Our longtime soundman, Sam Griffin, suffered a debilitating stroke. He's
recovering, but slowly, and with few resources. We who have relied on him so
long -- now he relies on us.
For the Soup and salad benefit dinner, the musicians lined up currently
include Cathy Barton and Dave
Para and some members of the the Irish Thursday Night session group, Lee Ruth,
Kathy Gordon, we hope many others.
Jim Thaxter and other guest callers will be there for the contra dance.
Dave Para and myself are the current music coordinators.
The Mid -Missouri Traditional Dancers (MMTD)
will be there in full force and maybe folks from St. Louis as well. Any
other musicians, you are
most welcome to join in !
We're hoping to make the food a Soup & Salad Pot Luck and those who want can
donate to the cause. Soups should be brought in slow cooker or crock pots that
can be plugged in and kept warm. Desserts are also welcome (although sadly no
real sugar for Sam).
Silent auction; If you would like to donate items for the silent auction
please contact: Lesley Oswald
Drinks: Turner has a Wine beer bar that will be open and half the proceeds
come to Sam for that evening so we would encourage folks to buy from the bar.
Please forward this information to anyone you think needs to know and that
care about out dear friend.
If folks just want to donate and cannot attend, simply
write SAM (in all
caps) on the payee line, and not include any last name.
They could also write them to "Sam's Assistance Money" if they prefer.
If you would like to donate by sending a check, please send it to:
SAM /co Carol Goodnick
