So cool, y'all! With our newest members Debbie and Gloria, we have equaled our largest meeting yet! We got to use the new giant multi-media screen in the Community Room to present our songsheets. So clear and easy-to-read, we loved it!

Gateway Villas Assisted Living has invited us once again for their August Luau. We had more players and more audience than ever! We'd like to thank them very much for making us a part of their special day.

Marble Falls Library has a Summer Reading Program in July, so we met again at Virginia's house for the Fourth Thursday Meeting. We use our projector to display the song sheets, Virginia always jokes that we're lucky she has an empty wall!
We were invited by the Marble Falls Senior Activity Center to perform patriotic songs for their Memorial Day celebration. The memorial presentation was beautiful and moving. We were so honored they asked us. We can't think of a more wonderful way to spend Memorial Day, thank you so very much for having us!
Our meeting today was great fun! We played and sang and discussed our upcoming gig on Memorial Day, May 28 at Marble Falls Senior Center. Hope to see you all at the next meeting to practice the patriotic songs we'll be playing. The Patriotic Songbooks for the gig are HERE for Standard tuning and HERE for Baritone.
The annual Children's Day celebration in Marble Falls, TX is dedicated to honoring and supporting children in the Texas Hill Country. It has grown to include opportunities for learning, activities, food, sports and entertainment. Our member William entered the Talent Contest, booked as "A Special Teen and Ukulele Friends". He and his father Mario joined the club about 6 months ago for fun, relaxation and to help with William's progress in his therapy for Autism. It has helped him a great deal and members of our club backed up his presentation. We had a wonderful time showcasing the benefits of music for everyone, everywhere!
Our second Thursday meeting at Llano Library was great fun as always. Once in a great while one of our original members Virginia is absent because of life stuff and we missed her. Here's hoping she's back soon!
Today's meeting was a blast! We're adding new songs every time and the Songbook is very diverse and interesting. Of course we have to do 'my favorite song', which is now a joke because they're all my favorites!
We had the largest group yet! The addition of a new member, Richard and Mira's friends who were visiting brought the grand total to 13. With 3 new songs it was a lively meeting. Thanks for coming out, y'all.
Another amazing meeting tonight! We started a bit early and managed to play almost the entire songbook, even with all the chit-chat that seems to always happen. A patron of the library stopped in and stayed for the meeting. I must say I can't blame her, we're quite the ensemble. Linda said she had a wonderful time and she'll be back. Then I unlocked the door...
This week's meeting was such fun! Don brought the little purple bass, which at Elizabeth's suggestion I've named Iris. With Bobby's percussion and Don on bass, we sounded better than ever! We also discussed the healing power of music. It's a real thing. Thanks so much, y'all.
