LMC Family Picnic, Google Group, Annual Meeting, First Rehearsal

Greetings, Gents!

Just a few things to go over today before the storms (supposedly) start.  A little rain won't be bad- the grass around where I live is a nice shade of khaki...

Regardless, let's get to it!

LMC FAMILY PICNIC!

Reminder: The LMC Family Picnic is being 'hosted' this year by Jack Day, in combination with his annual Dream Cruise shindiggery!  

Date: FRIDAY, August 17 (Friday!  Not some other day as may have been implied earlier)

Time: 3:30pm - 10pm

Who: EVERYONE in the LMC Family (if you got this email, that's you!)

Who Else: Anyone who might be interested in JOINING the LMC family is especially welcome!

Music, burgers, brats, hot dogs, beans, coleslaw, snacks, keg beer, soft drinks, and ice cream will be provided.  If you would like to bring a dish, beverage, etc. please do so, but bring it in a disposable container- you don't want to lose a favorite plate!               

So that we know how much food to buy, PLEASE RSVP by August 15.  You can either do the online RSVP:

 Click HERE to RSVP!

...or email CJReynolds22@gmail.com  and we will send you a map.  Let us know how many people you are bringing to help us plan & buy food!

There is off-street Reserved Parking available for (50) collector cars and a few motorcycles so let us know if you would like to bring one.

We can always use volunteers to help.  If you can help please let me know!  Thursday setup starting at 3pm, Parking on Friday, Sunday tear down 1:30pm.

Any questions, contact CJ Reynolds at 586-202-1280.

NOTE: Please do not bring chairs or anything else you may forget to take home.

IT AND 'DA LMC:

IT, as in Information Technology, NOT "the-sewer-clown-turns-into-a-scary-spider-thing-and-eats-kids" movie from Stephen King (if that spoiled the movie for you, I'm extraordinarily sorry)

New webmaster and Bass extraordinaire Greg Forsyth has been working feverishly on a new website and a lot of new really cool IT related doodads for the LMC.  One of those new doodads is a Google Group- which will allow us to send out group emails much easier.

As this project is currently in the beginning steps, there will be more information to follow.  But for now, if you get an email invitation to join Google Groups- specifically from "LMCBSO@googlegroups.com"- please accept the invitation!  Future emails, including future editions of the MWM, will be coming from that group.  (Eventually- like I said, the project is just underway!)

Watch this space- more cool info to follow!

ANOTHER OPENIN', ANOTHER SHOW...

Remember to join us on September 9th for all sorts of cool things:

First, there will be a tour meeting for everyone interested in the 2019 International Tour.  (Due to down-payment requirements and decisions that need to be made on a schedule, attendance at this meeting may be mandatory for all singers going on tour- watch for more information in a future MWM)

Second will be the 2018 Annual Meeting of the Langsford Musical Society (LMC's "parent organization" - if you're ever having trouble sleeping give me a call and I'll explain why that is- I can bore anyone out of insomnia)... also, FREE FOOD if you come to the Annual Meeting!

Third is the first rehearsal of the 2018-2019 Performance Season!  One of the benefits of being the treasurer is that I get to see a lot of the set list before everyone else (they list the pieces on the invoice). IMHO the music for this term looks very good.  Come join/re-join us for what promises to be a great season!  And bring a friend!  Or 6!

Times for all the above will be sent out very soon,

IN OTHER NEWS:

NOTHING!  Well, at least not now.  But if you have ANY information you'd like to share with the group- concerts, programs, interesting bits of info- please send me (cj) an email and I'll be happy to include it in next week's MWM!

+++++++++++++++++++++++++

And that's about it for today!
