Happy New Year!
Well, my one New Year Resolutions was to get announcements out at least two weeks prior to Ukulele Night. Resolution already broken.

December Ukulele Night will be on Tuesday, Dec. 10, not the 12th. Sorry for the confusion:-(
The Uke Cheat Sheet is a great resource to help learn which chords are used in different keys!
Well, the holiday season is upon us so I thought that maybe you needed some ukulele Holiday songs to get you going.
On our website you will find two Christmas song books: one from the River City Ulkulele Society in Richmond VA and another from the Phoenix Ukulele Club in Wigan, UK. There is some duplication of songs as you might expect.
I also have found a great ukulele “cheat sheet” to help with chords used in different keys. This will also be available on the website.
Our DECEMBER UKULELE NIGHT WILL BE ON TUESDAY, DECEMBER 12 from 6:30 -9:00 at Charlie’s Pub and Eatery. Hope to see you there for an early Christmas celebration.
Enjoy the books,
