2021 Jam Schedule
♫ Due to COVID19 all In-person Jams are cancelled until further notice, we are doing Zoom jams for now♫
♫ Please join us on Zoom for virtual jam sessions♫
The Virtual jam time is 2PM to 4:30PM
Contact Mary McGown (email@example.com) for Zoom meeting invite to join the jam session.
Dear Members: As stated in a previous email, we are taking a month to month approach to our jams.
There will be no October Meeting at the Grange.
Hopefully, we can have a November jam.
Mary McGown suggested we stop meetings until Sacramento County lifts it's indoor mask mandate.
I think this is a good idea, and we will include the necessary safety protocols in the notifications of any future meetings.
Please stay safe, and I know we are all looking forward to getting District 5 Meetings back on track.Thanks!
