Join New Community Church at Stadium High School at 7pm for a special Candlelight Christmas Eve service with worship and a special appearance from the NCC Children's Choir.
"The Belsnickle Faire, the darker side of Christmas" embraces the older
stories, the darker stories, before the pastel cartoons that tamed the
Black Forest. We honor the source of stories and embrace a "mouse" free
telling of diverse cultural heritages.
We will have a wide variety of vendors sporting many hand crafted items at this event down at The Freighthouse Square ( 2501 E. D St in Tacoma). Here is a schedule of some of the entertainment and fun to be had at this wonderful event.

Does your child learn something new at school everyday?
The faculty and staff at Seabury School believe that is the right of every child, even those who are intellectually advanced, says head of school Sandi Wollum.
The independent school in Tacoma, which serves gifted children from prekindergarten through eighth grade, is holding an open house for prospective families on Sunday, Nov. 24, from 1 to 3 p.m.
Tour classrooms, meet teachers and learn more about the program at the lower school campus, 1801 53rd St. NE, 98422.
Wollum says there are openings in several classes for this school year. Seabury is also accepting applications for the 2014-15 school year.

Washington state drivers may know that texting while driving can impair their ability to react and drive safely on the road. But many do it anyway—regardless of potential consequences.
That’s why Bates Technical College teamed up with UNITE International’s Arrive Alive Tour to help educate the public about dangers associated with texting and driving. Thursday the Arrive Alive Tour brought a distracted-driving simulator to the college’s South Campus auto body program.
The simulator allowed users to experience distracted driving first hand without actually being in a dangerous situation. Recognized as the most high-tech texting and distracted driving simulator in the nation, it also includes a passenger-eye view, which allows anyone standing around the simulator to experience what the driver experiences.
