Modified Schedule – PXX Rehearsal 3 – January 23

In deference to the current weather challenges we are experiencing and keeping everyone’s health and safety foremost in our planning, we will utilize an adjusted rehearsal schedule on January 23. We will begin at 7:30 PM, take no break and end by no later than 9:00 PM. That will help get folks on their journeys home before it gets too late. It will be chilly outside but warm inside as we continue our efforts on the PXX play list. Be Well and Be Warm.
