District 16 WOTFA – Evergreen Fiddler News for September 2023 – Reporter Dianne Gooch

We are having great turnouts at our 2nd & 4th Friday night jams. We begin at 3:00 pm and this allows folks to come and go with a more flexible schedule. The jams continue until about 10:00 pm (or a bit later) at the Sisco Heights Community Club, 13527-99th Ave NE, Arlington, WA 98223.  We also have coffee and welcome finger treats to enjoy.

Our next  business meeting will be held in September 22nd. We encourage all members to be present. Thank you to Sharman Smith for her service as District 16 treasurer. Thanks to Alison Grim who has agreed to take over this important position.

Our next WOTFA Midway Jam will be Sunday, September 24, 1:30-4:00 pm, at the Lynnwood Library (19200 44th Ave W, Lynnwood). We have 15-25 musicians at these jams. We have a great time playing fiddle tunes, bluegrass tunes, some swing tunes and being challenged with new tunes.  We are thankful to the Lynnwood Library for freely welcoming us to use this great room. This is a great air-conditioned place to play music on these hot summer days.

We had a great group and lots of good music!
