Hello, and Happy New Year!
I hope everyone has had a wonderful holiday season with family, friends, and of course, music! I personally had a great Christmas present with the completion of the additions and renovations to our organ at Southern Hills UMC for the first Sunday of Advent, which has been gone since April of 2018.
2020 is going to be an exciting year in the Lexington AGO as we celebrate our 75th anniversary. Our Executive Committee is already busy planning some great events for this milestone during our 2020-21 program year, so I hope you'll be a part of it.
Our first program this year is a potluck meal at First Presbyterian Church on January 31 at 6:30pm, followed by a presentation on music library software by Tina Wagoner. The chapter will provide fried chicken, so bring your favorite side dish and we'll enjoy a relaxing and casual evening together. Please RSVP to me at email@example.com (or call or text) no later than January 24 so I can make sure we have enough chicken. I hope to see you there!
