Juke Box Days!

July 6, 2021

Alzheimer Scotland presents Juke Box Days, a reminiscence initiative hosted by Michael White of Screen Memories Scotland, that focuses on the Golden Age of Rock and Roll, basically from 1956 to 1976. A specific year is chosen, and group members can select their own choices of music. As well as the songs themselves, there are memory triggers for social and cultural aspects such as fashion, hairstyles, news events, famous people and food and drink. This sets the context for the songs and the music of the period.
The Transatlantic Jukebox Session this week is on Thursday 8th July 2021 at 4pm with North Carolina.

We want everyone to feel a part of this special event so do please turn your video on in Zoom if you are happy to do that so Nigel and Jen can see you – but keep your mic muted!  

We will also use the chat function to share comments and memories as the event takes place, so come prepared to drop something in if you wish.
 
Dress code is as you wish but feel free to dress up for this occasion – loud ties was one suggestion to take or leave! 

Please join promptly at 7.25pm in time for the programme starting at 7.30pm sharp. The programme will finish around 9pm. 

Saturday 26 June  Sadly ongoing covid restrictions have put paid to plans for a social gathering in person so this will not be going ahead.  

Sunday 27 June – Service at 1030am At the time of sending this email, there are still a few seats available to book in the Church Hall overflow – click here to view the booking page.  

The service will obviously be available to view online in the usual way.   Afterwards, there will be the chance to line West Balgrochan Road (up the side of the park) to wave Nigel and Jen home a short time after the service concludes (taking care to observe current distancing requirements!).  

It will be great to give glory to God and honour Nigel and Jen for their extraordinary contribution to the life of the church and wider community over the past thirty years together.
