Her song “All My Life” was ranked as one of the top 5 most popular wedding songs by People Magazine and won the Grammy for Linda Ronstadt & Aaron Neville as the Best Vocal Performance by a Duo or Group. Karla’s album “All My Life” produced a Billboard Magazine review that sums up Karla’s legacy as a performer and writer: “Long before Alanis and Jewel, there was a breed of singer/songwriters whose earthly anthems of soul-searching, heartache and joy touched souls in a way few can muster today”.

They have a reasonable Happy Hour special menu priced from $4.00-$7.50 with the purchase of a beverage. There will be no additional fees for members or non-members tonight. Everyone enjoyed the program we had last year called “Show and Tell” so we decided to make it an annual event and do it again this year. where members share their hobbies, interests, collections, their work, their travels, etc. with other SNC members. You may have a special collection of stamps, coins, dolls, stuffed animals, baseball cards or even post cards. You may enjoy Karaoke, dancing, running, hiking, walking, biking, photography, playing an instrument and may want to tell us how you got involved in these interests. Maybe you enjoy taking classes in school and are going for a particular degree or you are taking adult educational classes, dance lessons, etc. We will need you to call Phyllis or Rosalie by Friday, September 27 and let us know if you would like to participate so we can figure out how much time to allow all our members. We will start at five minutes and may increase your time. You can bring samples of your collections and hobbies with you to share or just talk about them. It is your choice. Perhaps members can be encouraged to start new hobbies and find out some things about our members that you didn’t know previously. Please remember to invite other single people you know to this event and our meetings and activities, as we always like to increase the size of our club. Guests can come to a few events and then hopefully they will join our club. Hosts of events are encouraged to speak to guests that come on a regular basis to join our club as our dues are very reasonable (only $25.00 a year).
