October General Meeting

The Prez Sez…

Ghost, Goblins and Princesses oh my!!! The holiday season is fast approaching with Halloween being the beginning and that means our first show is right around the corner. I hope everyone is busy finishing up on their entries for the November show which will be Nov. 15th at Homewood Suites. We are hoping for record entries this year so get busy in the studio!! I think the new show venue will give our art work more exposure to the public which could lead to more sales.

At the beginning of our new year, I need to remind all members to get their dues to Linda Achard as soon as possible. Your dues ensure you are eligible to enter the shows, hang your artwork at the library and Café du Bois and continuing attendance at the general meetings. It also helps Linda with the bookkeeping so please bring your check to this month’s meeting or mail it to her this week.

Our meeting is Oct. 21st and I’m looking forward to seeing you all there.

Demo for October
