by: Colleen Ward, Art Guild President

As you may know, our Hospitality Chairman gave up the position in May.

Also, the Board voted to simplify the Hospitality Table by offering only cake, coffee and iced tea.

How Southern! To make the task more manageable, I am asking for members to volunteer to be the host/hostess for One Saturday Meeting. Publix gift cards will be provided by The Art Guild. We will provide a "Shopping List" of all the necessary items and the quantities needed. If the host chooses to provide a homemade cake, then the gift card can be used to cover the cost of ingredients.

The Art Guild has two Luncheons a year, the December Party and the May Scholarship Award Luncheon. These events require a little more work but are very fun, as well. Twelve tables need centerpieces. Meat and Cheese Platters need to be provided, as well. Once again, a Publix gift card will be provided, as well as a Shopping List including quantities. A budget will be provided for those extra special touches.

My e-mail of August 2nd found some wonderful volunteers and I thank them very much for their early responses. All of the Saturday Meeting dates have not been filled so several slots are still open. Call me or e-mail me with the date you would LOVE to host. Hospitality Volunteers Needed meeting dates still open:

September 8th volunteer needed

October 13th Kathy Vanasse can switch

November 10th Helen Mullins can switch

Dec. 8th (Luncheon): volunteer needed Eleanor Adamo will assist

January 12th Lily Goldman can switch to Feb.

February 9th volunteer needed

March 9th volunteer needed

April 13th Andrea Holbrook

May 11th (Luncheon): volunteer needed

I am looking forward to a fun-filled year and to seeing all of you! Colleen Ward, Phone: 343-0448, or email me by clicking:
