It’s a fall tradition in the Sammamish Valley to take advantage of the apple harvest and make juice. This year, the Sammamish Valley Grange presents ‘Juice the Harvest,’ Wednesday, October 4th, 7 p.m., at the Grange Hall in Woodinville. The evening showcases not only apples but our other, very popular fruit—the grape. Two of our local residents and Grange members, Sylvia Castro and Tom Quigley, are bringing their vintage presses and plan on sharing their knowledge of the process.
The Greater Seattle Choral Consortium is proud to announce our third Seattle Sings Choral Festival to be held on October 12, 13 and 14 at Seattle First Baptist Church. The GSCC is a non-profit service organization which provides advocacy, support, resource sharing, and outreach to more than sixty choruses throughout the Puget Sound region. In keeping with our mission and vision, the Consortium is proud to gather together 35 of our member choirs in a three-day event of public performances.
