Speaking, singing, networking: 3 local groups looking for you

Three local groups/organizations are inviting you to check them out this week. First, tonight, Toastmasters Club 832. From Jacqueline:

West Seattle Toastmasters Club 832 is having its annual “Tales of the Hearth” Guest Night at The Kenney, (tonight) at 6:30. All are welcome to come to this free event to hear some entertaining storytelling, enjoy some leftover Halloween candy (plus other delicious treats) and learn about how a Toastmasters club can help improve their public speaking and leadership skills. E-mail wstoastmasters832@gmail.com for more information.

Then Wednesday morning, also at The Kenney (7125 Fauntleroy Way SW), the BNI Westside Professionals invite businesspeople to join them for networking and breakfast. From Jackie:

If you want your local business to grow and expand BNI chapters are a solid way to help you. We meet Wednesday mornings at The Kenney from 8-9:30 and a full breakfast is provided. We welcome any local business owners to join us.

And Wednesday night, The Olio Show invites interested singers/actors to check out their rehearsal. Marie writes:

We have two ensembles: The Olio Players and The Olio Glee Club and together we plan to produce 3 Olio Shows (which are all-ages variety/vaudeville shows) in the coming year. Our goal is to provide opportunities for adults to develop their singing and acting skills in a fun, supportive environment. Previous training is helpful, but not necessary. No audition is required!

The directors of the show are Bert Gulhaugen and Jerry Halsey, who offer voice lessons through their West Seattle company, In Good Voice. They have produced several Olio Shows in the past, the most recent one a couple of years ago at the Youngstown Performing Arts Center.

Our next rehearsal is this coming Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. at the Westside Unitarian Universalist Church at 7141 California Ave SW. We are very much in need of male voices! We encourage West Seattle dads, husbands, brothers, uncles and sons to come join us and add to the fun! For information, people can call Jerry Halsey at 206-851-3617.

Our first singing performance of the season will be at The Great Figgy Pudding Street Corner Caroling Contest on December 2, downtown Seattle, starting around 5 p.m. We will be one of over 40 caroling teams singing to raise money for the Pike Market Senior Center and Downtown Food Bank. We’d love to find a volunteer with video skills who can do a YouTube video of our Figgy performance, so we can start adding Olio video to our website. Anyone interested can email me at marie.mckinsey@gmail.com.

    I will call later today, but any idea if women are encouraged to come sing as well or are they specifically only looking for men?

      It was an open invitation to all but in particular, they hope to add some male voices. – TR … (P.S. in e-mail, Marie just reaffirmed this, EVERYBODY welcome!)

Sorry, comment time is over.
