December Meeting – Competition Awards and Holiday Fun.

Our annual awards and holiday meeting will be held on December 17th. 7:00 PM at tRG studio. As always, we will be having a print show – please bring a print to hang and be prepared to talk briefly to everyone about your print. We will be awarding the prizes for the competition winners and we will have a few other fun surprises. Please bring an appetizer, entree, dessert, or drinks to share. We have tableware, cups, ice, and decorations covered already. You may use the following form to let everyone know what you are bringing. This list can be looked at first so that you can see what others have already signed up to bring and avoid duplicates. We also would like a few volunteers to help move furniture and arrange the studio on the afternoon of the 15th. If you would like to assist please let Robert know.
