December: No rehearsal

(In the above dates, June 21 and August 2 are dates we have scheduled for concerts at Roseville's Central Park, so if the weather cooperates, we'd only need to get in to load equipment. But if it's stormy, as it was for one concert date in 2010, we'd like to present the concert in the community room so that the guest performers who've worked hard on songs to perform with us will get a chance to be videotaped on shown on public access TV.)
