In Case You Didn't Know...

As most of you are aware, the Scruggs Opry House has slowly come to a halt. We'd like to thank
those of you who regularly supported the Opry House and our efforts to promote bluegrass music in a family-friendly, wholesome environment. We hope you will continue to seek opportunities to support bluegrass music and not let it become a "thing of the past". When you have the chance, please encourage young singers and musicians to continue to play and appreciate this type of music.... if young people do not keep it going, it will slowly fade with the passing of the older generation. Our best to each of you ! Sincerely, Anthony & Kathy Scruggs and Family.

August JAM in Stowe Park

We're planning to meet at Stowe Park on MONDAY AUGUST 2nd for a JAM SESSION.
The last one was really well-received and everyone had a good time. Plan to start at 7:00pm
and go til about 9:00pm. All bluegrass musicians are invited to join in ...beginner - to - advanced
welcomed ! Remember: Bring a lawn chair, some cold water, and maybe the insect repellent.
From Hwy 74, come into Belmont down Main Street and pass by the Scruggs Opry House location
on your left. Continue down Main Street and cross the railroad tracks. Stowe Park is there on
the right. (There are modern restroom facilities on the grounds of the park for your convenience.)
Hope to see YOU there !

At this point, the plan for the July 5th Bluegrass Musicians' JAM SESSION is that
it will be held at Stowe Park in downtown Belmont. If you come down North Main Street
and pass by the Opry House location on your left, continue through Belmont and the
park will be on your right after you cross over the railroad tracks. We plan to begin at
7:00 pm as usual. Bring a lawn chair ! It will probably be pretty warm, so bring some
cold water with you as well ! (And maybe the insect repellent !! )

MAY Jam Session.....

Hi folks ! The next BLUEGRASS JAM SESSION will be on Monday MAY 3rd from 7:00 to 9:00pm. The door opens at 6:45pm. There is no admission charge on JAM nights. All
musicians are invited, regardless of skill level or experience ! And...if you play more than
one instrument, feel free to bring more than one. ALSO....a lot of you may already have your
gardens fully planted, but if not, be sure to go by and see our friend Doug Ivey at the Warlick
School in Ranlo, NC. He and his horticulture students have tomato and pepper plants ready
to go, as well as hanging flower baskets and other goodies ! You can check out the chickens
and the rabbits they take care of as well. These kids mix their own potting soil using the
compost their animals produce - it's quite a set up ! They're trying to raise money for their
horticulture program and they could really use your support !

Please pray....

Many of you know local bluegrass musician Gray Drum, who is a student at South Point.
We ask you to remember Gray, his dad, brother, and family in the recent loss of his mother,
June Drum. Anthony worked with June at one point, and we've been happy to get to know
Gray over recent years. June always had a great sense of humor and she will be missed.
Thank you.
