CANCELLED: Next Get Together – August 13, 2014

CANCELLED: Due to a hopefully brief complication with Drew’s knee situation, NWPA Ukuleles at Charlie’s Pub and Eatery on Wednesday, August 13 from 7:00 to 9:00 PM is regretfully cancelled. More news a little later, but he thought it best to cancel now so he can focus on being ready to dance a jig at the September get-together.

Depending on the progress of his recuperation, Drew may schedule a special session later on  – stay tuned!

Some people had a question about whether Drew would be leading NWPA Ukuleles get together on August 13.

The answer is yes, of course. Even if he has to be rolled in and strapped to his seat he will be there.

A fun song list is set – check it out below!

We played in the Youth Activities Building (a barn) at the Craawford County Fairgrounds in Meadville PA.

Nine members of our group were available to play at the Crawford County Relay for alive Survivors Dinner on Saturday, June 21. Our hour long set of songs was a big hits with the dinner guests during the social hour prior to the dinner. We can all be proud of this group of players for the outstanding job they did on the performance.

Notice the excellent engineering for the hanging of the group banner.  When asked to please find a place to hang the banner, our crew created a wall by upending a picnic table on milk crates.  NWPA ingenuity at work.
