President´s Corner

Welcome to the upcoming 2017-2018 season of the Etude Club! Sepetember 25th will be our first program and the music looks wonderful. Among other treats, this concert includes a flute duo that features our new member, Brenda Sakofsky – welcome Brenda!

Special thanks to the board members who have been working to get ready for the new sesason, especially Marlene Rogers, our program chair, who scheduled all the performers for the upcoming season. Also, a big thank you to Suzie Lundeen, who will be co-chairing the hospitality committee this year! If you haven't signed up to bring refreshments or to help with set up or clean up, you can do this on our website, or sign up at the upcoming omeeting.

In member news, Estelle Hausmann has resigned but sends her best regards to all of you. Over the summer, she moved to southern California to be closer to family. Estelle was an active member for some 45 years at Etude. She served many terms on the board and could alwaysbe counted on to help with refreshments, support the Young Artist Competition, enjoy the music and to give a warm smile.

Finally, it's time to pay your annual dues ($45) – bring your check to the meeting, pay online or mail a check to our treasurer, Sandy Watkins.

Looking forward to seeing you all soon,
Katy Wilson
