Pat Bradley assures the Ear that "13 of us, ole gals and one brave gentleman" have been meeting with instructor Elise Chubinski and her assistant, Janet Volchok, at Rollin' Thunder BBQ for an Exploring New Concepts of Retirement Education (ENCORE) ukulele class called 'Tiptoe Through the Tulips with Elise.'"
She said, "Last week we walked out the door and flagged down a passing trolley filled with 'foreigners.' The people loved it! They shot pictures, sang, giggled, yelled out requests (We had to tell them we have a very limited repertoire) and begged us not to get off!"
The other members of this class of musical merrymakers are: Waverlie Warila, Donna Buzzard, Vera Capps, Eileen Thompson, Ruth Jensen, Marilyn gudmundsen, Dick McGann, Claudia Justice, Lee Clinton, Jane Means, Aletha Westerberg (who was absent) and texi carson.
Now the Ear readers know what, according to Bradley, "some of their well-known, longtime community matrons" have been up to. Having a blast, it looks like. For information, or to join ENCORE, call 338-2408.
