    Come join in on the Third Friday Ukulele Jam! Bring your ukulele, music stand, and be ready to sing and play! We sit around and play and sing a bunch of songs-- whatever we feel like. It's helpful to bring the "Rise Up Singing" and "Rise Again" songbooks if you have them as we often sing out of these books. A few minutes of basic instruction is provided if we have newbies, so don't be shy, and loaner ukes are available. Come to our weekly Monday classes for slower practicing and learning. Folks are also welcome to come and join in on the singing and don't have to play an instrument. $5-20 suggested donation; bring a snack to share if you like; no one turned away for lack of funds. We'll be in the "Fireside Room" on the second floor. Go through the wooden gate on 1606 Bonita, and up the stairs on the left, and follow the sounds of ukulele strumming. NOTE: The building for the Uke Jam is on 1606 Bonita, BEHIND the big Fellowship Hall that's on the corner of Cedar and Bonita.
