A free sing-along group meets on zoom Thursdays 7:30-9:00. We used to meet in person at the Chai House. We have a couple of songbooks to help us remember the words which you can order on Amazon if you like the group. What we do is the leader is unmuted, and the rest of us sing along at home. It’s less satisfying than being together but does give that boost that singing familiar music does for the soul. If you are interested, please contact Nancy_Tepperman@yahoo.com, and she will put you on the email list. You can find Nancy’s phone number in the Dispatch if you prefer to call.

I am going to be an author! I am in the middle of writing a book on magic for kids; ages 6-9 yrs, 18,000 words, 100+ pages, illustrated. The book will be published by Rockridge Press and available in August online and at local bookstores across the country. Stay tuned for updates as the book takes shape through the creative process.
I’ve been creating video content: Here’s a routine that I created at home using my phone and video editing software. www.vimeo.com/makephilappear/diversity
Thank you for your support.
The most important thing we should be spreading right now is optimism, positivity and support. Negativity as Zero R.O.I.
Magic & Comedy Dinner Theater will return soon. Stay healthy, stay connected and stay positive. We are all in this together.
