Put on your dancing shoes and join us for a good ole fashioned Hoe Down on Friday October 3rd at Essex Elementary . We will have live music performed by Daisy Nell and Captain Stan on guitar and banjo, Jack Schwartz on the double bass, Jay Keefe on fiddle, and Pat Conlon on mandolin. We will dance to the tunes of Jump Jim Joe, Alabama Gal, and Cotton Eyed Joe to name just a few. These are fun and engaging dances for all ages and anyone can participate. Come meet these awesome area musicians and learn how to folk dance like they did in the old days. This is great opportunity to hang out with your children, meet new people and have some fun. Hope to see you there!

So good to see you all at Welcome Back Night!  We had beautiful weather and a perfect evening to kick off our new school year in style.  Thank you to all of our tables: Apple Street Farm; Boy & Girl Scouts; Essex Farmers Market; Essex Shipbuilders Athletic Association; Gloucester Uechi Karate Academy; Learn to Skate; Music Asylum; and Seven Acres Farm. A special thank you goes out to our favorite DJ, David Alger, for making the party ROCK!  And to all our amazing volunteers, we could not do this without you. 

Here's to a great 2014-2015 school year!
