By definition, a large, lively party, usually with dancing or celebrating something. While this is not what I would deem a large party, I hope for it to be lively, I encourage dancing, and it will most certainly be celebrating something: you, us, and our relationship to this beautiful place and the people that we can call our neighbors. This Shindig is a gesture of my gratitude to you and a celebration of the happenings of 2021!
7:30 - Welcome!
8:00 - Introductions and Screening of "Music for Free"
After the short film, I will be introducing our food partner, Hawthorn Kitchen, and hors d'oeuvres will be served.
Pumped! will be available between 8:30-9:30 to fill up on household items, pick up gift boxes (see below), and/or grab gifts for the holiday season.
Festivities will conclude at 10:30 PM
Hors d'oeuvres will be catered by Hawthorn Kitchen. Lynx sources organic local ingredients and assembles them to create delightfully nourishing eats. Vegan and Gluten Free options will be served.
Leah from Pumped!, a mobile refillery, will be onsite sharing her products with us! Her products will be available to test throughout the venue. Take this opportunity to do a little self pampering or shop for loved ones, 10% of sales will go to supporting Kulshan Community Land Trust. Leah is also offering the opportunity to pre-order gift boxes and products for pick up at The Shindig. Take some time to peruse her website for offerings and to make an order to pick up.
Please bring your own containers to fill, if you have them!
Instructions for pre-ordering:
- At checkout, use your address for "delivery". In the shipping notes, specify "For pick up at The Shindig"
Kulshan Community Land Trust is near and dear to my heart, KCLT is a key organization in Whatcom County providing options for affordable home ownership. Wherever you hear "this market is crazy", it's important to consider the vast impact a housing land trust has on ensuring perpetual access to affordable homeownership for our neighbors.
Help me support affordable home ownership!
Leah from Pumped! will be donating 10% of sales from The Shindig to KCLT and there will be a donation station at the venue. Donations made by visiting their website is always a option!
* I am working on another option that involves plants, will update this page with info as I secure that option. ;)
Playlist by DJ Long Leg Short Foot played throughout the evening! The opportunity to boogie down is imminent.
Show me your sparkles, folx! The past year and... ?... I lost track, have been, well, not nothing, so let's shine!
This venue offers the opportunity to enjoy both a sauna and a hot tub and I encourage both!
There will be a sign up sheet for the sauna to help keep it safer. The hot tub is located in an outdoor covered area. There are showers available for pre and post hot tub/sauna use. Bring towels if you plan to soak/sauna.
This is an indoor gathering and food and beverages will be served. There will be covered outdoor space with a few tables, but no heaters. There are approximately 35 guests invited to this gathering. I understand that a gathering such as this may not be comfortable for everyone and I urge you to make the decision to attend and participate based on your comfort level. In an effort to create a gathering that puts the health and safety of our community first, it is required that you be vaccinated. Thank you!
The Sunrise Swim and Racquet Club is locate at 2121 Birch Circle. There are 4 parking spaces along with street parking. The venue can also be accessed by the 525 bus line, Vista Drive stop, and walking half a mile South on Birch. Plenty of bike parking for my two wheeled warriors!
Please RSVP by December 1st, thank you!
