ShoutOut for NERFA & FARM & the Regions Virtual Calendar
by Rob Evanoff
Shoutout to the music community! Let us hear from you! Lockdown Lemonade has been honored to be posting stories of survival, tips for getting through these challenging times and ALL kinds of ways to make lemonade out of the lemons we’ve been handed during the pandemic. We are always on the lookout for more material to share with the community.
Type up your thoughts & feelings, share some laughs you’ve had, some tears you’ve shed, but most of all, let your community know how YOU’VE learned to make your very special brand of lemonade.
Submissions should be 300 words and will be posted based on approval from the Lockdown Lemonade Committee, who might also do a little editing and/or tweaking to help your work to look its best. For guidelines, questions and other submission details, please contact Julie Zipperer at firstname.lastname@example.org or Marlynn Block at email@example.com

FAR-West Campfire: Spring – A Time of Hope, Renewal, and New Life!
The theme for this song circle is all about welcoming spring; so artists and tellers of all genres from near and far — bring along your songs and stories about flowers, hope, renewal, new life … anything that spring means to you. But songs and stories about anything are always welcome. So are folks who just want to listen.
