Evening moves into music and song around a campfire,

First Wednesday Song Circle
The EFS Song Circle for July will be
on Wednesday, July 2nd from 7:00-9:00
at the home of Lee, at 712 S. 37th St. in Springfield.
Bring your copy of Rise Up Singing.
If you want to share a song to sing that is not in that book,
bring at least 12 copies of a lyric sheet that also has the chords.
We always welcome anyone who brings a stringed instrument
such as a guitar, banjo, mandolin,
to provide gentle chordal context and rhythm.
Not a performance and no worries or inhibitions with this group!
Just a bunch of nice and jolly folks
who like to laugh, and who like to sing songs in the evening after supper.
You may bring a snack to share, but okay if not.
We always have plenty.
