When: Sun., Jan. 3, 7 p.m. 2016
A determination to pursue dreams even in the midst of difficult circumstances will be discussed at Lifetree Café on Sunday, January 3 at 7 p.m. The program, titled “Follow Your Dreams: Even When You Think You Can’t,” features a filmed interview with Mandy Harvey, a jazz vocalist whose sudden hearing loss nearly derailed her dream of becoming a professional singer. During the interview, Harvey explains how losing her hearing caused a downward spiral that almost kept her from pursuing any interest in music altogether. firstname.lastname@example.org “I started not being able to understand my teachers talking anymore, so I started moving closer and closer to the front of the room,” she says. “It didn’t help. I got hearing aids, but they stopped being useful probably after a month. I figured that I would never do music again.” Admission to the 60-minute event is free. Lifetree Café is located at Campbell Creek Connexion on the corner of Union and 13th St., Arcata. Lifetree Café is a place where people gather for conversation about life and faith in a casual, comfortable setting.
