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 sugarfmsm@gmail.com if you care to send any feedback.

Thanks!

  • Saturday, September 13th, the Community Dances are back at the Midland Community Center on Jefferson Ave. at 7:30pm. There is a cost involved with dancing, but, since this is the first paid dance of the season, it's a great time to get an annual pass!

Pick any three to five activities to attend this week, and come on out and have some FMSM-style fun!

The 2014 Festival is just a memory

The weather couldn't have been better. We had over 150 campers, about 600 people in attendance, about 100 workshops, 42 new members joined FMSM and 35 member renewals. There were too many jams in the campground to count.

Midland County Fair Week - August 11-17, 2014

It's fair week in Midland County, which can only mean one thing... elephant ears!  Actually, it also means that it's the week before the Midland Folk Music Festival, and the wheels have been turning to get things planned and in motion for months now.  Would you like to be part of connecting these two events?

FMSM has a space near the Gazebo at the Midland County Fairgrounds throughout the week of the County Fair (Aug 10 - 16) from 11 am to 10 pm to make fair-goers aware of our organization and the upcoming Folk Music Festival.  There are still shifts that are open, and FMSM could certainly use you to pass out literature and tell interested passers-by what our festival is all about!  For more information, contact Louis at 989-860-2431 or Claudia at 989-859-0335.

The only other scheduled event this week of which I am aware is SUGAR's monthly visit to Bickford Assisted Living on Thursday, 8/14/14 at 10:30am.  Second Jam and PEANUT are still in recess, and will resume on the second Friday night of September.
