FMSM events for July 27 thru August 3, 2014

First of all, FMSM apologizes to those of you who came out for the Mt. Haley Jamboree last Friday night (7/25/14).  Apparently, the staff and management of the township hall booked a graduation party that night and didn't realize that the Jamboree is customarily held on the last Friday night of the month.

Here's what's cookin' for the upcoming week...

Wednesday, July 30th - JH/S plays at Haithco Park in Saginaw at 7pm.

Thursday, July 31st - SUGAR plays for a luau at Edgewood Assisted Living, 4850 Gratiot in Saginaw from 1:30 until 2:30pm

Friday, August 1 - JH/S plays at the Merrill Farm Fest at 7pm.

Saturday, August 2 - SUGAR meets at Sullivan's Restaurant, 5235 Gratiot in Saginaw from 10:30am until noon.  Optional lunch afterward.

Sunday, August 3 - the last scheduled installment of Folk Music Sunday happens at Dow Gardens, 1809 Eastman Ave. in Midland from 4-6pm.  Admission for listeners is $5, or an annual pass is $10.

That's about all I know about...

Hi, July...

Happy 4th of July to all of you Americans involved with FMSM.  Don't blow your fingers off with those silly firecrackers, because you may need them during the upcoming weekend, or at least for Evart!

Saturday, July 5th, is the monthly SUGAR at Sullivan's date.  Sullivan's Restaurant is on Gratiot (M-46) in Saginaw, and the group will meet from 10:30 until noon and work on some Hawaiian and patriotic songs, and if you wish, you may stay for lunch as well.

Sunday, July 6, is the third installment of Folk Music Sundays at Dow Gardens, and from 4-6 pm, there will be musical groups throughout the grounds, and dancing in the barn for you to enjoy.  Admission to DG is $5 by the day, and $10 for an annual pass.

I know that some of our folks will be heading up to Evart this week, so, have safe travels.  There is more info about the ODPC Funfest in Evart at , so if you're wondering what this is all about, take a look this week so you'll have time to make plans to attend!


Summertime is here! June 22-28, 2014 events

On Wedesday, June 23rd, JH/S will be playing at Haithco Park in Saginaw at 7pm.  If you're playing, show up at 6:31 so you won't be charged admission to the park.

Jolly Hammers camping and picnic is the weekend of June 28.  You can come in anytime before that.  Friday evening we will make pizza  on the grill again. Bring your favorite toppings.  Potluck on Saturday.  Maybe we will find some time to play music too.

The Mt. Haley Jamboree is Friday, 6/25/14.  If you want more details, click on the "Jams" tab.

That's all I have...
