The Society invited Green’s Farms music teacher Suzanne Sherman Propp to perform songs from her new CD “PLAY” for children and their families at 1 p.m. and the children will sing the song following her performance. (See lyrics below)

“In Wonderful Westport” has been months in the making. In their music studies, the children listened to songs about cities and the country, but teachers could not find any about suburbs. So Propp and colleague Cheryl Buck decided to write a song with the children about Westport.

“Our first step was to brainstorm ways that Westport is special,” said Propp, who grew up in Westport and is a 1981 graduate of Staples High School. “Fortunately, the kids had no trouble recognizing what is wonderful about our community.
