From the President:
Greetings folkies!

As the days get longer, warmer, and brighter and we shake off the winter blues, remember as Mark Twain said, "the best way to cheer
yourself up is to try to cheer somebody else up."
We have a very exciting March with slow jams, a St Paddy's day contra, and an excellent concert by Dan Maher! Please enjoy our di-
verse offerings and remember to bring your friends.
