WINESING spends a day in Mineville, N.S. with a SMUG founder RON TALLON and his new Group MUSE


Five members of WineSing traveled to Mineville Nova Scotia on Tuesday to spend the day with Ron Tallon, and the evening with Ron and his newly formed Ukulele Group, The
MINEVILLE UKULELE SINGERS ENSEMBLE
. The group consists of eleven members who Ron has taken under his wing and has them performing already in churches and various venues. They have a huge repertoire that Ron has put together for them and have become in short time very accomplished.We all sang together for an hour or so after which WineSing did a few numbers for them from our own repertoire. Refreshments, and much discussion followed before some of us had to retire for the evening. It was a great thing for the two groups to do and thoughts of a repeat on PEI are in some minds. Our thanks to Ron for his great hospitality and wonderful(as always) biscuits for breakfast.

SMUG ENJOYS ANNUAL SUMMER PICNIC WITH ANDREWS STRUMMERS

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MARY

AUGUST 26 is not only Mary's Birthday it is the annual picnic  for SMUG where once again we enjoyed being hosted by The Andrews Strummers at beautiful Andrews of Stratford Community Care Facility. Sharon, the activity directory was there to not only welcome SMUG but to play along with the 24 Strummers assembled, and provide tea, coffee and lemonade, not to mention the glorious cookies. After a two hour jam session we broke for a traditional pizza treat from the new Greco store in Stratford. Now both the Strummers and SMUG are ready to settle in to a regular fall season of weekly jamming.
