November 9 is World Freedom Day and November 25 is Thanksgiving Day, so bring or request your favorite songs of freedom or gratitude, or any other songs! We'll go around the room as many times as we can, giving everyone a chance to request a song (or just pass) during each round.
If you wish to request particular songs, it's helpful if you let us know in advance using the registration form linked above.
Wendy Lanxner will lead songs with guitar accompaniment, and any participant may lead any song, a cappella or self-accompanied.
If this will be your first use of Zoom, go to https://zoom.us, click on " Sign Up, It's Free " and follow the prompts (entering your email address when asked for "your work email"). Do this ahead of time so that you'll be all set to "join the meeting" when it's time to do so. Information about getting started with Zoom is at https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/categories/200101697.
If you installed Zoom on your Windows or Mac computer before October 11, go to zoom.us/download to download and install Version 5.8.1 of Zoom Client for Meetings before you want to join any Zoom session. (Version 5.8.0, released September 23, is the latest for iOS, Android or Linux.) For a smartphone or tablet, update the Zoom app from your App Store (iOS update may be delayed a few days) or equivalent source.
Join us on November 17 via Zoom. Especially if you're just getting started with Zoom, please try to join the Zoom session 5 or 10 minutes before 1 p.m. so that we can help with any technical issues before the session begins.
