Time flies very fast, and October is here. On Sunday, October 13, 2013 we are meeting for a Family Day Conference at Grounds for Sculpture. We will meet at the Rat’s restaurant entrance of the Ground for sculpture, which is located at 16 Fairgrounds Road, Hamilton, New Jersey 08619.
There is a pretty oval court yard outside the Rat’s restaurant . The oval court yard of the Rat’s restaurant is located outside the park. Here is the photo of the place where we will meet.
According to Wikipedia, Grounds for Sculpture “is a 35-acre (140,000 m2) sculpture park and museum located in Hamilton Township, Mercer County, New Jersey, United States, on the former site of the New Jersey State Fairgrounds.
Founded in 1992 by John Seward Johnson II, the venue was intended to be dedicated to promoting an understanding of and appreciation for contemporary sculpture by organizing exhibitions, publishing catalogues, and offering a variety of educational programs and special community events.”
This year we are going to 9th Annual Guild for Early Music that will held at Grounds for Sculpture from 12:30 till 5:30pm. The Guild for Early Music features Medieval, Renaissance, Baroque, and Early American music sung and played by our finest regional ensembles and concludes with a “petting zoo” of historical instruments for you to touch and play.
The event is free with park admission.
According to Grounds for Sculpture announcement, “this year’s theme, “Journeys,” features a medieval instrument demo, a youth orchestral prelude, and performances on harpsichord, viola da
gamba, recorder, harp, flute, Baroque strings, sackbut
, cornetto, percussion, and more, and includes themed “Journeys” sculpture tours of the park.”
That will be a great music performance of the Medieval, Renaissance, Baroque, and Early American eras before 18 century
and also an opportunity to meet Host Families, Au Pairs
in the area and a Local Area Representative. It is an opportunity to share their experiences and get to know each other better, gain cultural and social experiences and make new friends from different cultures.
The Family Day Conference is required by the Department of State and Host Families are obligated to attend at least one while hosting an Au Pair. It is also a favorite activity for my Au Pairs and Host Families. Attending the Family Day Conference is valuable and fun experience. Host Families and Au Pairs leave the event with unforgettable memories.
Host Families can learn about the Au Pair program
first hand. Au Pairs from Go Au Pair and their friends, Au Pairs from other agencies are welcome too! Please check other our activities
Please bring friends -everyone is welcome to join us! See you in the park!
