Upcoming Events information (Christmas Concert, Barnes and Noble and more!)

1 - December 11 - Concert at Barnes and Noble 2:00 - Christmas attire - Please come and play with us! The playlist is attached.

Barnes and Noble is donating a portion of their proceeds from December 10 - 14 to SSA IF our voucher number is used at checkout. It applies to purchases in the store, at the Starbucks Cafe and Online. We are hoping it will be a great fundraiser for us. We will also be wrapping gifts in front of Barnes and Noble on the 11th.

We will need volunteers to sit at a table and chat with folks as they walk by, encourage people to use the vouchers at checkout, and to make an ornament to take with them.

Shifts for helpers will be 9:00-11:00, 11:00-1:00, 1:00-3:00, 3:00-5:00, and 5:00-7:00. Please text, email or call Nan to set up a time to help out.
