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 www.dulcimers.com/festival.html , 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!
