YAPI June Notes
Thank you to all the performers who came out to June YAPI. It was great to have a visit from ex-Wimberley-ite, now Florida resident, Taraka Larson, who brought local YAPI veteran, Ellen Flocke and Michael Collins, also from Florida. Thank you to the folks at Idlewild who helped roadie the equipment.

You can support the YAPI community event by:

  1. Coming out to YAPI to perform September 1 (if you are 19 and under)
  2. Encouraging or bringing a young performer to come perform at September YAPI
  3. Coming to YAPI to listen to the performers and being a supportive audience member

YAPI June News
There will be no YAPI in July or August. However, YAPI will resume in September. See you then and bring a friend.

If anyone would like to volunteer to help with YAPI, or to sponsor an ad somewhere, please contact Brenda at BFreed1@earthlink.net or 512-847-1022. It would be cool if there could be one helper and one sponsor per month.

If you are reading this and would like to be added to the YAPI email list, or if you know of anyone who would like to be added to this list, please email your/their name and email address to BFreed1@earthlink.net with “add to YAPI Mailing List” as the subject.
