President Notes January 2018
The December 12th Christmas Potluck was a very good time with 19 members present. Thank you goes to Rose Sutton and Barb Brummer for the beautiful decorations. The FACE Chorus provided us with a wonderful musical performance during dinner. A big thank you to the Choir Members and to their director Rochelle Cekander!
I also want to thank Dale Wagoner for taking pictures and doing a group picture during the party. I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and may we all be inspired to follow our creative hearts into the New Year! I hope to see everyone at the January 9th, 2018 Meeting. Refreshments will be provided by Carolyn Lambert and Barb Althoff. The Meeting starts at 7 PM. If any of you have any items that you would like to donate for the raffle, please bring them to this meeting.
