Local music teacher and musical performer Greg Cooney will join us live on zoom to help chase those "stay-at-home blues."  Greg will entertain us with some fun music and show us how to make our own musical instruments at home. The instruments will come in handy as you and your family celebrate the New Year with your own music!  

 

A list of materials you might want to have available are: 

Any clean recyclable items paper towel tubes, cereal boxes, cardboard boxes, paper lunch bags, old metal spoons, paper or plastic plates or cups, plastic water bottles, clean food containers, jars with lids. 

 

Dry rice, beans, small stones, anything that makes a sound when put in a container.  

 

School Supplies Needed are: rubber bands, staples, tape, glue and safe scissors. 

As Greg says, if you drop it and hear a ring bring it with you and some string. 

Don't forget you can decorate your item if you have decorative paper or stickers! 

Basically look around your house for anything that combined with another object will make noise! Greg will be live on zoom and can see what you have in front of you and make suggestions for what you can do with the stuff you have already.  

 

Suitable for all ages even if you have two paper plates and a box of Cheerio's from preschoolers to adults! Program is also good for adults. Ms. Chris will also be participating with an assortment of items. Let's make music together to bring in a happy New Year. 

 

 

The Pentagon is pulling twelve National Guard members from working the Presidential Inauguration tomorrow. The FBI found evidence of "inappropriate" comments and said there is a zero tolerance policy. Army General Dan Hokanson said extremism is not tolerated in any branch of the military       President Trump believes he made America great again during his time in the White House. In his final address to the nation, Trump said his administration extends best wishes and the best of luck to President-elect Joe Biden. He said serving as President has been "an honor beyond description" and an extraordinary privilege.       Democrats aren't wasting any time making requests to President-elect Joe Biden. More than two dozen senators wrote a letter to Biden asking him to use the full effect of the Defense Production Act to fight the pandemic. The group, which was led by Senators Tammy Baldwin and Chris Murphy, believes it would be in America's best interest considering "continued supply chain issues."        Missouri Senator Josh Hawley is putting a hold on the confirmation of Alejandro Mayorkas to be the next Homeland Security Secretary. The Republican took exception to plans by the incoming Biden administration to reform immigration policies. The hold means President-elect Joe Biden will not be able to put his national security team in place as quickly as he had hoped.        The third-biggest U.S. lottery jackpot is on the line tonight.

The hippos are not native to the country and were brought there by kingpin Pablo Escobar in the 1980s. Despite attempts to sterilize the animals, the hippos have gained approval from locals who consider them a possible tourist attraction.
