I had the great pleasure of hosting the MBSI Southern California Chap-
ter Meeting last weekend. The weather turned nice, and there was a
great turnout. There was a large Mart of music-related items, includ-
ing a crank organ, music boxes, rolls, piano chair, books, clocks, T-
shirts, CD's, and novelties.
Those who attended seemed to enjoy the instruments in the collection
and had a good time. There were visitors from New York, Detroit,
Florida, and one other state that has now slipped my mind.
If you do not belong to a local chapter of AMICA, MBSI, or COAA and
don't attend their meetings and rallies, you are missing out on a great
deal of fun and interaction. I love showing my instruments.
