3rd week of September, 2014

I'm sorry to be late this week, but you know how things go sometimes.  Right?

Anyway, the only outing of which I am aware is that Jolly Hammers is playing at Bay Shore Senior Care, 3254 E. Midland Rd. in Bay City at 2:30 on Friday, September 19.

Also, I'd like to make it known that the future of the Second Jam is being considered.  Perhaps it wasn't made well enough known that we resumed after our summer break last Friday (9/12/14), but we only had one interested person come out.  If the Second Jam is something you would like to see happen every month, please put it on your calendar and come on out whenever possible.

The October version of Second Jam is still taking place, because PEANUT is still bringing people in.  I know that many people are going to be at the fall concert that evening, and attending and supporting our concert series is certainly encouraged!

We will be evaluating the level of interest in Second Jam over the next few months in order to determine what to do, so, please make your feelings known.  My e-mail is if you care to send any feedback.
