Memorial sing-along for Margie Wade – videorecording now online

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 wanted 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.  The memorial took place via Zoom on Sunday, January 24.  A videorecording is available here .  The passcode is E9^p4i8q .
