     Dear Members,  The Art Material Swap at the January Meeting was a lot of fun this year.  We got rid of some of our stuff and brought home other people’s.  It is always a fun time.

    The people who worked with Bonnie on the Paint It and Take It had a nice time and produced some noce Valentine cards.  Bonnie is great and we are very fortunate to have her and that she is so generous in sharing her expertise.

    Our next Demonstrator is Carol Grice-Curran.  Carol is a longtime member who at one time held my illustrious position.  She will be doing an Oil Painting Demonstration.  Looking forward to it.

    The Square Off Show will be hanging through February.  The reception will be February 23 between 6 p.m. and 8 p.m.  The awards will be given out at that time and we are invited.  Some of our members are in the show and the quality of the work is very high.

    I hope you are all getting something done for our Members Show in May.  Please keep it in mind.  We are also looking for someone to Chair it.  It is not a huge amount of work and we have people who will guide you.  Take the plunge and join our Board as the Members Show Chairperson.  You will be appreciated.

    Sue Allen has taken on the position of Monthly Program Chair and we thank her.  We would also like to thank Carol Karow for having done that job for us for a long period of time.  She brought us some interesting talent and we do thank her very much.

    I also want to thank all of you who have submitted your dues.  Another reminder on dues:  If you haven’t paid be aware that we are sending a Membership Application with the Newsletter to pay your dues with.  Please send the payment or bring it to the meeting as soon as possible so that we can get that order of business over with as soon as we can and with as little stress as possible.  If you have a problem please let us know.  (Also if you have no change of information then just your name, phone number, and amount remitted are necessary on the form.)

    Our next Board Meeting will be February 26 at 6:30 p.m. at Hawthorne Village at 851. W. Lumsden Road, Brandon.  The Board Members are expected to attend and it is open to all of our members.  If you want to join our Board or if you have anything to offer, please join us.
