Ken Jacobsen Music Hour: Playful Music

This will be a participatory program where we will discuss different elements of music and instruments from around the world, have some basic instructions, and then play some improvised music together. Making music is easy with a few good tips, and making music as a community is at the heart of the musical experience. Ken will bring a variety of drums and percussion instruments from all over the world, and well as guitars, hammered dulcimer, autoharp, xylophone and others. No musical experience required!  Must RSVP to Jana to attend. or 253-756-6219.

Pioneer Memories, Future Dreams: Eliza Jane Meeker – Living History with Karen Haas

Those who have studied Washington State History have likely heard of Ezra Meeker, First Mayor of Puyallup and Oregon Trail preservationist. Fewer have heard of his wife, Eliza Jane. She traveled the Oregon Trail, was an advocate of women’s suffrage, founder of Puyallup’s first library, and instrumental in the family’s business enterprises. Mrs. Meeker truly was the power behind the Hop King’s throne. Delve into the life and time of the Meekers as Karen portrays this fascinating woman who contributed so much to our region’s history. This program is made possible by a generous donation to Senior University.  Must RSVP to Jana to attend. or 253-756-6219.
