October, the start of fall, Oktoberfest and Halloween, and the beginning of the holiday season, the busiest time of year.
A very busy and cold time of the year. A cold time of year when people need money for heating their homes, warm clothes, sox and shoes. Also if you have an extra blanket it would be very welcome on a cold day. And as I remind everyone often, food is always needed.
November is the big push for food, and December is for the gifts for the children.
See you at the potluck on October 8th.

THE ART OF TEXTILES
The Arts of Kenmore presents THE ART OF TEXTILES group exhibit - Kenmore City Hall, September 19 to November 14, 2014
Ongoing Exhibit Hours: Monday thru Friday 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM
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.

He and Annette enjoyed classic cars and attended a special car show in Winnemucca, Nevada each summer for 24 years. Bud loved history, especially the Civil War, and was always excited to tell you historic facts. He knew the complete story of the Kenmore Fire Department and had been compiling its history for many years.
Bud spent 42 years in the Fire Service. He started in the Kenmore Fire Department as a volunteer and worked his way through all the ranks and finished as Chief. The last 12 years before retirement were spent with the King County Fire Investigation Unit as a Fire Marshal.

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.
