We are having the July meeting on the 17th. Hospitality will be furnishing the annual hot dogs, buns and the normal condiments. We ask members to bring their favorite picnic dishes, snacks, and/or desserts. July is the annual trunk sale where you can sell painting supplies and surfaces from your car. Mary Ann Yurus will be teaching Two Penguins (see the class page for info) acrylic project. In May we had Christmas in May, now winter in July. If you want to do it and haven't signed up yet, contact Cindie Martincic. She will give you all the necessary information.

The 2022 Service project is walker bags once again for disabled veterans. Walker bags are tote bags modified to be attached to the walkers. See the Service page in the current newsletter for some painted recently. Patriotic patterns are what we are painting on them. In addition, we are still doing memory boxes. Both memory boxes and bags will be available at the next meeting. If you took home a tote bag or memory box to paint, please bring them back (painted of course).

Ways 'n Means will accept any donations as usual at the next meeting. If you wish to sell or give away "stuff" to your fellow members, table space will be available, or you can sell from your car. This includes any old Make-It/Take-Its teachers may have.

Rosemary is still asking everyone to save glass jars. Rosemary would appreciate that all labels and glue be removed and that the glass be smooth. If you have jars like canning jars you can still bring them. Sewickley now has a dumpster for glass recycling. In addition, Rosemary and Animal Friends will accept any monetary donations, small blankets, and food. A big thank you to all who have and will support the dogs, cats, rabbits, etc.

​The Chapter Banner with that scene of Pittsburgh on it is still hiding somewhere. If you have it, please bring it to the meeting. If you know where it might be, let any Board member know.
