Lois Hole Library Circle

This circle has been cancelled. The library has program commitments this year that do not allow them to reliably and regularly host this circle this year. We appreciate the courtesy they showed us last year and look forward to playing in this venue in the future.

Thanks LOIS HOLE LIBRARY!
