Last week of February 2014....

Let's hope that March is more conducive to getting out and musicking than February (and January, and December, and November!) have been.  Here's what's lined up for the next week's activities:

Friday, 2/28/14, is the Mt. Haley Jamboree, held at the MHTH (Mt. Haley Township Hall) from 7-10 pm.

Saturday, 3/1/14 (aka 2/29/14 :-), is the monthly SUGAR uke group meeting at Sullivan's Restaurant on M-46 in Saginaw.  

If you need more details, check out those pages here on the website, or contact those in charge, whose information is listed on those pages.

the same set list of lovey-dovey songs that we 
will be using at Sullivan's on the 15th.  That way, 
we will have a stellar package of sweet, syrupy 
schmaltz ready to roll rin case we get invited to
 play at halftime at Super Bowl XLIX.
