Dean’s Message January 2024

Well, we did it! Another hectic season, full of anticipation, leading up to Christmas. Heaven knows it was quite an immersion to prepare our choirs, soloists, and ensembles for a myriad of services and performances. It’s a wonder that there was any time left for family traditions. But year after year, perhaps for decades, we manage to get it all done, and what a blessing it always turns out to be, especially in the complicated times that we live in now. We provide and receive a deeper comfort and joy in a broken world. May the remaining Twelve Days be a time of rest, renewal, and contentment and among family and friends.

Looking ahead, we are excited about our next chapter event, a field trip to see “Safety Last” at the Paramount Theatre, Seattle, on Monday, January 22nd, at 7:00pm. As in the past, a public transportation option for those traveling from Tacoma will be planned, which will include an opportunity for a pre-movie meal together.

We hope to bring our membership a February event, and now that Christmas is over, we can refocus our attention to a couple of possibilities in the works. As well, it’s always good to check the TAGO calendar for newly published community events.

Finally, hang on to your hats as 2024 includes an early Easter, March 31st, with Ash Wednesday falling on Valentine’s Day! To make life less complicated, we will not have a chapter meeting in March. Instead, look forward to events in April and beyond.
