Continental Fire Company, 408 E Montezuma Ave, Houghton, MI
Mark your calendar and join us on Wednesday, December 6, 2017 for the third annual collaborative holiday celebration with a cause!

The reason for this seasonal gathering is more than just good cheer, tasty food, and networking, as it hopes to once again raise funds to help feed our hungry neighbors and provide local scholarships.

All proceeds will be donated to the Baraga-Houghton-Keweenaw (BHK) Community Action Agency (CCA) Western UP Food Bank and a silent auction will raise funds for KEDA’s High School Skilled Trades Scholarship Program. Additionally, strike a pose in our holiday photo booth or try your luck in the 50/50 raffle.

The event will be held at The Continental Fire Company, 408 E Montezuma Avenue, beginning at 6:30 pm. Appetizers will be prepared by Chef Mark Pittillo, the head chef at The Continental Fire Company. The event will be held in the upper level, which is now a renovated restaurant called The Mining School, and a cash bar will be available.

Admission to the event is a suggested $30 donation and guests are encouraged to pre-register through the Keweenaw Chamber of Commerce website: http://www.keweenaw.org/events/details/keweenaw-holiday-hoopla-helping-out-your-neighbor-5429

Peter White Public Library, Community Room, Marquette, MI
Have you ever wondered what is really going on beneath the surface of your favorite music? Do you wish you could hear into the music, hear it skillfully? Would you enjoy having an awareness of how music is constructed and what makes it "great?"
Beginning Monday, October 30, retired NMU professor Floyd Slotterback will present a six-session "how-to" in becoming a skilled music listener. Classes run from noon to 1:00 pm in the Peter White Public Library’s Community Room. After 40 years of music teaching, Floyd will share his enthusiasm and teaching skills to help you know what it is you are hearing, and how to organize an appreciation for it.
Becoming a good listener is possible if you know how to listen for and recognize structure. All great music (pop to jazz to classical) is built by the composer out of recognizable chunks of meaning. With no music reading skills, you can learn to hear and organize these chunks.
You will benefit more from the sessions if you have paper and pencil. Bring a friend and "have your ears cleaned!" You will never listen to music in the same way again. The class meets weekly Mondays 10/30, 11/6, 11/13, 11/27, 12/4, and Wednesday 12/6. It is open to the public at no charge and no registration is required.

Call 226-4318 or visit www.pwpl.info for more information.
