Gene writes;

So far Susanna and Cory have shown interest in teaching songs or lessons but it will be open to any member who wants to come up and lead the group. I just would like anyone who wants time in the second half to come early (between 9 and 10) so we can work out how much time each person will need and schedule the time accordingly. They should also bring enough copies of any material they will use to share with the group.

             
12:00 – Performance Time

This is your time to shine. Play us a tune. You won’t regret it.
