Upcoming Events

Maritime Folknet is aiding the maritime community by providing assistance with some upcoming events.

Here are short descriptions:

Benefit Concert for Teresa Morgan has been changed to a song circle in her memory.
Sunday, December 11, 2011 from 7:00 to 10:00 pm
Center for Wooden Boats
1010 Valley Street, Seattle, 98109
Admission free, donations suggested.

With the sudden passing of Teresa Morgan, the benefit concert has been changed to a song circle in her memory, as an opportunity for community and healing. Please join us as we gather to remember and honor Teresa. Donations will be given to Teresa’s family to cover her final expenses. The location will be the Center for Wooden Boats, from 7 to 10 pm.

Later, there will be a memorial/life remembrance event for Teresa, at a date and location yet to be announced.

Please read the message from Jan Elliott-Glanister on the Victory Music web site. She has some good advice about dealing with this unexpected loss.

The series of benefit concerts planned for 2012 might continue, to establish a fund for musicians in need, in memory of Teresa. This has not yet been decided.
For more information, or email walice1@qwest.net.

There will be a memorial service for Teresa Morgan at Immanuel Lutheran Church on December 18 at 5 pm. Stories and pictures are welcome.

If you would like, you can bring a special Christmas ornament in dedication to Teresa and Arwen, to be given to Lara and her family. You may bring an ornament on the 11th or the 18th.
