It's time again for our ukulele jam, this Wednesday February 3, 7pm. First things first, I need a volunteer to lead the jam this time since I have a schedule conflict. E-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like to do this. It just involves keeping people focused and the music flowing, as well as collecting a toonie from everyone.
This brings up an important issue. Moving forward, I'd like to have more people to be involved with organizing this group. I'd like to hear from you. Would you be willing to be more active in organizing jams and other uke related activities? Let me know. For example, do you have a talent in cartooning or graphic design? Would you like to design a logo or cartoon mascot for the group? Would you like to organize concerts at retirement homes or nursing homes? Would you like to lead a workshop? Many of us play other instruments besides ukulele. How about an occasional non-ukulele jam? Any ideas are welcome.
There's one possible event that we may be involved with. My daughter wants to organize some sort of event with her Pathfinders group, and may ask us to be involved, possibly to provide a back-up band for a group of singers from her group, performing at a local retirement home. I'll let you know once they decide what to do.
Remember, we jam at the Kingston Community House, 99 York Street in downtown Kingston, on the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of the month (excluding holidays). 7pm. The cost is $2 per jam. If you haven't yet printed off your own copy of our favorites document, you can download it here.
