Hi "One-Heart Community Drum" Folks!,
    Apologies for not getting out a newsletter last week, but nothing was new that was not posted the week prior, and the weather turned out to be very inclement, so the park was not conducive to outdoor drumming.
    Meghan and Chris Foreacre's daughter's birthday party, (Madeline's), was a huge success, and much fun was had by all! Thanks to the Foreacre's for the opportunity to join in the festivities!
    This weekend we will be at the annual wedding anniversary celebration of Matt and Camilla Johnson, at the Beech Hill Pond Community, in W. Danby. Since the gathering begins with a potluck meal in the mid-afternoon, there won't be time to drum in Stewart Park prior. CU at Beech Hill Pond. P.S. Food is potluck, so be sure to bring something to share! Thanks! Also, Happy Full Moon tomorrow afternoon! Love, Steve
