Happy New Year!
As we look back on 2016, we can't help but be grateful to all our wonderful guests, incredible staff and awesome Board. We are truly fortunate to have those three things in place as we move into 2017. This year will be another great one for Seabeck. Bookings continue to grow and the campus gets better every day. We will start our 103rd year of operation this June and there is no reason not to expect it to be our best to date!
We have some events coming up that you might find interesting:
January 26th from 12:00-4:00 pm
Fred Just Seabeck History Book Signing Party in our Lobby
January 30th at 7:30 pm
The Seabeck Celtic Concert in the Meeting House
March 26th at 3:00 pm
John Loveless, Maintenance Director, Retirement Party in the Dining Room
April 30th 2:00 pm
Seabeck Annual Meeting and Pines Kickoff Party at Pacific Tower in Seattle
We will have separate emails going out about many of these events, but I wanted to give you a little warning about the dates. The Seabeck Celtic Concert is an amazing array of world class pipers, fiddlers, piano players, singers and dancers. Sometimes all these skills are embodied by one person! Please email or call the office if you are interested in attending. We often have rooms available that night, so let us know if you need one.
The Spruce refresh is complete with new tile and fixtures in the bathrooms. A couple of rooms in Reeser and the Juniper Meeting area will get new flooring in the next two weeks. Madrona #1 also got a bathroom face-lift It never seems like we get enough time in December to complete everything we want to do.
Do you have free time and want to help Seabeck? Because space is becoming so limited on the weekends, the days of a campus wide work party may be over. That doesn't mean we can't do things on campus. I envision having smaller projects ready to go, so whenever someone wants to volunteer and the building is open, we can do it. Just give me a call or email and we will find a time to have you come volunteer. I have projects in mind that can be done any time. Let me know when you would like to come out here and we will select a project together. I will also start sending emails out asking for people to help on certain days. I did that last month and we had three people come and help us fold letters. We had a great time! Thanks Arnie, Jan and Kurt!
I wish you a happy and safe 2017!
