Meeting Cancelation – April 2020


In reviewing our current circumstances related to Covid-19, and with a considerate and serious response based upon the CDC guidelines, as well as many other governing agencies, it is with respect for the health of our fabulous members that our April General Meeting shall regretfully be cancelled.

Our April program was to hold our Painter of the Year competition, and that will now be held at our October General Meeting on October 12, 2020.

All those that have won a ribbon in Painter of the Month October 2019-March 2020 may enter a painting into Painter of the Year at the October General Meeting. Each of these ribbon winners will receive a reminder of this in September from the new Painter of the Month/Year Chair, Charlie (Charlotte) Lerner.

Hopefully, Linda Doll, our scheduled POY Judge will be also available!

I sincerely hope each of you will make excellent health decisions and avoid this virus during the next several weeks! In the meantime, please remain calm, focused, and stay in touch by phone, email, and Facetimel!

My suggestions to adapt to the situation are to utilize time at home to finish up your taxes, paint a painting or the house, clean a cupboard, clean your garage, cook a favorite recipe maybe even knit or crochet!!! And, of course, make a pie! For me, I’ll make a lemon meringue pie!

We continue forward adapting graciously to impermanence and continuous change in our lives, with love and respect,

Diane Moore
