Former band parent Cheree Gallant has opened a wonderful business in Mason called Painting With a Twist. Patrons enjoy a two-hour painting class and come out with their own masterpiece!  You can even bring your own beverages (adult beverages, if you are of age) and snacks to enjoy during the session. The Lakota East Upbeat Club will partner with them on Sunday, February 10 at 2:00pm where we will create ”Tree of Light.”  The best part of all this creative fun?  Painting With a Twist will donate about 40% of the proceeds back to Upbeat!  Please sign up at their website:  www.paintingwithatwist.com/events/ViewEvent.aspx?eventID=100757.  Space is limited, so you’ll want to sign up early!

Please Note: The next Upbeat meeting will be Tuesday, January 22nd at 7:30 in the Lakota East Band Room.The change in the schedule is because the typical meeting day is the night before Honor Band weekend and a four day break.  Everyone is welcome!
