Fun and Entertaining Old Time Musicians The Canote Brothers Perform in Index
LAKE FOREST PARK – March 8, 2013 – Northwest Heritage Resources is pleased to present a concert performance by well known traditional old time musicians The Canote Brothers in Index, WA. The concert is presented in partnership with the Index Historical Society and the Ethnic Heritage Council, and is scheduled for 7:00pm on Saturday, April 20, 2013 at the River House, 444 Avenue A. in Index.
The Canote Brothers are masters of the Anglo-American tradition of old time string band music. Their concerts are an entertaining mix of fiddle tunes, country songs and swing, performed with a healthy dose of humor and good-natured mischief. Some may remember their live radio show on KUOW from the 1980s, Sandy Bradley and the Small Wonder String Band, broadcast from Murphy’s Pub. Don’t miss this evening of great music and guaranteed fun!
Suggested admission to the concert is a donation of $5.00, collected at the event. There will be no advance ticket sales. The April 20th concert is funded in part by the National Endowment for the Arts, ArtsWA (formerly the Washington State Arts Commission) and Northwest Heritage Resources. Most of admission donations will go to support the Index Historical Society. For more information call 206-306-1181 or 360-793-1534, or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Bush House Inn Mystery Dinner Fundraiser | February 9, 2013 | 5:30pm
The iconic Bush House Inn and Restaurant are undergoing a major historic renovation and we’re throwing another party to celebrate!
On February 9, 2013 the River House Cafe in Index will host a Mystery Dinner Fundraiser for the Bush House Inn historic restoration project. Join us for a fun night of live entertainment and a delicious meal while supporting a wonderful community project. Guests are invited to wear their favorite 1920′s style outfit (think suit jackets, hats and gloves, pearls and brooches, vintage dresses and antique autos – themed attire is optional of course!) and get ready for an exclusive preview of our vision for the fully restored hotel and restaurant.
Closed for several years, the popular Bush House Inn and Restaurant was in danger of being lost forever due to structural concerns and weather damage. New ownership in December 2011 has led to a vision for a fully-restored and fully-functioning inn and restaurant complete with 10 guest rooms, an ADA-accessible suite, full restaurant and bar, banquet room, garden seating, and a historic library in collaboration with the Index Historical Society. The Inn will restore a community center for Index, and provide sustainable jobs and much-needed revenue for the Town.
The Mystery Dinner will be hosted by The River House Cafe – 1 block from the Bush House Inn at the old Index Tavern. A delicious steak and salmon dinner will be served, and lots of photos will be taken! The evening will provide an opportunity for major donors and investors to preview the renovation plans and fund specific components of the project. For more details on funding opportunities please call 425-298-7642.
Reservations are required (click here to reserve your spot!). Space is limited!

Chinese Puppet Theatre to Perform at Index School
Northwest Heritage Resources, in partnership with the Index
Historical Society Pickett Museum, is pleased to present the
traditional Chinese rod puppet theatre, Dragon Art Studio, on
Saturday, November 10, 2012 at 2:00pm at the Index School, 436
Index Ave., Index, WA. Suggested admission donation is $5.00, with
proceeds supporting the Index museum’s programs.
Dragon Art Studio performs traditional Chinese folk tales and other stories with traditional Chinese rod puppets that are hand-crafted by the puppeteers. Before coming to America, Zhengli Xu and his wife and fellow performer, Yuqin Wang, were both leading puppeteers with the famous China Puppet Art Troupe for more than 30 years. When Xu and Wang came to Oregon in 1996 they formed their own puppet theatre – Dragon Art Studio. They have performed all over the world, and in 2004 they were honored by the National Endowment for the Arts with a National Heritage Fellowship, the highest honor our nation gives to folk and traditional artists. Audiences of all ages – adults and children alike – find their performances magical and enchanting.
The November 10th performance is funded in part by the National Endowment for the Arts, the Washington State Arts Commission and Northwest Heritage Resources. Presented by Northwest Heritage Resources in partnership with the Ethnic Heritage Council and the Index Historical Society.
