Happy New Year, SMTMD members!

The January Newsletter, that all have been breathlessly waiting for…

Many thanks to our outgoing board members: Lois Stephenson and Phil Camero who have contributed their time and energy and have done a super job helping to bring many wonderful music and dance events to our community and our membership.  

Welcome to the New Board of Directors: President – Michael Smith, VP – Chris Dudley, Treasurer – George Milcetich, Secretary – Cathy Kennedy, Members at Large: Christian Jewell, Rita Holden, and Elaine Szymkowiak.

There are many others who contribute their time and efforts to the various tasks involved with keeping our organization on the rails and running smooth. Thanks to all!

Notice!! It is snow season, check the website for cancellations before heading out to Chaptico.


Jody Marshall and Friends in concert was a really cool show, but if you were compelled by circumstances to do other less interesting but necessary things, despair not. We have another concert lined up for February the 23rd, at Christ Church parish hall, in Chaptico. The Blue Rhythm Boys DuoTom Mitchell and Jim Stephanson are going to regale us with their very lively repertoire of swing, blues, gypsy jazz, and more. Check the concert page for more info.

Contra dance:  Kim Forry will be calling, with Elgin Perry and the usual suspects of the Southern Maryland Open Band delivering snappy jigs, dizzying reels, and sweet waltzes. Bring a friend! No wait….bring two friends! All you can eat ice cream! (While supplies last.)

The next open Mic date is January 25th, 7:30 – 10:00PM

Volunteers Needed! Bored? Looking for a way to use your time and talent? Contact a board member; we will at least find a way to use your time. We always need help with events.

 Until Next month,
