They say as you get older, time accelerates. I guess that is true because it's February already. It really seems like yesterday we were saying goodbye to our Eliot friends on New Year's Day. Part of it is we have been very busy. That is always a good thing.
We enjoyed another great Seabeck Celtic Arts concert on Monday. Performers from the U.S., Cape Breton, Canada and Scotland wowed the audience with their incredible talent. I saw many toes tapping and heard a few yelps during the show. I just love sharing our groups with Seabeck community members.
John White, Facilities Director, has a full month under his belt as the person in charge of the grounds and maintenance. He is starting to make some changes in policies and procedure and we are on track to a bright future.
John Loveless, Maintenance Director, has given up day to day responsibilities and will fully retire on April 1st after exactly 28 years of service. Please join us on March 26th at 5:00 pm in our Dining Room as we say goodbye. It will be a fun party honoring his long tenure at Seabeck.
We're gearing up to kick off the Pines Capital Campaign. The first event will be the afternoon of April 30th at the Pacific Towers in Seattle. We will be hosting a great celebration that will include our Annual Meeting and the unveiling of the New Pines design. FareStart will cater the party. I hope you can join us!
We have a bunch of bagpipers and drummers in right now. When they leave, the next two groups are harpists and then a high school jazz band takes over the campus. Quite a musical way to start our year!
