Athens Dulcimers Play At Tennessee Welcome Center

Out and About

This week members of the Athens Dulcimers have been busy (as usual) playing in various places in the area (see photos below). 
Monday: West Side Village Community Center in Athens.
Tuesday: I’m sure some of you were doing some dulcimer freelancing that I didn’t know about.
Wednesday: Limestone Health Facility and the Athens Convalescent Center.
Thursday: Jerry, Louise, and Lou played with the children and their cardboard dulcimers at an elementary school.
Thursday & Friday: Two teams played at the Tennessee Welcome Center, just north of Ardmore on I-65. The Thursday team was lead by Nancy Sweeney, and Friday’s team was lead by Julie Stewart.
Saturday: Madison City Farmers Market.

If you’re ever out and about playing dulcimers feel free to send me photos and I’ll post them.
