What's Coming Up This Week At Our Club:

Monday, September 22, 2014

10 am: Medicare Advantage Plans
Your choice, your benefits, your plan
Instructor: Kearney Sheirich

1pm: NEW: The Music Workshop
We will be discussing people in the class and their experiences thru out life involving music. Whether they played, sang, were song writers, support staff or just enjoyed listening, we'd like them to share their stories. I'd also like to bring in local musicians (working or retired) to hear their stories or possibly hear and see a short demonstration of their talents. With 800 plus members in our club, many have musical talents that they might share with us. Music, of course, is the universal language, and I feel the possibilities are endless. I'm certain also that the people in the class will share ideas also as to the direction we might go with the workshop.  Discovering new web sites that play music of all types will certainly be a primary goal. A small session among our own members might even be possible. At any rate it will certainly be a fun learning experience for us all. Facilitator: Larry Lisle
