayFair's Free Family Fun in 2009

OK, so New Year's was 3 weeks ago, but for me, the inauguration was truly the start of a new beginning. So, let's move on to the resolutions, shall we?

Although obviously I can't read your collective minds, I'll bet that many of you have one or both of these on your list: (1) finally get the house organized, and (2) remember that my time with my family is both short and precious, so remember to enjoy it and make time for it. Probably some of you also have vowed to lose a few or more pounds, or to stick to your budget.

I can't help you with the pounds thing, but PlayFair has been making a few resolutions of our own, and we want to help you with the organization and the family fun part, all at a price that will fit into absolutely any budget (that would be free).

All through 2009, we're bringing you free concerts, free art lessons, free movement classes, storytelling, and even free seminars on all sorts of things, including how to organize your house (or your garage or...), how to play with your children in ways that promote learning, and other useful and fun things. We'll be singing, dancing, and celebrating the birthdays of famous scientists, poets, authors, and more. We're kicking this all off on Valentine's Day with a free concert. Details will follow shortly.

In order to make sure that you don't miss out on any of the fun, make sure that you are signed up for our email newsletter. That's the first place that events will be announced.

Meanwhile, if you've got a talent, a profession, or a business that is potentially of interest to our customers, let us know. We are actively seeking community partners that want to be part of this fun series. You should be willing to offer something free that can be done in our store. You'll get free marketing and promotion and the opportunity to let people know what you are doing. Don't worry if you're not sure if the fit is right. Email me and let me know what you're thinking - I'd love to see if we can fit you in.
