Gilmer Dulcimer Players
There's a new opportunity to play the dulcimer in Gilmer. Several from our club wanted more opportunities to play in the Gilmer area, so after a very nice size turn-out for their first meeting, they've decided to start meeting on the second Saturday morning of each month. The meeting is from 9:30 until Noon in the annex to First Baptist Church, Gilmer. It is located at 304 Buffalo Street, on the southeast corner of Buffalo and Trinity.
