A Message from Chuck

February was a very musical month here on the campus. We started the month with two weeks of the Celtic Arts Foundation bagpipers, drummers, and fiddlers. The day they left a group of folk harpists spent the weekend. We ended the month with the Roosevelt High School Jazz Band filling the buildings with their incredible music. In between, we hosted many other groups doing quieter things. We are lucky to be able to sit here and have the whole world come visit us. March will bring warmer rain and many more groups.
 
Along with our normal array of guest groups, we will host a series of events in March. We are doing a spaghetti feed to raise money to send a local elementary school to Camp Colman for Outdoor Education. It's kind of neat to help send kids to our sister facility. We were both started by the Colman family early last century. We will also host a Seabeck Community Club and a public forum for our two State Representatives. We do these events for free to help give back to the community. The end of this month will also feature the John Loveless Retirement Party. It will be held on March 26th at 5:00 PM in our Dining Room. I hope you can come say bon voyage to John after 28 years of service to Seabeck as the Maintenance Director.
 
Please save the afternoon of April 30th for a Seabeck special event. We are holding a celebration of Seabeck at Pacific Tower starting at 2:00 PM. FareStart will cater the event. We will review the last year and finally share the plan for the new Pines building. Don't miss this unique opportunity as Seabeck comes to Seattle.

You can RSVP for either events at seabeck@seabeck.org or 360-830-5010.
 
Thanks,
Chuck

Seabeck Welcomed the Puget Sound Folk Harp Society

After having the bagpipers here for 2 weeks, it was a big change listening to the sound of harps. The group is new to Seabeck after their retreat venue closed. They all seemed to love Seabeck and will be coming back in 2018, sharing the campus with the Celtic Arts Winter School.
