July 7 - Special club meeting
On July 7th we will have a special club meeting at Janice Marsh's house starting at 10 AM. There will be no workshops, but jamming and food. The suggested jamming theme is hymns, but probably more than that will be played. For the latter, bring some kind of finger food.
If you need directions to Janice's place, contact Janice using the link on our home page.
