January 2017 Meeting

Happy New Year! Our January meeting will be Saturday the 14th at 2PM. This time, we’ll be at the home of Ed and Dawn Dougherty, 359 Green Meadow Lane in Roxboro. Their phone number is 919-801-2846 if you get lost or need directions. Look for the USMC garden flag at the end of the driveway. Ed and Dawn have two large lab dogs as well as a tiny but spunky cat, in case you have allergies or issues with animals.

This month, we’ll be featuring the flutes and music of Xavier Quijas Yxayotl. Then we’ll do some facilitated playing activities. As always, if you have a song to share, whether it’s a traditional tune, an improv piece, or a jam with you and a few friends, we look forward to hearing it. If you just want to hang out and listen, that’s cool too. If you’d like to bring a snack to share, feel free to do so.

In order to make life a little easier for all of us, I went ahead and scheduled out all meetings for 2017. Many of you have already volunteered to host these meetings and to act as our monthly facilitator for playing time, and I definitely appreciate that. Here’s the schedule listing both host and facilitator for each month:
