Memorial sing-along for Margie Wade

Many of you have heard that long-time SFFMC member and our friend, Margie Wade, passed away suddenly on December 26th.  At Camp Harmony there were some remembrances of her and of other Club members who had recently died, but we would like to honor her wish that if a memorial ever took place for her, she wanted it to take the form of her friends getting together and making music.

Such a memorial is now being planned, and we hope to honor Margie’s wishes, although there will be time for remembrances of her life, too.

The event will take place via Zoom on Sunday, January 24, from 3 pm to approximately 6 pm.  If you would like the Zoom link to the memorial, contact SFFMC Vice President Hali Hammer at halih@yahoo.com and Hali will send it to you.

New community folk calendar on our site!

Camp Harmony was online this year

Our usual site at Walker Creek Ranch has been closed through at least the end of 2020, so we took Camp Harmony online via Zoom.  Camp was held virtually from December 31 until January 3. Daily workshops and evening events were posted for registrants to plan their time at camp.  More information is here.  The schedule is still online at https://tinyurl.com/HarmonySched.

Thanks very much to the Camp Harmony committee, to all the volunteers, and to everyone who attended!
