The Gold Country Strummers are a group of mostly ukelele players who meet every Monday, from 10am – noon at Auburn Leaf & Bean (1425 Lincoln Way, in Old Town Auburn) to learn ukelele, improve their skills, or just have fun!  All of their songs, with chords for standard, baritone and left-handed ukes, along with a list of songs for the month, are on their website at  Join us!

Open Community Drum Circle (at the Stone Circle, northeast side of campus)
