Dear Flutists,

Welcome to the fall in California, where we all enjoy continued perfect weather, open skies and perhaps a little morning dew to keep us a bit cooler.  Thank you to all who have renewed your memberships and joined our new mailing list.  We appreciate your continued support, and the board is continually working on creating many beneficial and memorable events for you.  We have just a few details to share this month, so grab a cup of coffee, or tea, and read on.

Membership Renewals

Please note that as of October 1st, if you are a teacher or a business that has not renewed membership, your teacher or business listing will be removed from the directories. They will be placed back on the list upon receiving your renewal payment. You can become a new member, or renew your membership here.
