Lovers of accordion music ALWAYS Welcome!
You are invited to bring your accordion and your friends to an afternoon of accordion music.  We sign in to play at 1:15 and have limited performance slots available.  Young players are always guaranteed a slot. RSVP to Doris if you know you will be there.  Prepare knowing that our guests have come for the program.  Limit the set up time required. Play 2 of your favorite selections or one lengthy piece.  Players will not exceed 7 minutes for their performances.  There will be a raffle whose proceeds benefit our youth scholarship fund, light refreshments, and visiting.  Remember to join us, just for the fun of it!
For information contact Doris Osgood at 503-357-0417.
