The Village of Rochester Hills is excited to once again bring back our music program for children and their caregivers. Every Wednesday, starting on June 17 and running until August 26, we will enjoy story time, music (singing and dancing), an activity or craft and of course, friendship making! We start the day at 10:30am and are normally done by 11:30am, but we always have plenty of new friendships made and people stay in the park to chat, picnic and have lunch at one of our great restaurants in the Village.

In her third year with our program, we welcome back Ms Jenna as she teaches music in the beautiful Festival Park. Her Mini Musicians program is well-known and popular in the community. Ms. Jenna will be teaching the dates that are BLUE.

We welcome back Ms Carissa, who rocked with us a few times last year. We recieved some amazing feedback and we will be bringing her back on a regular basis this year. Come and jam with Ms Carissa and her pink guitar as she teaches and sings some crazy fun songs. Ms Carissa will be with us on the dates that are PINK.

“Celebrating Moms”

Mom: Ashley modeling for Evereve

Friday, May 8, 2015 starting at 5pm

Village of Rochester Hills

Benefiting Happy Home & Farm

Get your tickets now for the MOM event of the year: Girls' Night OutCelebrating Moms 2015! The event promises to be a dazzling evening of friendship, fashion and fun. Check out fashions from Village retailers and enjoy special discounts. Each participant will have the chance to win an array of prizes; including gift cards, theatre tickets and even a massage…just to name a few.

The evening started off as a simple “shopping” event and out of that came the focus on moms. “After meeting with the founder of Happy Home and Farm,” stated Shelleen McHale, marketing director of the Village, “I knew we had to tie in the parenting component to the event…it just made sense.” To be able to assist other moms that have concerns and worries for their children is a way to bring us all together for a common cause.

“I have talked with many parents with special needs children, including my own parents, and their biggest concern is: “What will happen to my child when I am no longer here? Who will be their advocate and who will care for them in the same way that we did?” These families are looking for an advocate who will ensure that their children are thriving and not just surviving. Having a younger sister with special needs, I now understand how great the need really is and I want to be an advocate for not only my sister, but other adults with developmental disabilities as well.” — Andrea Bricknell, Founder  

Tickets are available online now at http://happyhomefarm.org/events/ and are only $30 if pre-purchased. The night of the event, tickets will be $35. There are several specials and events that will take place that evening beginning with a complimentary “crown” craft from Paper Source, a $5 gift card to B-Spot for that evening, all night happy hour for participants only at Max & Erma’s (Village only), free photo booth for all participants, complimentary hand massages and Aveda tea samples from Douglas J Salon, cooking demos on the half hour with Williams-Sonoma along with free coffee, and much, much more! Bring your list of spring fashion needs and a bunch of your closest friends for a night of bonding and support for moms. Shopping has never been so fun!

Do you think you are model worthy? You may just get the opportunity to prove it to the metro-Detroit area on April 24, 2015 from 5-9pm during our Live Spring Fashions. Models will be stationed all around the Village of Rochester Hills - you won't know when you will see them or find them...and if you think you have what it takes to BE ONE OF THEM, you can apply to be chosen. Modeling agencies from the area will be onsite looking for their latest talent, it could be YOU! Entering is simple!

Go to the Village Facebook Page between April 1st and April 10th. Post your favorite photo along with your first name, age and favorite Village Store. Models will be chosen on April 11 - 14th and posted (no later than April 15th) on the Village Facebook page.
