Ukulele Workshop - Eugene Oregon

I will be doing a workshop for the Ukulaneys ukulele group in Eugene from 7 to 9 pm. It is being held at the Hilyard Community Center at 2580 Hilyard St in Eugene. Please get there early so we can have a start at 7 pm sharp. There is a small admission fee (I think it is $5).
