Monthly First Monday Gatherings  Have Been Discontinued; Impromptu Tribes Hill Gatherings Encouraged

Monthly First Monday Gatherings nbspHave Been Discontinued Impromptu Tribes Hill Gatherings Encouraged
Hosts Needed

We held monthly gatherings that included a song circle on the first Monday of every month. Sometimes we would change the date to accommodate holidays. They began at 6:30 with dinner prep and music. We served our traditional pasta and salad dinner with potluck additions at 7 pm. After dinner music would continue until about 10:30 with our collaborative song circle that included music makers and music lovers from the Tribes Hill community and newly invited guests. We had respectfully fit into the space offered us with about 20 - 25 people and plenty of acoustic music and song to share.

Although the traditional first Monday gatherings have been suspended the opportunity to host an impromptu gathering of the hosts design, any day of the week, is encouraged.
