Have a talent you'd like to share?

We meet monthly at Lawnridge Hall, a historic mansion on the campus of the University Presbyterian Church in Rochester Hills, Michigan.  We aren’t affiliated with the church; we rent this building because it’s such a cool place to play, and has plenty of room for all of us.
