No matter how cold spring is, it will be hot, hot, hot!
MDSD dues are really expected at the end of the year. We still have quite a few folks who have not sent their annual dues to Margaret. Don’t forget, folks…. We’d hate to have to take you off our membership roster! Just think what you’d miss!
Between the concert and workshops with the Grubers (when Mother Nature was not exactly kind, and we had to reschedule the workshops) and Dulcimer Doin’s (when Mother Nature was extremely kind and brought us spring weather) ….we’ve been BUSY!
Just because our two big events are over for the year, doesn’t mean that we’ll be resting on our laurels for too long. With spring and summer usually comes MDSD playdates, where we get to go out and perform for the public and share our music. Stay tuned! (well, that’s always good advice, isn’t it?) xox Cindy 😉
