Welcome Sound

Joan McCullyIn the midst of drought conditions, resulting in water restrictions and smoke and ask from regional fires, Joan McCully brought the welcome sound of rain to the July meeting.

Her rain stick, a souvenir from a recent trip to South America is actually a percussion instrument made from a hollowed out, dried cactus branch.  Filled with small pebbles and capped at both ends, when slightly tilted it makes the beautiful sound of falling rain.
