RCAC Meeting

March 18, 2023

Submitted by Marlene Meissner

The day began with practice of Moskow Nights, a number that will be performed by some members of the club at the Northwest Accordion Society spring social in Forest Grove on April 23.  Next was music circle, with Jeff Nelson conducting the group on Die Gute Alte Bimmelbahn and Lynn Haldeman conducting Janet’s Waltz  and Play A Simple Melody.

Following music circle, President Fran Maddox made the following announcements:

1)-Welcome to everyone at the meeting.  Heather Cowley from Vancouver was introduced.
            2)-Practice of Moskow Nights is going well.  There is one more practice at the April 8 club meeting.
                                 3)-Reservations for the meeting room can only be made three months in advance.   Because the third Saturday is not available in either April or May, the meetings for those months will be held on April 8 and May 27.  There will be no meeting in June because of the various other accordion events happening in that month (camp, Astoria Scandinavian Festival and the accordion festival in Leavenworth.)
4) As of March, only those who have paid their 2023 dues will be receiving the email newsletter.

Larry McCullough mentioned that he will be performing a concert in the Visitors Center of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints Temple in Lake Oswego at 7:00 on March 27.  All are welcome.
