Well, it’s the end of the year already.  What a great year we’ve had in District 6!  We’ve been able to get together to play music in jams and for audiences as well.

Our Christmas party is scheduled for Dec. 10th starting at 12 noon.  It will be held at the DesMoines Mason’s Hall and we’ll eat about 12:30 pm.  The district will provide ham and everyone is welcome to bring food to share.  After eating and enjoying good conversation, we will gather to play Christmas carols until we clear the building at 4 pm.  All are welcome.

We have no other gatherings in December so that you can enjoy your holiday activities.  Remember to renew your memberships to WOTFA before the new year.  It’s inexpensive and the right thing to do.  Need help?  Contact me at the email address below.

Starting in January, we will change our meetings to the 1st Sat. of the month.  Don’t miss out, note the dates and time below!

Our meeting date is Sat. Jan 7th, 2023 starting at 11 am (earlier than last year) and finishing at 4 pm as usual.  We’re also still in DesMoines at the Mason’s Hall.  People usually bring finger food to share for when we have lunch after the short meeting at 1 pm.  Jamming starts at 11 am until the meeting and resumes after lunch.

The January circle jam will be held on the 28th from 1 pm to 4 pm.  Some of us bring snacks to share.

Since this is the Dec./ Jan. newsletter,  I will give you a sneak preview of the February calendar.   The meeting will be held on Feb. 4th from 11 am to 4 pm, with the Circle jam on Feb. 25th from 1 pm- 4 pm.  We invite everyone at whatever musical ability or age you are.  We welcome you even if you just want to come listen to the music.  Here’s hoping you will join us sometime soon.

Happy New Year and hoping for a musical year for you all.
