I’m looking forward to hearing some new pieces in our playing session after the summer break. See you then.



Gold-coin donations to help with hall hire

Dear guitarists,

Each month, we hire our hall for a reasonable fee. This hire fee is usually covered by concerts run by the guitar club throughout the year. The remaining fees are covered by donations from our attendees. It costs $25 per hour to hire the hall.
As attendance to each monthly meeting is currently free, and as our concert earnings only cover the hire fees for a limited time, we would greatly appreciate gold-coin donations when you attend. There will be a donations box available at each meeting.
See you on Saturday.
Jacob Wielgosz
