A visual tour of the heart of Clallam Mosaic
“A Mosaic of Dreams”
From the Director’s Desk
It has been a while since I updated everyone on all the happenings here at Clallam Mosaic so there is a lot to share…..
As many of you know, we are in the fifth week of our 12-week spring term. Our cadre of instructors has grown over the past year and we are excited to be able to have 2 teachers in every class. Although we’ve lost a few to re-location, many of our participants continue to engage in more classes than ever. We’ve also had a few new participants joining our programs over the last few terms and everyone has integrated well into our little community. It is really exciting to see our participants bonding and growing with each term and if you would also like to witness the progress “as it happens”, please join our Facebook page.
With spring term there is always the flurry of activity associated with our annual Theater productions. This year, the Snappy Player’s Troupe is putting together a 1950’s-style radio & television variety show. Many of the characters and story threads established over the past seven years remain an integral part of the storyline. As always, the story is semi-improvisational with vignettes that interweave dastardly plots, intrigue, high jinx, and drama with comedy and silliness. This year, our producer (or, should I say theatrical life-force?), Bonne Smith, is joined by Director Anna Andersen in the creation of a theatrical production that is truly extraordinary! So mark your calendars for the 2 productions: Friday, June 10th at 7:00 pm and Saturday, June 11th at 2:00 pm.
After spring term we will be taking a 3 week break, then summer sessions will start on July 11th and run through August 19th. Summer sessions will be much like last year with classes available 2 days per week (Tuesdays & Thursdays). One day of each week will be held at our Port Angeles facility and one day will be out and about on field trips. Our advice for the summer is to come prepared with sunscreen and a raincoat every day, because our goal is to get participants outside as much as possible to enjoy our beautiful Peninsula summer! Summer sessions will run from 10 am until 3 pm and will cost $25 for each day.
Also in summer is the Sequim Lavender Festival (July 15-17) at which Clallam Mosaic will again have a booth. Lisa Connolly-Petrisin, one of our Board Members, is heading up lavender jelly production so there will be plenty of jars of this much loved item ready for sale at our booth. We will also have a number of items that were created by our participants available for sale so come and visit the booth during the festival….
Another summer event that is new to our organization is the First Bob Cup Golf Tournament. Championed by Board Member, Mary Jane Duncan in memory of her husband, this tournament is being held on July 30th at the Cedars at Dungeness Golf Course (1965 Woodcock Rd, Sequim). The tournament profits will benefit “Mosaic House,” a new vision that our Board has to create a permanent program location for Clallam Mosaic. The tournament will be a full day event with Putt for Wine, Ball-in-the-Boat activities, raffle and a barbeque. The Barbecue will be open to both non-players and tournament competitors so if you are not a golfer, make sure to mark your calendar and attend this event.
Finally, I wanted to mention a few other calendar dates to keep in mind as you look to the future:
