Steady & Sharp Fair
Free! – Oct. 30, 2019, 9:00 am - 12:00 pm – SFL Main Location
Mark your calendars for October 30th and join us for the Steady & Sharp Fair! What better way to exercise our brains than by learning something new, and why not make it fun? We have many activities planned for our Steady for Life students including a Spelling Bee narrated by our very own Amy Farnsworth and mind-challenging games and activities including a drumming class by Paula Williams and a brain teaser session by Debra Wade. We are honored to have guest Michael Deuel, Case Manager for The Alabama Institute for Deaf and Blind, who will offer us a simple sign language class and teach us how to sign the song, “You Are My Sunshine”. The event is FREE, but we need to know that you are coming! Please RSVP to us by clicking the "Register online" button and filling out the form as soon as possible.
