The Pantone color of the year is Ultra-Violet. Our word for the year is optimism.
I can’t help but feel that great things are in store this year, and I am willing to wear the purple to prove it.
We have a festival almost every month of 2018, with more fun stuff filling in the calendar every day.
For me, the best thing about ukulele is CONNECTION. I hope that I get the chance to connect with you in 2018: come to an event, send a message, write a letter, read an article. I am OPTIMISTIC that we can make the world a better place by CONNECTING!
