On Mondays, from 6p – close, Schilling & Co Cider House will host a weekly ‘Drinking & Drawing’ fundraiser for the Fremont Arts Council (FAC,) and the Solstice Parade.

For those 21+, come make art while tasting delicious new ciders from Schilling & Co.  For every Schilling Cider purchased, $1 will go to the FAC, a non-profit that produces public performance/celebration art including the legendary Solstice Parade, the luminous Luminata Lantern Walk, the community-based Troll-o-ween, and the upcoming Feast of the Winter Solstice.

The FAC, a nearly-entirely volunteer run organization, struggles to fund its art, particularly as costs increase each year.  Come have fun, draw or make art, drink a cleverly crafted local cider, and contribute to the next FAC art celebration.

For more information, contact the Schilling Cider House at 206/420-7088 or see them on Facebook.

Hear A New Play By Scott Timmons With Play Factory Writer’s Group Series

Kirby Lindsay

On Monday, November 24th, starting at 7p, at the DownStage Theatre, everyone is invited to come hear a dramatic reading of a new play, called ‘Private Conversations’ by Scott Timmons.  As the latest in the Play Factory Writer’s Group Series, this reading will be followed with an organized feedback session where the audience, cast and playwright provide feedback to assist in developing the script for the stage.

In ‘Private Conversations,’ three sisters and their brother return home from their mother’s funeral only to have their father pass away the next day.  As they now set out to settle the estate, the grown children reveal how they have never grown up.  The older sisters conspire to get quick cash from their parent’s passing, while the youngest hunts for male companionship in the midst of the tragedy.  The brother, an attorney, tries to keep things steady while a plumber and gardener add confusion to the situation.

This pay-what-you-can theater experience gives the audience an early look into the development of a new production.  Come share your thoughts, and participate in building a new work.  Find more information on this reading on the Facebook Event page.

Kirby Lindsay

FremontHomeThanksgivingRideNov14evo&Brooks&StoneWayCafeOn Friday, November 21st, starting at 6:30a, Fremonsters who work, live or simply enjoy Fremont will gather for a fun and fundraising ride for FareStart.  Produced by Brooks Sports and evo, this FremontHome Thanksgiving Ride will strengthen and celebrate our community by bringing everyone together, outside, for a healthy bike ride.

Riders will meet, with their bikes, in front of the new Stone Way Café at 6:30a, for fortifications (if needed,) before the group sets off for a casual, sunrise journey to Discovery Park.  Riders are encouraged to bring – or give on-line – a donation to FareStart, a non-profit that provides resources and job training to the homeless in Seattle.

We all spend a lot of time here, and we care about this place.  The FremontHome Thanksgiving Ride will bring together neighbors and co-workers to connect and enjoy a heightened awareness of the people – the community – around us!

Come have fun!

The Bastyr Center for Natural Health, located on Stone Way, has been given a matching gift of $5,000 from Mack Urban, a sustainable construction and property management company responsible for a recent remodel of the Center.

In order to make the most of this generous gift, Bastyr has asked our community to help make the match (pledges can be made on-line.)  Please help double this opportunity by giving to this 501(c)3 non-profit, and spreading the word, and turn this into $10,000 for neighborhood natural and naturopathic health.

Bastyr Center partners with over thirty-three neighborhood clinics, serving both urban and rural patients, and patients that range from children to seniors.  Bastyr University, founded in 1978, is internationally recognized as a pioneer in natural medicine, and its interns and residents, plus its faculty, help Bastyr Center clients lead a more healthy life.
