REMINDER: Next Shape-Note Singing is this Monday, Nov 14th, 7:00-8:30pm

Our next singing is coming up this coming Monday night, Nov 14th,
7:00-8:30pm at University Mennonite Church. If anyone is inclined to
come a little early to help set up the room, I would be obliged
because I'll be sliding around some cartons from the "Ten Thousand
Villages" annual sale Saturday to make room for the square. Please
drop me a line if  you can come a little early to help.

I would also highly recommend stopping by the 10K Villages sale
tomorrow if you like to support fairly traded arts and crafts from
around the world. "Ten Thousand Villages" is an organization committed
to selling seeing that the majority of the profit from these sales
goes directly to the artisans. The years I've  been involved, we
unpack all this cool stuff Wednesday and Thursday, and the sale, which
is really popular in town, goes Friday and Saturday. I'm always amazed
at the variety and creativity of the art, and even though I'm not an
arts and crafts person by nature, I somehow always wind up getting
stuff. And the prices are very reasonable.

There is also a "cafe" (downstairs) where they serve delicious
international food and rustle up live music to play (i've been rustled
up again to play banjo with my fiddle/guitar playing compatriots for
the 11:30-12:00 slot I think, or maybe the 11:00-11:30 slot). My banjo
playing is nothing special by a long shot, but the other guys are
good. And the sale is really good. It goes 9:00-3:00 or 4:00, but the
good stuff is generally gone by 3:00. Here's some info on the

The only downside for me of this whole business is that all the unsold
stuff gets put in cartons and left in the lobby Monday until the
shipper comes to take if back. And there are typically a lot of
cartons, unless all of it is sold of course!  So if you can come
Saturday to buy it, or come Monday a little early to slide it around,
either would be appreciated. But most importantly, I certainly hope
that you can come to sing!
