Such a long time between meetings. Here it is Sunday the 31st and I find myself needing to play some ukulele with all you Pluckin’ Strummers. I’ll have to wait until the 13th but I’ll get some satisfaction by picking the song list and practicing. With plenty of time to prepare we should sound like professionals!

Thanks to all that attended our last meeting with Victoria Vox. She did a great job as usual and I look forward to her visiting again soon. There’s a couple upcoming workshop guests in the works so stay tuned.

Attention all Pluckin’ Strummers members and all other ukulele enthusiasts!
Victoria Vox will be at our next meeting! She will be teaching a workshop during the second half of the meeting starting at 11:00 am.
Members need only pay their normal $5 dues plus an additional $5 for the workshop. The fee for non-members is $15.
Last year Victoria did a fantastic job and this workshop will be one not to miss.

Later that same Saturday in the early evening one of our members, Sue Olson, will be hosting a house concert in North Glendale where Victoria Vox will delight us with a performance. There’s a Facebook event page with an email address to RSVP. Search “Victoria Vox house concert” on Facebook. Don’t hesitate because seating will be limited and you won’t want to miss this spectacular and intimate concert by the delightful and extremely talented Victoria Vox.

Hello Strummers!
Long time no see. We had another one of those three week spans between meetings.
In case you missed last weeks post our suggested membership dues amount has been cut in half. The church’s percentage has doubled so they will experience no change.
As I’ve said before I’d rather it was completely free but unfortunately expenses need to be covered. Thanks to all our members as we approach our five year anniversary.
