The First Saturday Series Returns

The First Saturday Series Program returns – on the patio!
COVID really put the lid on our popular First Saturdays Program but we are so excited to announce that on Saturday August 6th at 10.15 AM we are able to present on the patio the Cypressaires Barbershop Chorus. 
The event is FREE as all our First Saturday events are, and will include a brief history of the Barbershop Singing movement, a little comedy, and a lot of fabulous singing! We hope you can join us.

Welcome Mike Cobb and Lisa Allison

We are thrilled to announce that Mike Cobb and Lisa Allison have been elected as our new President and Vice President respectively. Mike and Lisa bring so much fresh energy and enthusiasm to our board and we are so lucky to have them! Cynthia Hertlein who has served as President for over 10 years has generously agreed to be our temporary Treasurer until we find a permanent member. If anyone has book-keeping and Quickbooks experience and would like to join our vibrant group and incredible library, get in touch with the us at
