Hi Everyone:

For the month of November we have several things going on;

The first is our regular first Friday open acoustic jam happening on Friday, November 3rd from 10am-Noon at Faith Baptist Church, located at 436 Coal Creek Rd in Chehalis.
To find the Church take I-5 to exit 79, then head EAST. Take a LEFT at N. National Ave and go 1/3 mile, then turn RIGHT on Coal Creek Rd. Go 1.1 miles on Coal Creek Rd, then take a RIGHT into the Church driveway. We are usually in the middle building.
There will be coffee and tea and some snacks but it won’t be a potluck.
For our tune of the month we’ll be doing ‘Battle of Cedar Creek’ in D. I’ll also have sheet music for ‘Patty Ann’ and ‘Thanksgiving Waltz’ by Jay Ungar.

Also, don’t forget we will have our regular second Wednesday playdate on Wednesday, November 8th from 4:00-5:00pm at Colonial Stillwater Estates, located at 2700 Colonial Drive in Centralia.

To get to Colonial Stillwater FROM THE NORTH: Take I-5 to exit 82 (Harrison Ave). Go straight at the light, across Harrison Ave and onto the frontage road that runs along I-5 South. Stay in the RIGHT HAND lane. At the light, take a RIGHT on Mellen Street, follow it across the Chehalis River bridge. It will turn into Cooks Hill Rd, and take you past Providence Centralia Hospital. Go about 3/4 mile past the hospital and turn LEFT into the entrance into Colonial Stillwater estates. Go about 1/4 mile past the entrance and park at Colonial Residence (the big white building on the right with pillars). We will be just inside the main entrance on the left.

To find Colonial Stillwater FROM THE SOUTH: Take I-5 to exit 81 (Mellen St). Take a LEFT onto Mellen St at the second light, then follow it across the Chehalis River Bridge. It will turn into Cooks Hill Rd and take you past Providence Centralia Hospital. About 3/4 mile past the hospital, take a LEFT into the Colonial Stillwater Estates entrance, go about 1/4 mile and park at Colonial Residence (the big white building on the right with pillars). The music parlor is just inside the entrance and to the left.

Please come to our Colonial Stillwater playdate if you can (and if you are a member). Our performing group is really small at the moment, but these playdates help us raise money for our youth scholarship fund for WOTFA FiddleCamp every July. And I hate playing alone!
