President´s Corner

Here we are in that action-packed time of year in between Thanksgiving and the December holidays. Our next program will be on Monday, December 17 at 1 pm. Yes, this will be the third Monday of the month — a slight change to our usual schedule, due to the holidays. Come and enjoy some music and camaraderie in the midst of the holiday season. The Hillside Club will be decorated beautifully to add to the spirit of the season.

Hospitality chair Suzie Lundeen's team for December will include Pat Atwood, Caroline Kim, Claire Lavery, Anita Lee, Eliza O'Malley, Grace Rutledge, and Katy Wilson. The team could use one more helper for cleanup, so if that would fit into your schedule, please contact Suzie.

We want to thank Julia Wenk for her generous donation to the Young Artist Competition Fund. If you happen to be contemplating tax-deductible contributions as we approach the end of the calendar year, I hope you will keep Etude Club's worthy projects in mind.

Happy Holidays!


Sue Waller
