The Catskills Ukulele Meet Up is on a temporary hiatus as we transition from summer to fall schedules. We want to accommodate the kids who are now back at school and are looking toward a Monday night meet up, but will let you know.
Remember, this is a self governing group, so the best way to keep informed is to join The Catskills Ukulele Group Meetup Site, which has a repository of information about free ukulele learning groups at libraries in the area and will include the Town of Ulster Library meet up in its listings, so sign up for notifications.
