Pickin' 'n Grinnin'
We just returned from our annual "Seniors Week" at Salamonie Reservoir. I have posted about this beautiful park several time in the past, a couple of these articles may be seen here and here. In addition to many other people, our club had thirty-eight representatives present.
Tuesday evening, the Scott Family Musicians led us in singing of gospel songs and hymns. What a great time we had!
On Wednesday afternoon, this group set up again and had a jam session, singing and playing many old western tunes, as well as some popular rock from the Carl Perkins era! Several people from various spots in the park wandered in to enjoy the music.
Wayne Scott played string bass, his wife, Sylvia was on violin. Eleanor Scott Cole was on keyboard, and her son, Richard played violin and guitar. Richard's wife, Debbie played flute. Margo Scott Rose also played keyboard, and her husband, Al played guitar. On Tuesday, Rachel Herring played keyboard, too, and Fred Wandrei joined the group on alto sax. Mary Scott Johnson was a sparkling, enthusiastic leader in song.
A little jammin' is bound to lift one's spirits!
