President´s Corner

Greetings! This month our meeting starts at 12:30 with our semi-annual business meeting. Out lovely program will begin immediately following, at 1:00 pm.

A big thank you to those who made donations to the club in February and March: to Bebe Yee and Patricia Nottingham for their donations, and to Dorian Bikle, who made her gift in memory of Betty Gaebler, a past-president (1987-89), painist and teacher. In addition, we gratefully acknowledge a $200 donation from the Sigma Alpha Iota (SAI) East Bay Chapter to our Young Artist Competition Fund.

Mark your calendars for the Silver Tea, April 24th. This special and fun event, organized by Joan Reid, is not to be missed! In addition to the festivities, it is our only fundraiser for the Young Artist Competition. All proceeds will go to funding next year's competition.

Hope to see you soon,
Katy Wilson
