2020 Chapter President:
An affiliated chapter of the Society of Decorative Painters (SDP)
It was missed in the Newsletter issued my Rosemary. But look at the online newsletter and you can see the project Amy Shelhamer was proud to show. You can also check out some background art on her wall.
Did you hear the news? We are having a May meeting. There are restrictions to be followed. By now just about all of us have had the vaccines. But to err on the side of caution, we are requesting that masks be worn at all times, except while eating. We also request there be an attempt to social distance when possible. We do have people with medical issues, so out of respect to them we are requesting your co-operation with these requests.
Rosemary's acrylic and Sandra's watercolor will hopefully be rescheduled for a later time. Rosemary will be having a little make-it/take-it for you, so bring you acrylic painting supplies.
Hospitality is request you bring your own lunch. Pop in cans will be furnished. It has been decided that since there will be so many people handling the coffee pots that for now we will not be offering coffee, sorry.
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. This includes old make-it/take-its teachers may have.
The main service project for the Chapter is still painted memory boxes. The boxes are for the hospitals who will give them to mothers who's child has passed. If you painted a box thanks. If you took 1 or more to paint at home, please bring back at the next meeting and give it to Carol D'Abruzzo.
The Animal Friends project is still trying to go on strong. Thank you for all donations to date. Please save and bring clean glass jars, to any Chapter meeting and give them to Rosemary. You can also contact Rosemary and may be the jars you have can be gotten. She is planning to deliver the jars to Animal Friends as we have in the past 4 years, but in the Spring. In addition, Rosemary will accept any monetary donations to buy additional items as needed. A big thank you to all who donated.
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.
