Moe Moser community memorial service SAT 2-21-15, 9:30 AM Quilcene School

A message from Chief Karp, Quilcene Fire Rescue

We regret to inform all that our Quilcene and Coyle communities lost Deputy Chief Robert “Moe” Moser last week. Moe put up a good fight and he will be missed by our community and fire district.

Marnie and Moe Moser

Marnie and Moe Moser

Deputy Chief Robert “Moe” Moser served the Quilcene and Coyle Community faithfully, and with dedication as a volunteer for over 24 years. He gave his time, energy, knowledge, and leadership to make Quilcene and Coyle safer communities. Twice during his tenure with Quilcene Fire Rescue the commissioners asked Moe to step into the Fire Chief position, which he did without hesitation. Moe is directly responsible for training many of the EMT’s in Jefferson County and the surrounding area.

A Memorial Service will be held Saturday February 21, 2015 at 10:00am at the Quilcene School (Hwy 101 and Herbert Street)—We are asking all community members, and friends who wish to attend to be in the school gym by 9:30am, as we need to start the service promptly at 10:00. Uniformed firefighters and law enforcement are asked to assemble at the Quilcene fire Station, 70 Herbert Street, Quilcene, 98376 at 8:30am. We will then proceed as a group to the school. We will be parking apparatus along Hwy 101 or Herbert Street. Carpooling is requested. Please pass this information along to your friends and members who may want to pay their respects to Deputy Chief Moser.

At the request of Moe and Marnie, donations can be made to Quilcene Fire Rescue (Please mark as Moe’s Memorial). At his request all donated funds will be used directly for the benefit of the Quilcene volunteers.

Potluck to follow in School cafeteria.

My Darling Clementine, on Tour from the UK

My Darling Clementine

My Darling Clementine

One of the many definitions of harmony is.. agreement; accord; harmonious relations, so it is a sweet irony that in Country Music, the joining of two voices should so often be used to sing about disharmony. Songs of betrayal, regret, anger, guilt, revenge and hurt.

But it is that contradiction which draws us to this music. 2 people, singing to each other, about each other, while staring directly into each others eyes. As listeners we become voyeurs to something so personal. Like eavesdropping neighbors tuning into a domestic. We are at once curious, sad, compelled but yet unable to turn away.

The classic country duets were undoubtedly at their peak in the late 60s and 1970s, the likes of George Jones & Tammy Wynette, Dolly Parton and Porter Waggoner, Johnny & June and many more. Fast forward 40 years and those timeless themes are alive and well in the hands , and voices of……..My Darling Clementine (aka Michael Weston King and Lou Dalgleish)
