Time to Renew Your Membership
One of our most gratifying experiences is hearing from our friends and supporters about how much they enjoy CVBS year-round activities -- the jams, our annual festival, picnics, our blues challenge, and much more. It is especially heartwarming because all of officers and committee members are volunteers. No one at CVBS is paid for anything -- we do it because just like you, we love blues music. You can help us continue our work simply by joining or renewing your membership. Renewal for an entire year is just $15
-- what a bargain!
COVID PANDEMIC FORCES CHANGES TO CVBS EVENTS
5th Annual CVBS Blues Fest -- With great regret, CVBS has decided to cancel its Blues Festival that had been scheduled for June 13. The uncertainty around the entire coronavirus stiuation made it impossible for us to do the necessary advance planning.
Election and Annual Meeting -- We will be moving our annual election to an on-line format to be held in May of this year. We are uncertain as to whether we would even be allowed to meet in person for an election and also concluded that online voting would allow all members to vote whether or not they could meet in-person. We will still hold an annual meeting when circumstances allow -- hopefully later this summer -- and we're gonna make it fun! Stay tuned for details.
Jams -- Our April Jams are canceled for health reasons and because our venues are closed. We hope to resume in May but are unsure whether circumstances will allow. We'll put out a notice as soon as the situation becomes more clear.
