Class Updates January 14th

Ellie went over the Dates to Remember and then the group proceeded with the “abbreviated” Executive Committee Meeting, as we needed to determine the date and location for the Spring Quarterly. We agreed that we will have a Potluck luncheon at the Keyboard World location on March 25th. Judy Miller, of Grace UMC told Ellie that she will make us a carrot cake for the occasion! Diane Morgan read the minutes of our previous meeting, and Rosie Morgan gave the financial report. We couldn’t help but notice that our balance in the treasury is lower than it has ever been. Must be getting closer and closer to “dues are due” date!

Class Updates January 7th

Ellie welcomed everyone back from the holidays. We went over the Dates to Remember, which you can see are very sparse. We have no gigs, and with weather like we’re having right now, we don’t really want any. We gave both Carol and Shirley birthday cards and sang to them as they have birthdays on January 7 and 11, respectively. Happy Birthday to Carol and Shirley!

Class Updates December 10th

Ellie went over the Dates to Remember as shown above and on the whiteboard in the Keyboard World Classroom. She inquired about John Lynch’s progress since his hospitalization and was told that he’s limited in what he can do, but he’s coming along. Elaine Twigg was unable to attend Wednesday’s Christmas Quarterly because of inclement weather, but we missed her and hope that, perhaps, she’ll attend the In-Class Christmas Party on December 17th. The sign up book was circulated and people were asked to confirm what titles they plan to play on our final gig of 2014. That’s Tuesday, December 16th, folks. Don’t forget—Allegany County!

Class Updates November 19th

Ellie went over the Dates to Remember as shown above and on the whiteboard in the Keyboard World Classroom. Diane Morgan gave a report on John’s condition after his recent surgery. Ellie circulated the sign up book the program for Thursday’s gig so that those who had not given Ellie titles in advance could fill those in. She also requested that people sign up for the December 5th gig at Dawnview. Please inform Ellie if your titles for December 5th are DIFFERENT from the November 20th gig. Please pay Rosie for your dinner at the Christmas Quarterly ($11) per meal, and please don’t forget to have your items ready for the Jumble Sale. The Christmas Issue of Musically Speaking will be mailed probably before Thanksgiving. It’s just about ready to go to print now.

Class Updates November 12th

Ellie went over the Dates to Remember as shown above and on the Keyboard World Classroom white board. She requested titles for those who had given them to her for the program for the gig at Devlin Manor on FRIDAY, November 14th at 2 p.m. Rosie reported that John Lynch was still in the ICU at WMHS, though he has since been moved to a regular room. His condition is still not good, but at least he is eating regular diet food items since his colon resection. Other specialists are working to improve John’s breathing, his blood circulation, and his kidney problems as well as working to help him have a full recovery from the surgery. John’s discharge date has not been revealed to us as of this writing. Please keep him in your prayers…

Class Updates October 29th

Ellie went over the Dates to Remember as shown above and on the white board in the Keyboard World Classroom. Rosie was collecting fees for lessons from the students. Ellie complimented the group on the performance at Allegany Nursing Home (October 28) and thanked the participants. We welcomed Bill Ewing back to class after his lengthy absence due to vacation(s) and illness. Betty Twigg had called Ellie early on Wednesday morning to say she was feeling rotten and would not be attending class. Elaine is doing better and, perhaps, is going to purchase a new car!

Ellie went over the Dates to Remember as shown above and on the white board in the Keyboard World Classroom. She pointed out a new gig that is scheduled for Devlin Manor on November 14th at 2 p.m. and passed the Sign Up Book around the class. (see above). We were sorry that Bill Ewing didn’t make it to class today and hope he is not ill. Ellie hasn’t had a chance to call his home so far today but will do so tomorrow and send an email if there is any news to pass on to the group…

Class Updates October 15th

Ellie went over the Dates to Remember as shown above and on the whiteboard in the Keyboard World Classroom. We were surprised that Bill Ewing was absent STILL. We guess that he and Ellie are still on vacation and hope to see them or him, as the case may be, next class. Ellie circulated the sign-up book around the room and asked the Notables to sign up for both of the upcoming dates for Allegany Nursing Home—the first one being on October 28th at 2:00 p.m. and the second one being on December 16 at 2:00 p.m. (see above). Please mark your calendars for these two dates…
