August 2016

The General Meeting starts at 9:30 a.m. at the Carriage House followed by the Program.

This month's program is our "Annual Members Show and Tell". Each member is encouraged to bring one or two works of their art to show to the Club. This is one of our most popular programs as it is a fun, informal way to get to know each other a little better through our art. Each participant will be given 2 to 3 minutes to talk about their artwork.

The officers of the Club will provide refreshments.

There will NOT be an Artist of the Month contest in August, but we will resume it in September.

If you want to make sure your name is in the Yearbook, you will need to pay your dues at the August meeting.

Download, print, and complete the Membership Application Form.

Annual dues are $30 for one member, and $10 for each additional household member. Include a completed membership form for each household member. Annual dues should be paid by the first regular meeting (2nd Thursday) in August. (That is $3 per month, not counting the summer. Such a deal)
