April Social Event:

Jumpin’ Jazz Band members are encouraged to come out for an evening of great jazz, provided by the ONHB band Two Beats Ahead.  This will be a fun social event for us as a group, and I hope we can reserve at least two tables for JJB.  All proceeds for this annual event go to Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind.  The event takes place the evening of April 4 at Orchard View.   Carpooling is definitely possible.  More information to follow!  Tickets are available through Carol Tenniswood (alto sax with TBA), and online:
