Friends in Quilcene will present Nov 13, 19 & 20

We have Quilcene Neighbors who sing in the RainShadow Chorale. Their music is top quality. Come see / hear them at the Lutheran Church of the Redeemer in Chimacum and 2 other venues this month. Here are the details:
>
> RainShadow Chorale presents its fall concert program in three afternoon performances. Artistic Director and Conductor Rebecca Rottsolk has chosen the repertoire for the program from a broad range of time and composers: early music of Giovanni Gabrieli, music of Brahms and Mendelssohn, and on through folk and contemporary compositions and arrangements.
>
>
> “Come to the Woods,” an exciting new work by Jake Runestad, is based on words of John Muir, and follows his venture into the woods and climbing a tree during a storm “for a wider look.”
>
>
> Sure to be a highlight, “Stars,” by Latvian composer Eriks Esenvalds takes its text from a Sara Teasdale poem in which she describes the majesty of the night sky. This piece is accompanied by 20 chorus members “playing” tuned wine glasses.
>
>
> A poem by Theodor Seuss Geisel (Dr. Seuss) – “A Prayer for a Child” – was the inspiration for a hauntingly beautiful arrangement by Estonian composer Pärt Uusberg.
>
>
> This colorful program concludes with John Rutter’s “When Icicles Hang,” a set of five wintery songs.
>
>
> RainShadow pianist, Lisa Lanza, will be assisted by Sharon Snel and Tirzah Small, flute, and Anne Krabill and Nancy Reis on oboe.
>
>
>
> Rottsolk says of her selections: "I knew I wanted our music not to be an escape from real life, but rather be music we could sink our teeth into, texts and songs that would help us be grounded in tumultuous times and uplift and inspire both singers and audience. If there is one text that sums up the ‘why’ of our concert, it would be the opening lines from the Rabindranath Tagore text used in “My Song,” also by Esenvalds”:
>
>
>
> “This song of mine will wind its music around you like the fond arms of love. This song of mine will carry your sight into the heart of things like a faithful star in the dark night over your road!"
>
>
>
> Dates and times:
>
> • Sunday, November 13 – 3:00 pm at Lutheran Church of the Redeemer, 45 Redeemer Way, Chimacum, WA
>
> • Saturday, November 19 – 3:00 pm at Trinity United Methodist Church, 609 Taylor St., Port Townsend, WA
>
> • Sunday, November 20 – 4:00 pm, at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church, 301 E Lopez Ave, Port Angeles, WA.

Center Valley Animal Rescue E- News!

LOW-COST SPAY/NEUTER CLINIC. FIRST EVER AT CVAR!CVAR’s first low-cost spay/neuter clinic was held jointly with Spay To Save (STS) and Olympic Mountain Pet Pals (OMPP) on September 26th at CVAR! Thirty-six cats and dogs were spayed or neutered in our new medical clinic and in the STS Mobile Clinic (Van). We are grateful to STS and OMPP for participating and for STS’s experienced leadership on this project. Dr. Robert Nathan operated in the CVAR clinic and Dr. Karen Meuller operated in the STS Van clinic. Donna Regester from OMPP helped all day long as did multiple CVAR volunteers. CVAR plans to do monthly clinics and our next Spay/Neuter Clinic will be Oct.26th. The clinic will serve lower income families. Appointments only! Call Sara at 360-765-0598 for further information or to make a clinic appointment.

CVAR NOW HAS PERMANENT CUSTODY OF THE GARDINER SEIZED ANIMALS
Jefferson County Animal Control has now awarded permanent custody of the 11 dogs, 11 goats (3 were born at CVAR) and 17 chickens. The chickens are now available for adoption, as are most of the goats. The male dogs have been neutered and are available for adoption. The female dogs will be spayed on 10/18 and will then be available for adoption. One dog was adopted this week and another may head for a new home in New York!

GIRLS NIGHT OUT FUNDRAISER!
CVAR will host its’ first Girls Night Out (at CVAR) on 10/22/16. Girls of all ages are invited to enjoy beverages and snacks. Pamela Zelen will be at the ranch to show her LulaRoe clothing line. All items will be available for sale. The fundraiser will benefit CVAR’s New Roof Project. Please join us from 4:30 to 7:30 pm at the ranch, 11900 Center Rd., Quilcene, WA.

CVAR Cats In Prison????
Yes, it’s true! Three cats so far, "Link", "Precious" and "Zippy", are now in Clallam Bay Correctional Center. No crime was committed by these incarcerated cats. Rather, the cats will be enjoying one-to-one attention and training. CVAR has jointed forces with the Welfare Animal Guild (WAG), Sequim, to provide cats for the prisoners to train. The cats are being halter/leash trained and clicker trained to perform basic tasks. WAG started a dog training program at the prison a number of years ago and convinced the prison that they "should give cats a chance". WAG deals primarily in dogs and so, asked CVAR if we would provide cats for the project. Stay tuned to see how the cats are doing and possibly more cats headed CCBC way.

Fire Safety Has Taken A Big Step Forward at CVAR
Thanks to a grant from the HTB Family Foundation CVAR has improved its fire safety program. A smoke alarm system has been installed in every animal room as well as all the hallways, office and common areas in the main building. The system is monitored off-site 24/7. If a fire is detected the Quilcene Fire Dept. is notified immediately. A special locked box was purchased and installed for the Fire Dept. just outside CVAR’s from gate. Only the Fire Dept. has keys to this locked box. The last phase of the project was to install appropriate fire extinguishers in designated places. The surgery room will have a special CO2 extinguisher. If it is used the surgery room will remain sterile. It is wonderful to know we have done our best to make our domestic animals as safe as we can from smoke and fire….and our Volunteers!

HOLIDAY OPEN HOUSE – HERE BEFORE YOU KNOW IT
Save the date: Saturday, December 3rd, for our Holiday Open House, 11:00 am to 4:00 pm at CVAR! Always a popular event, with food, raffle items and chair massages, this is a fun way to get in the holiday spirit and help our animals. You’ll have a head start on getting some of those holiday gifts for others!
