Full Moon Jammin’ Gatherings Ever been to a “jam session” or maybe you remember the old “Hootnanny” days? People used to make time to get together, see friends, and sit around to play and sing music. The oral traditions of the past are long gone now that we have the information highway, but socializing and learning are still in the forefront of our lives. Come and get experience playing music and meet others by attending music jams at the home of Theresa Ellis, 3230 N. River Drive, Eden. The group “Shades of Grey,” also from the Ogden Valley, have been known to show up at the jams. All are welcome from the amateur down to the novice. Some show up seeking the opportunity to play with a group of musicians, while others simply are content to howl at the summer moon. Okay, if you don’t play or sing, what if you just want to listen? Come anyway; informal and fun is the theme. Families, including kids, are welcome. Drinks, paper plates, utensils provided, and the grill will be fired up. The first gathering of a series will be held Thursday, May 31 on the pickin’ porch out back and it will run from 4:00 to 10:00 p.m. Bring your own meat for barbecue eats. On some calendars, it says the full moon is June 1, but astronomers would tell you it actually starts on May 31. Thursday was chosen so Theresa could be in attendance for the session. It will be workshop style, or plain jamming—depending on who gets there and when. This is for adults and children, beginners and pros, singers and players; all are welcome—listeners, too. There could be small groups, or one large group, depending on how it works out. But however it goes, hopefully it will be a loony great night. Pickers and singers are asked to pay a nominal fee of $10, and Theresa will be available for the six hours for any needed coaching. Full Moon Schedule this summer: 4:0010:00 p.m. Thursday, May 31, Saturday, June 30 (Blue Moon) Monday, July 30, Tuesday, August 28 Paws to Read @ Your Library Kids of all ages are invited to register for this free summer program. There will be seven weeks of great rewards for reading throughout summer vacation along with weekly raffles for tons of fun prizes. The library will also host lots of great events to drive away the dog days of summer. All events are free. Children aged three and older will most enjoy this program, but we will have special story times during each program for all of our youngest pups. Registration is required, but beyond that, all you need is a nose for adventure! For more information, please call the Ogden Valley Branch Library at 754-2220.
