Group Classes Going Live in October!
The Spring Fling recital went really well, in spite of the technical glitches! I am proud of all of you! Now, we can look forward to December’s Fall Fling, our first in-person/online recital/potluck in several years, learning some wonderful new music along the way!
Until October, we will continue to hold our group classes strictly online. However, as all of the Denver students are now vaccinated, we will meet in person for our group classes starting in October (2 pm-3:30 pm on Sat, Oct 2, very kindly hosted by Erin and Jason Cooper at their home). Stephanie is hoping to be here for that meeting, as well! We will also have a computer set up, so that students in other locales can join us online for all classes, rehearsals, and recitals. This also means the November 13, 2 pm, recital rehearsal will be in person for most, with the others online.
BIG Congratulations to alum Ireland Blim on her graduation from Xavier College Prep, and her concurrent Associate in Arts from Rio Salado College! Her next adventure is ASU Business School of Law! WOW! Very proud of you, Ireland!
Alum Sabrina Winter and current student Tay Hamilton announced that one of the bands they perform with, Love Stallion, played with Steel Panther on June 19 at Levitt Pavillion in Denver.
Mel is home, now, and stable, and Chris and Jordan took us to Stodgy’s Brewery a half block west of us for Father’s Day. It was 9 months ago that we last went there, shortly after he’d gotten his freedom with his new wheelchair, and only a week before his stroke. He admits these 9 months have been very hard.
My brother, E. Micheal Lunsford, has completed the third book in his Derek Hyde series for youngsters 8-12 years old! This month I’ve been reading Derek Hyde and the Dead-End Maze one chapter a night to my grandson, Reece, and we just finished it on 6/22. It’s full of ghost pirates and buried treasure, Rio de Janiero, underground caverns, kidnappings, clown cars, and camels! (His books can be found on Amazon.)
“Life is a play. It’s not its length, but its performance that counts.” Anon.
We continue to push on and live life as fully as we can, visiting C&J’s garden (incredible!), watching shows we enjoy, and taking flower photos, which give us great joy. Docs may fill up the rest of our time for now, but progress is happening and we embrace it!
Stay safe and well!
