June Hospitality News

Thank you! We appreciate all the members who signed up to be “Cookie Angels” and “Table-Scape Decorators!!”

If you are an “Angel,” please remember that we need 3 dozen sweets (brownies, mini muffins, cookies, or any treat of your choice) for the meeting.  “Decorators” plan on arriving a little early (6:15), so we can set up the table for all our “Angels” and members. Our June 18th meeting “Decorator” will be Mary Oswald.  Our June “Angels” are: Jill Brady, Kareen Ramsey, Robin Hutchings and Cindy Crowley.

Thanks to our May “Angels”: Marilyn Wright, Delores Creekmore, John Fingerlin, and Karen Cermak.  Many thanks to Karen for her gorgeous purple and white Hydrangeas arrangement!

Thanks again and we’ll see you at our June meeting!

Raffle THANK YOU!                                                 

Greg Motto donated a terrific wooden easel (retail value $349.00) which will be raffled off at our June meeting.  Be sure you have your tickets for that and also for other goodies at our raffle table.

On Line Gallery

Do you have your work in our On Line Gallery???  We would like ALL of you put in 3 examples of your art work.  This is so simple to do!  Just send copies of your art work in jpg. format to Bill Oswald, our amazing Web Wizard, at m.oswald@cox.net and he will do the rest!  If you have your own web site, he can direct the viewers to your site for additional paintings.

Upcoming Shows

Now is the time to grab your brushes and get to work on some new paintings.  We will be having a booth at Utica Square for Art in the Square in October, and then a judged show in November for our TCC Show.  So the lazy days of summer are a perfect time to start on your new masterpieces!   Have fun!


Please contact Jacque Gonzales at Ziegler’s, with news of any member who is ill, having surgery, or has experienced a loss.  She will send out a card from Alpha Rho Tau.  Thanks.

The ART Board Meeting will be held on Monday, July 9th due to the holiday weekend.   We’ll meet at Ziegler’s; our regular time, 10:30 am and goodies will be provided!
