Next Week's Meeting

Due to the Thanksgiving holiday, there will be no meeting next week (November 23). Our next meeting is November 30 (online only).


Economic Impact of the Arts, Hip Hop, and Bloodworks NW

President Beth called the meeting to order promptly at 12:30 at the Rainier Club and on Zoom, followed by the day’s opening song, Morning Has Broken,  led by Raymond Tymas-Jones accompanied by Ryan Bunbury on the piano. 
Marsha Mutisi delivered the day’s inspiration reciting the lyrics of Anita Baker’s song, ‘Only for a While’ –  if you are in valley and life is so unkind, you must remember it is only for a while – lose someone you love, for a while you feel alone.
