This is a special Monday night version of the Fabulous Fashionable Ferndale House Concert, which I am calling the Anti-Monday Night Football Edition.

Featured performer will be Evan Greer, a queer social justice focused singer/songwriter, community organizer, and workshop facilitator based in Boston. Evan is flying into Detroit on his way to National Coming Out Week Events at Albion College, and we are thrilled to be able to host Evan on the way.

Check out Evan's site at www.evangreer.org. There are mp3s you can listen and download if you click on "Lyrics and MP3s". At least listen to "Picket Line", "Ya Basta!" but it is all great stuff.

There will be three open mic slots to open the show. I may play a song or two.

Steve Deasy “Let Me Make Peace” Concert Celebrates the 9th Anniversary of the Citizens for Peace

The public is invited to celebrate the 9th anniversary of the Citizens for Peace and enjoy the “Let Me Make Peace” Concert with songwriter, musician and performer Steve Deasy on Tuesday, November 13th at Unity of Livonia at 7 p.m.

Steve plays guitar, piano and harmonic and will entertain the audience with thought provoking, inspiring and funny original songs. It will be a fun celebration of nine years of working to help create a culture of peace.

The Citizens for Peace will present their first Compassionate Citizen Award honoring
Caroline and Jerry Trout. When Caroline’s cousin and her husband were killed in an accident, they left five children including a toddler. Caroline and Jerry adopted all five children to add to their family of two children. At Jerry Trout’s recent funeral service, their now adult children expressed their love, gratitude and admiration for both of their parents, showing that compassionate action is like a boomerang – it comes back to the sender. Telling stories of local heroes like Caroline and Jerry will hopefully inspire all of us to act compassionately in our own lives.

Following the concert, the celebration will end with participants enjoying an anniversary cake. All are welcome. For more information call Colleen at 734-425-0079 or go to www.citizensforpeace11.blogspot.com

Royal Oak, Michigan, USA 48067

The Farmers Market is located in the Civic Center at the corner of 11 Mile Road and Troy Street, across from the Library and adjacent to the 44th District Court. The Royal Oak Farmers Market provides one of the premium farm market venues in southeast Michigan. Farm producers sell from an enclosed building, with ample parking, on Friday during the farm season (May through Christmas) and Saturday all year 'round. During growing season farmers are only allowed to sell what they grow.

A Flea Market of regional fame is open every Sunday where 100+ vendors sell on a rotating basis, attracting repeat visits from antiques and collectibles-seekers from all over the state.

The Royal Oak Farmers Market opened as a truck market, at the corner of 4th and Troy streets, on October 14, 1925 as a cooperative venture between the then-new City of Royal Oak and Oakland County, Michigan. The present structure was erected in the spring of 1927 and dedicated July 1 of that year. Since 1997 the Farmers Market has been solely owned and operated by the City of Royal Oak. It has been a popular institution for more than 80 years.
