We hope you are well and enjoying the springtime. Our lives have picked up a bit after over a full year of not much going on in the way of public offerings.
Please check out the events below to see details about Celebrate the Beat, our Yard Sale, Women’s Drumming with Arlyn, Boy’s Backpacking trips with David, an Embodying Rhythm Playshop, and the 2021-2022 World Music in Paradise Concert Series line-up.
We’ve also been busy with starting this year’s garden. If you are local and would like some veggie starts to plant in your garden, please let us know or come by the yard sale, as we have extras.
We have missed you and hope to see you soon.
