Jubilee! Jam!
…Sunday, March 1st at 12:45 pm
Ever want to hang out a bit longer after the Celebration?  Spend some more time with other Jubilants? Would you like to explore a drum/music jam where you can rock it together and also drop into some softer, sweeter moments?  If so, then bring a drum, shaker, bell, flute, guitar, accordion (wait… maybe not) and let’s see what a Jubilee! Jam! might generate. Feel free to bring snacks, too! The Jam will be led by Daniel Barber. Join in the fun!
