Our organization’s founder, Patricia Stone, has decided to step down from the leadership role she has performed for 4-1/2 years. She began the group as a small jam session for retired folks who, like her, love to play music. She guided the group through its evolution from a small jam session to a more organized Dixieland band that plays several gigs each year. We are all grateful for Patricia’s support and wish her all the best as she takes on new challenges.
During our regular rehearsal on August 16 we took a little time to share in Ken and Vivian’s celebration of 50 years of marriage. Ken played Stardust and Our Love Is Here to Stay on his trumpet before dancing the Anniversary Waltz with Vivian. Afterward we enjoyed a pot luck buffet and chocolate cake.
