Lanny Gleason 2015 Barbershopper of the Year
Congratulations are due to Lanny Gleason for being named the 2015 Harmony Kings Barbershopper Of The Year!
We are proud to recognize Lanny for his hard work and dedication behind the scenes. Recently he has held the position of Communications VP and Chorus Manager. Lanny has also held the positions of membership and chapter development. Mid-way through 2015 he took over the duties of Chapter Secretary.
As our Chorus Manager Lanny successfully arranged and organized over 30 Community Performances in 2015; including the chorus audition for America’s Got Talent. Balancing these activates while holding a board position at the same time is an amazing feat, and Lanny handles his duties with tremendous enthusiasm.
A member since 2005, Lanny is a valuable member of the Federal Way Chapter. Lanny is always ready to jump up and help; he is one of our "un-sung" heroes. This is Lanny’s second BOTY award! We truly appreciate all the things Lanny Gleason does to make Chapter life more enjoyable.

Donavan Skaggs Is our September 2016 Barbershopper of the Month
Federal Way Harmony Kings Chapter is pleased to recognize Donavan Skaggs as our September Barbershopper of the Month.
This is a first because Donavan doesn’t sing. That doesn’t mean he can’t.
For the past year Donavan has worked behind the scenes as the Harmony Kings Social Media Adviser. Now his joins the board as the first Community Board Member at Large. You can see the results of his work at the Harmony Kings You Tube Channel.
Throughout high school, he preferred being an instrumentalist (trumpet, French horn and piano), but he did sing for his sweetheart while in a band. Donavan and his sweetheart Teresa just celebrated their 30th anniversary
Donavon served as president of the Auburn Mountainview Band Parents Association, and became known as the parent who produced CDs and DVDs for fundraisers. His media business “Silent Knight” reflects his interest in the performing arts.
That’s how he came to the Harmony Kings. For Harmony Kings 2015 show “Love Letters” Donavan’s daughter, Rachael was part of the cast, so it was only natural to attend. After the show his son Rodger sang a tag with the headliner “Coda”. Now Rodger is a Society member and Baritone with the Harmony Kings and its Donavon’s job to bring Rodger to chorus. Donavan refused to join us on the risers, saying, “I can do more for you behind the scenes.” So one evening, Harmony Kings asked if he would help out with Marketing, since we had needed for an advisor to the board and he was always there on Tuesday night anyway.
It is with pride that Harmony Kings present our September BOTM award to Donavon Skaggs.
