2018 Chapter President:
An affiliated chapter of the Society of Decorative Painters (SDP)
The next chapter meeting is September 15th. Mandy will be teaching her rose and metal coffee pot on Saturday the 14th and the meeting day. This is an oil class. See the class page for details. The class will start at 9:00 A.M. and the doors open around 8:30 A.M. on both days.
On Saturday, it's a BYO meal day. For the meeting day, Hospitality will be doing an Italian theme. We ask everyone to bring a favorite Italian dish. This means pasta, sauces, parmesan cheese, salads, and of course desserts. If you have a special condiment you like. you may want to bring some. Think we will see any Italian style deviled eggs?
Ways 'n Means will be accepting any donation as usual. The indoor and outdoor trunk sale will be available if you wish to sell or give away "stuff" to your fellow members. This includes old make-it/take-its teachers may have. If the weather is bad, it will all be indoors on extra tables.
The main service project for the Chapter is painted walker bags. The bags are for the Baptist Homes for the elderly. If you painted a bag thanks. If you took 1 or more to paint at home and haven't returned it to Carol D'Abruzzo remember to bring it back in July.
The Animal Friends project is still going strong. Thank you for all donations to date. Please save and bring clean glass jars, painted or unpainted, to any Chapter meeting and give them to Rosemary. She is planning to continue delivering the jars to Animal Friends in November as we have in the past 3 years. Rosemary has targeted the number of jars at 100. We are asking that you please bring dog and cat food and treats by the November Meeting or sooner, so Rosemary can get the jars filled and delivered. In addition, Rosemary will be collecting any monetary donations to buy additional items as needed.
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.
