Strum With Us
Playing the ukulele is one of the fastest growing crazes not only in The Villages but in the country. On January 30, 2020, we moved to our new location: Everglades Rec Center. Singers come to the mic to sing but everyone plays as music is shown on the screen for all to see. No need to worry about hitting a wrong note: with so many ukuleles no one will know. Besides, how many balls did Tiger hit before he won a tournament? Come wearing a frown and leave wearing a smile.
See you Thursday at Everglades Rec Center.
