2020-21 Chapter Programs  

Fall Organ Crawl

October 3, 2020

Greetings NHAGO Members and Friends,
 
  The Fall season is upon us and that can mean only one thing for the NH-
AGO…organ crawl time!  This year we have a wonderful lineup of instruments and locations for a successful program.  We hope you will consider joining us for this annual tradition.  But before we dig into the event details, we need to briefly discuss our Covid-19 precautions.  As always, we want to ensure your safety and the safety of others.  If you decide to participate, we ask you to RSVP by responding to this email.  This will allow us to determine the size of the group and plan accordingly.  Additionally we ask the following…
 
1.  Masks are required when indoors.  If you don’t have one, we will provide one.
 
2.  Hand sanitizer must be used before playing an instrument.  We will provide this as well.
 
3.  Physical distancing of at least 6 feet must be observed both indoors and outdoors (exceptions for couples/families).
 
4.  If you have any symptoms of Covid-19 or have been potentially exposed, we ask that you stay home.
 
5.  This event is open to members of the Guild and Friends of the Chapter only.
 
If you arrive for the event and refuse to adhere to the above guidelines, we will respectfully ask that you not participate.  Additionally, we will have a designated individual who will monitor and gently enforce adherence to these rules.  I’m sure with a spirit of charity, compassion, and kindness from us all, we will be successful in mitigating the spread of the virus and ensure a positive (pardon the pun) organ crawl experience.
 
…with that being said, here is the lineup!
