“Each Thursday we meet at The Crossroads, an assisted living facility in the Minneapolis area. Many of our ‘groupies’ live there and arrive in various modes of transportation. Some are elders that come almost week come rain or snow; many with a cane or walker. Most have their own Bluegrass Fake Book and a few even bring a music stand and sing along with us.

For the most part, we are all retired and novice pickers. … at 87 I am generally the oldest in the room!

If I had not attended your Banjo Camp and your Bluegrass Jamming Camp, I would not be able to give back to these fellow Seniors!

I thank you!

Thank you, Bill, for this report and 45 photos you sent! You are a fortunate man and I am fortunate to know you.

Thanks,
