Skagit Valley Birdwalk to Benefit Subud Bellingham/Skagit Valley, Saturday February 18, 2017
Ramon Hildreth ended his successful tenure as Chair of Subud Greater Seattle today by handing over the reins to the new Dewan, elected (tested) in inimitable Subud fashion to his daughter Honora Hildreth. She’ll be joined by Vice-Chair Jim O’Halloran, Member-at-Large Lorraine Tedrow and Dewan holdovers Hadiyah Carlyle Secretary) and Sherwin O’Bar, Treasurer. Ramon will test to become Local Helper to replace Jim.
The process was capably guided by Regional Helper Oswald Norton and reports from the Subud Youth gathering in Indonesia were provided by two participants and sisters of the new Chair, Sophy and Leandra Hildreth.
It’s that time of the every-other-year again. The day on which we test candidates for Chair, Vice-Chair, Treasurer, Secretary and At-Large members of the local Dewan. If you have guidance that you might be a candidate for any of these positions, you may want to pretest, but our meeting is set for Sunday, January 29, 2017, after latihan. Presumably there will be food but you might be interested in providing something to share with your brothers and sisters. May the force be with you.
A hearty thank you goes out to our current Dewan:
Chair – Ramon Hildreth
Vice-Chair – Abadeen Gunatilaka
Treasurer – Sherwin O’Bar
Secretary – Hadiyah Carlyle
Helper Rep – Hadijah O’Bar
Helper Rep – Jim O’Halloran
At-Large/Eastside Rep – Hadidjah Gregory
Due to poor attendance over the past several years, Latihans will no longer happen on Thursday nights and Saturday mornings. Instead, a new Latihan time of 7;15pm Wednesdays has started as of January 11, 2017. You are welcome to attend.
Latihan times as of 1.11.17 are:
Thursdays 11:30am (Women only)

We hope to see you soon.

Delicious food with additions to the menu! Kids welcome!

February 3 will feature Osama Afifi and Jacques Willis, February 17 will feature Farko Dosumov and Chef’s surprise.
Sunday January 15 after latihan we will be cleaning out the basement so the sewer line can be fixed on Jan 30. If we have volunteers it won’t take a lot of time. Please give Subud an hour or so that we can continue maintaining the house which maintains our inner lives.
