There is a new swing dance venue in town. Sunday afternoon (Dec. 6th) starting at 2pm “The Cats Meow” will be playing a Tea Dance at the 5th Avenue Retirement Center for you dancing and listening pleasure. This will be a recurring event on the first Sunday of every month.
Christmas House for needy families will be at Dungeness Community Church Dec. 12 9am to 1pm.
What is Christmas House? Families in the community come and parents select new gifts for their children while the children are assisted in selecting a gift for their parents. Then the gifts are beautifully wrapped and tagged. While here, the families may also enjoy refreshments; crafts; have a family picture taken; and select items from the rummage room over in the chapel. Kids can have their faces painted and play in the bouncy house.
Do you want to make a joyful sound?
Mark your calendars now! “Handel With Care”, a community Sing It Yourself Messiah, with Dewey Ehling as Director/Conductor, instrumentalists and soloists, and Pat Marcy accompanist, will be held on Sunday, December 27, from 3-5 p.m. at Trinity United Methodist Church, 100 S. Blake Ave. in Sequim. Everybody is welcome to join the chorus, and listeners are welcome, too. Voluntary donations will go to Sequim Community Aid.

Celebrated each July in Sequim, Washington
Sequim, Washington is well-known to airline pilots. They call it the “blue hole” – largely because this gorgeous neck of the woods is safely tucked behind the Olympic Mountains – famous for their beauty and glaciers – to the southwest, which protects it from extreme weather patterns.
The City of Sequim (pronounced “S’Kwim”), and the surrounding Sequim-Dungeness Valley, is located on the Strait of Juan de Fuca on the north coast of Washington State near the base of the Olympic Mountains. Sequim is about two hours away from the metropolitan cities of Seattle, Tacoma, and Olympia and is a gateway to the Olympic Peninsula and its numerous tourist attractions.
