We’ve signed up for the Amazon “Smile” program. This is like the local store ones where a portion of the sales is given back to organizations in the community. In this case Amazon will give a portion of your purchases (some are not eligible) back to a charity of your choice. If you choose to participate and want to help us, go HERE: https://smile.amazon.com/ch/65-0128320. You do have to order from the “smile.amazon.com” site.
March 22: 5:30 – 8:00 PM Board and member meeting
7PM, Songs Of The Pioneers – A historical look at songs from the 1880s and earlier.
The Englewood Band Of Writers will present songs the early settlers of Englewood would have sung as families gathered in the house after a hard day’s work. Entertainment – in the late 1800s – for early settlers had to be self-generated. So Dad might tell stories, and all would sing the popular songs of the day. Surprisingly, in our era of today when fame is a 30 second video, many of these songs are still familiar to us. This is a unique change to learn about the true history of the songs and also to sing along with the band.
The meeting is open to the public and no registration is required.
The instruments have been photoshopped into the picture, but a biography of Jody Anderson (2nd from L) by his son Oscar tells of the times the family listened to Jody’s tales of the earliest days of Englewood.
