The following is from the Seattle Labor Chorus:

SEATTLE — Amid cold winds weather-wise and politics-wise, you can cheer yourself up by attending the annual Seattle Labor Chorus Singalong — Saturday evening, March 25 from 7 to 9:30 p.m. You can look forward to the usual spirited community singing with words provided, a silent auction, a song or two by the Chorus, great homemade snacks, fellowship, and family-friendly atmosphere. The event will take place at the same location as last year, the Phinney Ridge Lutheran Church, 7500 Greenwood Ave. N., Seattle.  There is street parking (though not in the handicapped parking near the church’s back door), or else take the #5 bus.

The Singalong features great songs of labor, peace, and justice as well as some old chestnuts.  You are welcome to lead a song as an individual or a group, or to sit back and join in the singing, or, just listen.  The food will include savories, desserts, and non-alcoholic drinks. And—you can buy tickets for the Chorus’ annual quilt raffle, or buy the Chorus CD’s.  For bidding in the silent auction, bring your checkbook or cash. Another feature: you can bring flyers for a community table, available to the approximately 200 people who typically attend. Admission is by a suggested donation of $15 per adult or $5 for children, but no one will be turned away.

The Singalong is the Chorus’ biggest fundraiser of the year. It is one of the means that allows the Chorus to sing for free in support of working people at strikes, rallies, protests, and union meetings; at annual conferences, at benefits for good causes, for book signings, at memorials; and at the Northwest Folklife Festival. Further information about the Chorus is on the SLC website — www.seattlelaborchorus.org. Or contact Janet Stecher at (206) 524-7753 or rebelvoz@aol.com.
