A big THANK YOU to the welcome wagon also from me - earlier this year it was the first time for me to become a member of a forum and I was a little bit insecure and did not know how all this would work. But after all these kind welcomes one can only feel good! Thank you very much! flower

@ken-longfield The Welcome Table link worked for me (on my iPad mini running Safari). 

Thanks, FOTMD Welcome Wagon!  Y'all help keep this one of the friendliest places.  <3

Yes, a big THANK YOU to the welcome wagon here. 

I think Rod Westerfield welcomed me within hours of my first joining. It certainly was a warm greeting and took the nervousness out of joining a new site about an instrument I barely knew.

Lisa, I get a 404 error when I click on the link in your blog for "Welcome Table." BTW, this is one of my favorites.

Thank you Glenda, I'm glad you've found that blog helpful.

I think of FOTMD as being a kind of 'welcome table' for mountain dulcimer players of all persuasions. That's why our Welcome Wagon team of Greeters listed below are such a big part of every new member's first impression in being welcomed here by new friends. grphug

In light of Thanksgiving also approaching, and as part of giving thanks to our Welcome Wagon team, this seems like a good place to link to my Blog Post about the old traditional song/hymn "I'm Gonna Sit at the Welcome Table":

https://dulcimer-noter-drone.blogspot.com/2009/11/welcome-table.html

Included in my blog post is the lyrics and free dulcimer TAB I made for playing it. I included two dulcimer tab parts- one for melody and one for harmony. Can be played in DAA fretting the melody string only. Perhaps it's a fitting song to play for your friends or family during the Thanksgiving and harvest/holiday season!

On behalf of all site members, I just wanted to give a hug of appreciation to our wonderful VOLUNTEER Welcome Wagon here on FOTMD.

Our "Greeters" post warm welcome comments on the profile page of every new member who joins the site. They do this simply because they know how good it feels to receive a friendly post or two on your page when you first join.  Our greeting team puts the "friends" in Friends of the Mountain Dulcimer, and they do it out of their own kindness.

I'd like to add that there are no special requirements for joining them as a FOTMD "Greeter"- you just have to love people and make a friendly welcoming comment on new members' profile pages with some regularity- whenever you feel you can. If you'd like more info just catch FOTMD Moderator Jim Fawcett any morning or evening in the ChatRoom here on FOTMD.  To open the Chat, click the blue "quote bubble" button at bottom right of any page on the site.

Let's all give our thanks to our site's current Welcome Wagon Team!:
