Greg Kronlund 2016 Barbershopper of the Year
At the Harmony Kings annual Christmas Party/Installation, Greg Kronlund was named "Barbershopper of the Year for 2016!"
Greg's singing days go all the way back to third grade where he sang his first solo. Singing has always been a part of his life. His first "quartet” was a folk group called "The Trav'lers", that actually went on tour for 29 days.
For Greg's real job, he has been a disc jockey; worked for the NASCAR circuit in the Tri Cities, WA, and is currently working for Pierce College as a Program Assistant of PierceWorks! A Human Development/Career Transition Course.
It was back in the Tri cities where Greg sang with the Columbia River Chordsmen. Greg was also a member of the Rainier Valley Harmonizers and the Puyallup Valley Harmonizers prior to coming to the Harmony Kings. And we are so glad he came our way!!
Greg has been instrumental in many facets of our organization. He has taken on the role of President for two years. And he is able and willing to do it again for a third year. Greg has a way of getting things done. He does a fantastic job of setting goals for our organization and actually having them come to fruition.
Through Greg's steady leadership, Harmony Kings has grown in numbers; he has guided us in taking our example to "serve" the community. He has been instrumental in having our Harmony Kings host the Regional Leadership Academy. Greg is truly a valuable member of our Harmony Kings Family!
So it is with great honor and appreciation that we have named Greg Kronlund as our 2016 Barbershopper of the Year!!

Barbershopper of the Year 2015
Jim Fellows is our January 2017 Barbershopper of the Month
Federal Way Harmony Kings Chapter is pleased to recognize Jim Fellows as our January Barbershopper of the Month.
Jim began his barbershop career officially in 2014. He joined Harmony Kings as an excellent Bass, and a faithful member. Shortly after his arrival to Harmony Kings he sponsored a new member and earned his first Man of Note Award. In addition to barbershop Jim has also sung with Illumni Men's Chorale,and Northwest Sound Men's Chorus.
Jim has been active in community performances and helping behind the scenes for many Harmony Kings events. He is co-founder of Harmony Kings newest chapter quartet "Silvery Tides". The quartet began with new members that dubbed themselves "The Oobie Newbies" for an afterglow, and that soon led to the formation of "Silvery Tides" which is actively preparing for performance.
We are proud to recognize Jim, specifically, as a new coordinator for our Singing Valentine fund raiser. In December we announced that our Singing Valentine co-chairs wanted to retire in 2018, and we needed two volunteers to learn the ropes to take over next year. Jim was one of the men that volunteered. Before he knew it he was processing orders, answering phones, answering emails, and moving more into management. January marks the beginning of Jim's Singing Valentine Career, and we appreciate how he jumped in, with both feet, to create a successful Harmony Kings Fund Raiser.
It is with pride that Harmony Kings present our January BOTM award to Jim Fellows.
