Mark your calendar and come to the Rummage Sale on Saturday, April 4 from 9 AM to 3 PM. There will be great deals to be had, baked goods, and music from Eckstein’s very own jazz combos.
This sale is a fundraiser. Monies raised from the rummage sale go directly to the Eckstein music program and are used to help offset some of the costs of off-campus music performances, repair damaged instruments and provide scholarships to students who need assistance. The goal is to make music accessible to everyone.

While you are out and about, doing errands and getting coffee on Saturday morning, March 28, stop by one of the Wedgwood Community Council tables to say hello!
Wedgwood Community Council officers (called trustees) will be at the info table, ready to hear your questions and concerns about neighborhood needs.
The info table will be at two successive locations on Saturday morning: from 9 to 10 AM at Van Gogh Coffeehouse in the shopping complex between the Wedgwood Broiler and Homestreet Bank; then from 10:30 to 11:30 at Javasti, 8617 35th Ave NE, one block north of Wells Fargo Bank.
Per Johnson, WCC trustee, has expertise in land use and environmental issues.
What is the Wedgwood Community Council? The Wedgwood Community Council (WCC) is a not-for-profit neighborhood advocacy group that represents the concerns of Wedgwoodians. The WCC is comprised of volunteer trustees who are residents of Wedgwood. They give their time and expertise for the betterment of the community. WCC offers a forum for Wedgwood residents to air opinions, ideas, grievances, and announcements of community interest. In addition, WCC works towards goals identified as priorities by the community and spearheads events that benefit the community, such as Wedgwood Outdoor Cinema and Wedgwood Business Trick-or-Treat.
Saddle up your steed and ride over to the University Branch Library at 5009 Roosevelt Way NE. Beginning on March 30, on Monday nights the library will showcase some of the greatest Western films ever made. This six shooter series covers nearly every important era of the Western, from the genre definers starring John Wayne and Marlene Dietrich to the auteurist appropriations of Robert Altman and Jim Jarmusch. These free shows start weekly at 6 PM. (Please note: there will be no show on Monday, April 20. All are welcome to attend the monthly book club instead!)
March 30: Destry Rides Again: James Stewart plays a sheriff sent to clean up the corrupt town of Bottleneck without the use of a gun.
April 6: Fort Apache: John Wayne stars as an honorable cavalry man who is at odds with his new superior, a bigoted lieutenant colonel played by Henry Fonda.
April 13: Ride the High Country: Randolph Scott and Joel McCrea must transport gold through treacherous lands in a film that serves as a great bridge to the revisionist Westerns of the 1960s.
April 27: For a Few Dollars More: Clint Eastwood teams up with Lee Van Cleef to track down a sadistic killer in Sergio Leone’s quintessential Spaghetti Western.
May 4: McCabe & Mrs. Miller: Julie Christie and Warren Beatty attempt to build a community in the Pacific Northwest in this funereal “anti-Western”.
May 11: Dead Man: Johnny Depp heads off on a journey to the afterlife with Gary Farmer as his guide in this hypnotic and hilarious film from director Jim Jarmusch.
Not enough Westerns for you? The library is partnering with Scarecrow Video and they will screen episodes of classic Western television shows every Monday night, immediately after the feature!
