Class Updates July 9th

Ellie went over the Dates to Remember as shown above and on the whiteboard in the Keyboard World Classroom. We had a nice turnout today, with one guest, Tom Morgan. He joined us for class and then went to lunch with us at Bob Evans. We had to make a change in our plans and held the meeting at KBW immediately after class; then we went to lunch at Bob’s because DaVinci’s has begun charging for the meeting room at their restaurant…

Class Updates July 2nd

Ellie went over the Dates to Remember as shown on the Keyboard World whiteboard and above these updates. Ellie requested the titles for the upcoming gig at Golden Living (July 10th at 2:00 p.m.). She passed the sign-up book around the class. Those who did not record their titles are requested to send them to Ellie via email or telephone call anytime now so that she may proceed with the program for that event. Shirley, if you read this, please call DaVinci’s to reserve the big table in the side room of the restaurant for July 10 at 12:30. Also, please send your titles and Harold’s when you can. Thanks very much. We missed you in class today…

Class Updates June 25th

Ellie went over the Dates to Remember as shown above and on the whiteboard in the Keyboard World Classroom. She requested titles for the program at Golden Living two weeks from tomorrow. You may send the titles at any time now. We were somewhat alarmed that Rosie and Diane did not attend this morning’s class and several of us tried reaching both of them by phone—unsuccessfully. We’re hoping everything is all right with them. Carol Harr brought several bags of potato chips, Doritos, Fritos, etc. for anyone who wanted to take them. They were brand new—left from when the painting “team” worked on Carol and Emma’s house-painting project. Thanks, Carol…

Class Updates June 11th

Ellie went over the Dates to Remember as shown above and on the whiteboard in the Keyboard World Classroom. We have a new gig, as shown, on July 10th at Golden Living Center. Ellie passed around the sign-up book for that activity. We talked some about the upcoming Summer Quarterly (picnic) and reminded people to not forget their items to sell at the Jumble Sale. Rosie was collecting money for the meal at Midland UMC. Sylvia Twigg told us about Elaine’s surgery and her resultant pain concerns. Please keep her in your prayers. We then arranged carpools as needed for today’s outing to Whispering Pines after class. Then we proceeded with the class…

Class Updates June 4th

Ellie went over the Dates to Remember as shown above and on the Keyboard World Classroom white board. The group was sorry to hear that Mike Gallaher is sick with bronchitis. There has been no news about Elaine’s surgery from Sylvia, and she was not in class today. The newsletters were distributed in class today. Folks were paying Rosie for their dinners at the Summer Quarterly—$11.00, due at any time. The Quarterly is two weeks from today. Remember your items for the Jumble Sale, please…

Class Updates May 28th

Ellie went over the Dates to Remember as shown above and on the Keyboard World white board. Since we were unable to play for our usual “gig customers” during the ugly winter, we’re ready to go now, but calls have not been coming in. We may want to contact those folks who normally engage our services and get back in the swing of things. What do you think?

Class Updates May 21st

Ellie went over the dates to remember as shown above and on the whiteboard in the Keyboard World Classroom. The group is preparing for the Summer Quarterly (picnic, etc) on June 18th. This week, however, we had a planned excursion to the Road Kill for lunch after class. There were nine people who participated, one a guest of Betty Twigg’s—her cousin Rose Shriver of Midland. She was welcomed warmly and seemed to enjoy herself. Also, this day was the deadline for Musically Speaking, which will be printed and distributed about ten days prior to the Summer Quarterly (June 18th)…

Class Updates May 14th

Ellie went over the Dates to Remember as shown above and on the white board in the Keyboard World classroom. The group had agreed to begin the Executive Committee Meeting as a segment of the class on this date, as we had a gig at 2:30 at the Frostburg Heights Apartments and our time was somewhat limited. We addressed several items on the agenda, which was distributed in class and then continued the meeting at our luncheon at the Dragon Buffet after class. As it turned out we had time for class, lunch and the meeting before the gig. We all arrived at approximately the same time at Frostburg, and the gig went very well except for the weather! The group we entertained was quite responsive and appreciative of our program. All went well, though some of us got soaked during the worst of the storm which occurred just about the time we were finishing up the gig…
