Ukulele News - The 2019 Ukulele Lesson program is now well under way. There are almost 50 people now signed up for uke lessons across the three lesson groups. Anyone planning to still register/pay online at this stage is asked to firstly contact Di Stephens as some classes are almost full. Ph 0428 742 481 or email email@example.com Ukelicious (the Ukulele performance group of the GAMC) are in the thick of rehearsals in readiness for the Melbourne Ukulele Festival on Sat 16th March, and then the HILLS Festival in Emerald later in May. It has been fantastic to see the continued interest and active participation of members and many new members to the club with the humble ukulele. Thank you to all those who have supported the program over the years and the many more who have joined our ukulele community again for 2019.
Procedures for Emergency Warnings - At this time of the year, many of us are mindful of possible bushfire threats in our vicinity. So we thought we’d outline the GAMC policy should an emergency warning be issued which may affect our club events. This is not only applicable to bushfires, but could also include other emergencies. In the event that a “Watch and Act” Warning or an Emergency Warning is listed for Tyers on a day when GAMC is hosting an event (or for other locations where GAMC may be hosting an event), the club event will be cancelled for that day. In such circumstances, we will endeavour to advise members via email, but recommend that you tune into local ABC radio and/or https://emergency.vic.gov.au for warning updates before leaving home.
