We’re Back

Hello and welcome back to our site…

After a much needed  break at Christmas and Surviving the summer holidays break we are back in full swing.

All classes are back to normal.

Lake Munmorah is now at a new at New Location

The Beach House or Colongra Bay Hall… just a few seconds from the old class at the “Bowlo” we are now positioned at the end of Colongra Bay road to the Lakes Edge at the Community Hall or as we say the Beach House.

It is a fantastic location and wonderful facilities including a big kitchen, huge hall and great facilities, also with fabulous BBQ facilities where we often put on a BBQ for our members after class.

We are there every Monday from 10.30am-12.30pm. Morning tea is provided with beautiful views and access to the Lake. A gentle sea breeze flows through the huge double doors as we serenade the black swans as they drift past us on the Lake.

New work books are now available and new and exciting performances each week.

We are off to Anna Bay (One mile beach)  in late March for our ukulele “Woodstock”  weekend with a “Beatles Trivia night”, Square dancing and jamming fun.

Off to Darwin in June for the Mandorah Ukulele Festival..stand by for further details.

Plus preparations for our own festival in September….(last weekend in September)

Last weekend we enjoyed a fabulous weekend at the Blue Mountains Festival.

We  are as keen as mustard to embrace 2015 with ukulele fun and laughter.

All new members welcome.

As quoted ” The Ukulele”

A mind altering instrument with the potential to induce joy, happiness, memories, bliss, merriment and mirth. Ask your doctor if the ukulele is right for you. Common side effects may include uncontrolled toe tapping, swaying from side to side, smiling, off key singing and dancing!
