Marilyn Jetty Swim Strummers
Thank you for visiting our website to find out how you can join the MJS Strummers! Joining this fun-loving group is not only a fabulous way to network and meet with wonderful like-minded people, but you will help raise valuable funds for the Cancer Council of SA.
As a member, you are not obliged to attend every fund raising event, however, it would be great if you could come along to as many as possible, to really give our numbers a boost. Our intention is to have a large pool of ukulele wielding Marilyns, to ensure there is a rock solid group in attendance when we have an exciting gig.
