Music Around the Fairway

Dave Parker

What do you do when everyone is under orders to shelter at home? Jay and Linda Vandenbree came up with “music around the fairway.” Jay sent out an email to everyone that had patios facing hole no. 2 north asking for one favorite song from each household. He then put together a 2.5-hour playlist. Songs requested included some songs that were relevant to the times like “Lean on Me,” “We Are the World,” and “Don’t Stand So Close to Me,” and no playlist is complete without “Freebird.” Jay, the guru of everything electronics, set up his speaker on his back patio and fired up the music for all those sitting on their patios to enjoy. On a beautiful Sunday afternoon, the music was a wonderful way for neighbors to sit back and enjoy friendship from a distance and allow music to take them to a different place!
