It’s time to celebrate — even before the holidays!

The 3rd History Forum will meet from 10 until 12 at the Oysterville Schoolhouse on Wednesday November 1st.

Who’da thunk that I’d be looking forward to blustery old November with such excitement?  And even before the holidays begin!!  (Although I have to say that I did see some Christmas fruh-frah for sale at the Ocean Park drug store yesterday and had the uncharitable thought that maybe if I looked a little farther I’d see some Easter bunnies hopping around offering Valentines.)

But, “be that as it may” (as they say). November in Oysterville is shaping up to be a month to remember.  For starters, the History Forum meets on the first Wednesday of each month at the Oysterville Schoolhouse and in November that means November 1st!  Author Michael Lemeshko and Pacific County Historical Society President Steve Rogers will be our speakers.  The topic — “The Best Laid Plans”  will explore two of the earliest settlements in Pacific County — back in the days that we were just becoming independent of Oregon Territory!  The Forum is free and open to the public.  Hope to see you then.

Randal, Susan, Clint will be here Sunday, November 5

And hard on the heels of that Wednesday-the-1st gathering will be the House Concert here at the “White House” on Sunday, November 5th featuring internationally acclaimed Irish fiddler Randal Bays with his wife Susan Waters and their friend Clint Dye. Many of you remember Randal and Susan and their boys Willie and Owen from years of Vesper performances.

Larry Murante will be in concert here Sunday, November 19th

And, to put us right over the top here in the village, singer/songwriter Larry Murante will be here on Sunday, November 19th presenting his first House Concert in our area for a number of years.  Larry, you might remember, wrote “The Ballad of Mrs. Crouch” and so I’m wondering if she will manifest herself in any way during Larry’s performance!

If you are interested in attending either or both House Concerts, please email me at sydneyofoysterville@gmail. com.  But hurry!  Space is limited.  And, if you are like I am… I can’t wait for the fun to begin!
