Recap of Music Meeting August 1, 2017

We enjoyed another fantastic evening of excellent music Tuesday, August 1st at the beautiful Paschal Winery in Talent with 26 in attendance (only 7 players).

Please plan to attend the next music meeting, Tuesday, September 5th, Paschal Winery, Talent. Our special guest will be James Bishop-Edwards.

The election for the new JCGS Board of Directors will be held at the monthly general meeting the first Tuesday of October, the 3rd. Please consider being part of the society’s future direction. You must be a current member in good standing to vote or to run for a board position. If you are interested in running for the board, please respond to this message, which will reach the JCGS officers.

In order to continue at our fabulous venue (Paschal), we want to make the meetings profitable for the winery. Besides the fine wine, a cheese plate, chocolate cake ala mode and chocolate bars are available. You may also wish to take advantage of Paschal’s wine club benefits.
