Renton City Concert Band 12/11/11
By John Schmit
What a fun time we had with Mom at the 2011 Holiday Concert on Sunday at the Ikea Performing Arts Center in Renton. The Concert Band performed several classical pieces and got everyone in a light, positive mood. During the intermission the Flute Quartet entertained with Christmas music. After the intermission, the band continues with Christmas favorites and even invited the audience to sing along. It was quite a festive program.

Mt. Rainier 12/02/11
By Barbara Lawrence
While Linda and I were out yesterday we could see Mt. Rainier and it was so awesome. Every time we saw it we exclaimed over how gorgeous it looked in all its glory. We were down in Federal Way so Linda pulled into a parking lot and I shot this picture. The reason I wanted to get Mt. Rainier is because of the dark ominous clouds above it while below was clear blue sky.
