In October I'm organizing a family reunion. I'm suggesting that everyone bring a can of food or a gift for a child for Christmas. I explained Hopelink to them and of course it is up to them if or what they bring. I realize I'm getting a jump on Christmas but it never hurts to get an early start. Who knows, I might get some "goodies". We didn't do the back-to-school drive this year. That is something you could always bring. Kids lose things all the time so there is always a need and it would be welcome anytime by Hopelink.
See you at the potluck on the 10th.

WHAT'S NEW AROUND KENMORE?
The Arts of Kenmore presents THE ART OF TEXTILES group exhibit - Kenmore City Hall, September 19 to November 14, 2014
Opening Reception Friday, September 19, 2014, 6:30PM - 8:00PM, Kenmore City Hall
A presentation will be given by Staci Adman on her approach to merging art and science with a variety of materials. Light refreshments will be served.
Featuring works by:
Staci Adman ● Ti Locke ● Holly Forbis ● Lois Gaylord ● Meg Gray ● Laura Grover ● Gay Jensen ● Liz Moncrief ● Donna Prichard ● Julia Rapinoe ● Lynne Rigby ● Pam Seaberg ● Carol Tanner ● Cyndi Wolfe ● Judith Warren
The Art of Textiles Exhibit showcases a wide range of subject matter celebrating styles from Americana quilting to abstract felting applications. Since the beginning of civilization, textiles have been at the heart of the human experience for uses of clothing, shelter, and decoration. From the Silk Road to the Industrial Revolution, textiles were as valuable as the spice trades. Traditionally, textile art is founded in fibers such as yarn or silk, cultural patterning such as Celtic or Hardanger, and handcrafted techniques like crochet and needlepoint have been handed down from generation to generation.
Today's textile artist is no longer bound by traditional tools-of-the-trade. Modern textile art is becoming a no-holds-bar mixed media genre often maneuvering old and new techniques into greater expressive forms, incorporating new materials such as metals or repurposed materials, blended with painting or ceramic applications into expressive artworks. The latest expression even ventures into the realm of temporary public art as YarnBombs: the technique of wrapping trees with knitting or crocheting! We welcomed works into this exhibit that cross the line between traditional and modern.
If anyone knows about anyone who is ill or just needs a card of support, please call me. Thanks!

The importance of club members and interested supporters of the community participating in club work parties cannot be stressed enough. Without the help more of this work will be farmed out which will raise the cost of our operations. Please remember this is your club house, you own it and it is up to you to help maintain it.

|SEPTEMBER 2014 PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE|
By the time you receive this newsletter the care center will have released me and I will be home.
As we close the door on summer, we look forward to our fall and winter season. Soon the rain will close in until spring. Baseball ends, football begins as do many other fall and winter sports. Soon the rainy season will greet us. Of course we can't forget that soon, many of us will be sitting down to a golden roast turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes with gravy and all the trimmings as Thanksgiving and Christmas are just around the corner. Fact is Thanksgiving Day is only 81 days away and only 106 days until Christmas. And then 2015 will be here.
We have received the news we have been waiting for, that is King County has released our grant money to 4culture, who will manage the funds and now Annette and I will present an oral history to the County Landmark Preservation Board and with their OK we will be off and running.
Please pay attention and read with care Bev's report on Hopelink as the busy season is here and there are more families in need of help.
Thanks to John Hendrickson for his work to get our computer program up and operational. Also for his work on some moss removal from the club house roof. Also thanks to John and Annette for the physical inventory of our building contents and Kathi and Bud added some estimated values to the list.
A very special thank you to our weekly Sunday renter, Christian Family Fellowship for cleaning our very dirty tables and chairs. On August 10th they worked 7 hours and had Ed and Kathi Straw, Dave Evans and Annette Eaton helping. While the chairs were being cleaned, some weeded and some cleaned the windows inside. On August 23rd the church group finished cleaning about 30 chairs and worked on the tables for 5 hours, and finally on September 5th Bill Miller of the same group finished up the remaining tables with Annette's help. I do hope that you all noticed how nice the yard looks with the weeds all taken care of on the West side of the building.
KEEP YOUR MIND OPEN TO A DATE WHEN YOU CAN HELP WITH A WORK PARTY. THERE IS A LOT OF EXTRA CLEANING, ETC. THAT NEEDS TO BE DONE.
Monthly attendance winner was Carol Parrish, however she was not in attendance. At this month's potluck the pot will be at $10.00. There were 30 adults and 11 kids in attendance in August.
The nation's finest men and women who volunteer to serve in the armed forces are stationed all around the world to support friendly countries and protect our country's interest in those lands. Please give a moment of your time and say a little prayer for these brave volunteers who are serving in this nation's military.
