Past President
More Jazz
In More Places!

That's the theme for the Jazz Club's 39th Season. As you read this newsletter I hope you see that this "theme" is expressed in many ways and has many interesting meanings!

Before I start to write about our 2018-19 programing, I want to thank Peg Pluto for her leadership as president over the last four years. Her visionary contributions have been many, but at their core Peg has always asked a simple question: “How can we do better?” I hope to continue Peg’s efforts. Fortunately for all of us, Peg will continue to be an active member of the Jazz Club Board.

I also want to thank the Board for their vote of confidence; and to thank them in advance for their continued involvement in all that we do. This is a group undertaking, including our consultants, office manager and amazing member volunteers!
