September 2023 Meeting

A rare photo of Ken

As expected just after the holiday, our turn-out for the Sept. 5th meeting was ‘modest’, at best. No matter! We have more time for stories and socializing with a small group. Our chief cook and bottle washer, Rich Ryan, was in Baahhstahn MA (the phonetic spelling) getting those folks back in line. Which left yours truly to herd the cats this month. It went well; not that many, and very COOL cats.

Ken started our Day After Labor Day meeting with an original tune called Labor Day, oddly enough. David Norby brought his usual eclectic playlist of songs none of us have heard in 25 years or more, which is always a treat. Ed Heffern took us around the world with songs from Kentucky, Mexico, Ireland, and the Norwegian Woods, wherever they are.
