We are starting up in-person sing arounds, but Golden Link will still be hosting virtual sing-arounds on Zoom.

Virtual sing arounds actually provide some advantages over in-person sing arounds as well. We‘ve seen participation from people around the United States and around the world. Even for people who live close by, sometimes travel to our in-person sing arounds can be an impediment to attending, especially on work nights. So, due to the success of the current Zoom sing arounds, we plan to continue the virtual sing arounds in addition to the in-person sing arounds even when things return to normal. This would allow many more people to participate than we see in our in-person sing arounds.

Jul 12 (Tue): virtual sing around, Leader: Tim Rybinski
Jul 19 (Tue): Theme: Love won or lost, Leader: Vern Lindberg

COVID Policy:
Proof of vaccination required; masks are optional.

Some observations on the current state of COVID from Roland and Janine Tebeau-Jemerson, both retired nurses:
“We’re encouraging masking although not requiring it knowing that the new variants are highly transmissible, it’s being compared to measles. Vaccines are playing very little in the spread or prevention but decrease the severity of the illness. From what we’re reading, BA.4 &BA.5 are the big concern now. Looks like it‘s predicted to peak in mid to late July”.

We open up a "room" on Zoom at 6 pm Pacific Time every Saturday evening. We start singing at 6:30 pm and we keep it going until the last person leaves. Feel free to come in anytime, and stay as long as you like. We run it kind of like a physical song circle. Everyone who wants to can sing once, and then we’ll do another round, and just keep going around as long as you like. Of course, it is totally fine to just listen and some people do. For more information, go to the heading ‘Song Circles‘ on this drop down menu.
