The August backyard dinner and chat at David Vanderlip & Kathy Smith's home was grand. Good weather and a beautiful outdoor location lent themselves to good conversation, reminiscences, talk of what we do, and how and why we do it. Newcomers, old-timers and interested guests yammered until the Disneyland fireworks said it was time to be on our way. Our sincere thanks go to the "Vandersmiths" for their hospitality.

Our September meeting will feature a presentation by Bill Shull, RPT, entitled, "Hot-Rodding Your Client's Vertical," granting us techniques to give our upright piano clients the fullest musical experience that their instruments can grant.

See you there!
