November 26, 2009 - Octavia’s Beads Studio Open House, Holiday Gift Guide Call, and Free and Legal Downloads

Are you a local artist or producer who wants your products highlighted on venangago-go (at no charge, ‘natch) as part of an on-going buyer’s guide?  Drop me a note for the details.

About a gazillion years ago, I worked with Octavia.  Now she’s an accomplished jewelry & accessories designer in Slippery Rock who’s planning an open house at her studio on Saturday December 5th, 2-5 P.M. and Tuesday December 8th from 5:30-7 P.M.  There’ll be art for sale, local cheeses and massage, to name just a few fun things.  Check it out, you won’t be sorry. 

Franklin Silver Cornet Band Pops Concert is Friday, November 27, 2009  from 8:00pm - 9:30pm at Franklin’s Barrow-Civic Theatre (1223 Liberty St, Franklin PA 16323).   Bring a non-perishable food item for admission.

A group of locals is attempting to have French Creek formally designated a Pennsylvania Water Trail by Pennsylvania’s Fish & Boat Commission.

Award-winning journalist and editor Maximillian Potter will deliver a free public lecture, “Investigative Journalism: What it is and how it will (and won’t) change,” on Monday, Nov. 30 at 7:30 p.m. in Quigley Hall auditorium on the Allegheny College campus.

Westminster College will host its sixth annual Alternative Gift Market Wednesday, Dec. 2, from 9 a.m.-9 p.m. on the third floor of the McKelvey Campus Center. The market is open to the public and is sponsored by Westminster's Young Presbyterian Scholars Program (YPS).   Unique to the Westminster market, which is the third-largest collegiate market in the United States, are the Silk Road Shop, Presbyterian Coffee Project (fair trade coffees and teas), the Western Pennsylvania Table Project (building tables for victims of Hurricane Katrina), and Shoulder to Shoulder Pittsburgh.
