January Dean's Message
Happy New Year!
I hope you had a wonderful Christmas season at church and with family and friends, and had some time to relax. 2019 has lots of promise in the Lexington AGO, and I'm looking forward to spending it with you!
Our January event will be a pleasant evening with friends for our Twelfth Night Party at Larry Sharp's home in Winchester on Saturday, January 5th, beginning at 6:00pm. You can find his address in the yearbook or can contact him directly by phone or email if you need directions. No need to bring anything, just come and enjoy yourself!
Our February program is our Pedals, Pipes, and Pizza event for young piano students. It has been several years since we have had this program, and I'm looking forward to bringing it back. This event is especially meaningful to me as it was how I was introduced to the Lexington AGO chapter when I was in high school. If you know a middle or high school piano student that would be interested in attending, I hope you encourage them to join us. A registration form can be found on our website and can be sent to me by mail or email when completed.
I hope to see you at one of our events soon!
