LIVING VOICES PERFORMANCE
January 28th; 2 p.m. Bromley Room
“Living Voices combines dynamic solo performances with archival film and sound, turning history into a moving and personal journey.”
The Program – North West Passages
“Northwest Passages tells the story of the development of the Pacific Northwest, focusing primarily on the years between 1880 and 1920. It is an examination of forces that pulled people here from regions throughout the United States and the world, the dreams they hoped to fulfill, the realities they encountered, and the established communities of people who were affected by this great influx . . . The story follows a family’s growth in America as they celebrate both Swedish and American holidays, build a new life, and struggle against prejudice toward immigrants.” Rachel Atkins, Script Writer

A gift basket is being put together as a door prize for one (1) lucky attendee at the April 14th seminar. Its theme is “genealogy toolbox for research” and the creator, Merilee Mulvey, hopes to fill it with useful items any beginning or intermediate genealogy geek can use! Some items already included are two cd’s and paper copies of various forms useful for research; a laminated ‘quicksheet’ on citing online historical sources; a book on the Lewis & Clark trail; an atlas of the Civil War; plenty of miscellaneous writing tools, note stickers, and two sizes of notebooks for the researcher to jot down notes.
Merilee is looking for a few more “new or like-new” items that SGS members may have at hand and would want to contribute. If you feel you have something suitable to contribute, please bring it to the January meeting so Merilee can see if it fits with the basket theme. Merilee will bring the basket to the January meeting for folks to see the contents.
Thank you to everyone for helping with the SGS seminar plans.
