A belated THANK YOU to let everyone know how amazed, grateful, and overwhelmed we are at the care and work everyone put into making Surround Sound, our record lathe fundraiser, happen. As well, of course, the massive amount of folks who showed up for the day. It was packed, and beautiful. The vibes throughout the day communal and welcoming.

Steven, Derek, and I were all discussing how seemingly effortless putting the whole thing together was. And, of course, that’s not true.  The day went off so smoothly because everyone chipped in the effort and made sure that it could happen. What is true is that each of the musicians, and everyone else helping out, put in a hand, and through out shared efforts we were able to materialize a communing of brilliant people to highlight the skills and souls of so many folks – and that includes everyone who showed up to support too! I am so happy with how things turned out. And I cannot wait to get all the parts together to get the lathe up and running.

So, if everything goes according to plan, we’ll have the lathe up and running by the end of the year. Maybe even just in time for some lathe cut holiday presents.
